Obsessions
Obsessions
Obsessions

It happened in the middle of the night
When I thought I had control
Didn't want to be the one to fight
Didn't want to lose my soul
I was up for somethin' more
And I thought I'd get it started
Paralyzed, polarized
Hung on every word

I'm in love with the child inside
I don't have a right to follow you
Or have a license to get closer
A love that won't be denied
For you are something like I've never seen
I'm a man who's heart is cryin'

Just another one of my obsessions
You don't want to be a special toy
I never be the one to hurt you
Every other girl or boy
Just another little indiscretion
Another game that you want to try
You can never be unfaithful
If you gotta love somebody
(Aah aah aah )

Wanna make your mountains high
Wanna take your valley low
There's a moral to my story
Let me in and close the door
Until the mornin' light
What I'd give to live inside you
Make me wait, we separate
But only to return

Whisper and I'll be there
I don't want you beggin' me to stop
I just want to drown in your desire
Love is for those who dare
All the cream is risin' to the top
And it's the love you save from dyin'
(Aah)

Just another one my obsessions
(Aah)
Something I could never find
(Aah)
It's the kind of love that makes your heart
Feel obsessed with mine
(Obsessed with mine)
Any battle for the one possession
(Aah)
Another game that you want to try
(Aah)
You can never be unfaithful
If you gotta love somebody
(Aah aah aah aah)
(Aah aah)
(Aah)

[incomprehensible] never have
For the guy you tried, tried

Just another one of my obsessions
(Aah)
You don't want to be a special toy
(Aah)
I never be the one to hurt you
(Hey)
Every other girl or boy
(Girl or boy)
Just another little indiscretion
(Hey)
Another game that you want to try
(Aah)
You can never be unfaithful
If you gotta love somebody
(Aah aah aah aah)
(Hey)
Tell me you friend
(Aah aah)
Tell me, tell me
Tell me you baby

Just another one my obsessions
(Aah)
Something I could never find
(Aah)
It's the kind of love that makes your heart
Feel obsessed with mine
(Baby with mine)
Any battle for the one possession
(Hey)
Another game that you want to try
(Aah)
You can never be unfaithful
(Can't have myself)
If you gotta love somebody
(I can't have myself)

Just another one my obsessions
(You my girl)
You don't want to be a special toy
(You my girl)
I never be the one to hurt you
(You're everything)
Every other girl or boy
(Gotta have, gotta have)
Just another little indiscretion
(Gotta have)
Another game that you want to try
(Aah)
You can never be unfaithful
(Aah)
