She's seductive;
She does it well.
She'll charge you by the hour
For a straight trip down to Hell
Shell direct you;
When you think you know.
She gonna let you go.
She gonna let you go.

I'm not a lover,
But I'm still concerned.
That when you touch the fire
That your heart can still get burned
Then she'll want you
That I know.
She's gonna let me go.
Gonna let me go.

See all those familiar faces
Crowding in my mind.
I know that now is not the time.
Run around, with someone else
Satisfy yourself, but don't fool me.
Don'tcha let it be
A state of emergency.

I pledge allegiance
To the cause.
She'll tell you that she's leaving
If you don't put your life on pause.
She'll surprise you;
Ya think you know.
She's gonna let you go.
She gonna let you go.

See all those familiar faces
Crowded in my mind.
I know that now is not the time.
Run around, with someone else
Satisfy yourself, but don't fool me.
Don'tcha let it be
A state of emergency.

I know it's hard when love's unfair.
But that doesn't mean you shouldn't care.
Show me the way to reach your heart.
Where do I start?

See all those familiar faces
Crowded in my mind...
I know that now is not the time.
Run around, with someone else
Satisfy yourself, but don't fool me.
Don'tcha let it be, no no!
Don'tcha let it be...
A state of emergency.
