Lines on your face don't bother me
Down in my chair when you dance over me
I can't help myself
I've got to see you again

Late in the night when I'm all alone
And I look at the clock and I know you're not home
I can't help myself

I've got to see you again
I could almost go there
Just to watch you be seen
I could almost go there
Just to live in a dream

But no I won't go for any of those things
To not touch your skin is not why I sing
I can't help myself
I've got to see you again

I could almost go there
Just to watch you be seen
I could almost go there
Just to live in a dream

No I won't go to share you with them
But oh! even though I know where you've been
I can't help myself
I've got to see you again
Oh, I can't help myself
I've got to see you again

    I agree with jerkygirl... Seems pretty apparent it's about an erotic dancer, and sung from the point of view of a man's lust for her.

    I think it's about a dancer that she has the hots for and she want to go just to watch the girl be seen however she doesn't want to share her with "them".

    I think she's referring to an affair

    "No, I won't go to share you with them
    But oh, even though I know where you've been
    I can't help myself
    I've got to see you again"

    ^^ example enough
