Dance Dance Christa Paffgen

Album: Never Take Friendship Personal (2005)
  • This song is about how sexual attractions can become an addiction. Ironically, scientists have proven that sexual experiences or images stimulate glands in the brain to produce endorphins that actually create a natural "high," hence the line "I need a fix in those heroin eyes." This song also explores how lonely people will often chase after a partner in order to fulfill themselves: "Only you entwined could make this orphan feel at home." >>
