Possession Obsession

Album: Big Bam Boom (1984)
Charted: 30
  • You know there's something you need
    Right here and now
    To fill the space inside of yourself
    Money love or power
    When you want to have the number one first run anyone
    You're crazy 'til you own them

    You ought to know better than that
    The more that you buy the less you get back
    It's a case of possession obsession
    Gimme Gimme

    The compulsion to count the percentage of time
    Spent between two lovers
    Can turn an hour into a crime
    And all the good times suffer
    Though you know it's only jealousy
    You can't help but be
    Haunted by your passion

    Don't you know it's a matter of fact
    The more that you take the less you give back
    Just a taste of possession obsession
    Brings a case of possession obsession
    Gimme Gimme
