Charted: 6 23
  • Love is a stranger
    In an open car
    To tempt you in
    And drive you far away

    And I want you
    And I want you
    And I want you so
    It's an obsession

    Love is a danger
    Of a different kind
    To take you away
    And leave you far behind
    And love love love
    Is a dangerous drug
    You have to receive it
    And you still can't
    Get enough of the stuff

    It's savage and it's cruel
    And it shines like destruction
    Comes in like the flood
    And it seems like religion
    It's noble and it's brutal
    It distorts and deranges
    And it wrenches you up
    And you're left like a zombie

    And I want you
    And I want you
    And I want you so
    It's an obsession

    It's guilt edged
    Glamorous and sleek by design
    You know it's jealous by nature
    False and unkind
    It's hard and restrained
    And it's totally cool
    It touches and it teases
    As you stumble in the debris

    And I want you
    And I want you
    And I want you so
    It's an obsession Writer/s: ANNIE LENNOX, DAVID ALLAN STEWART
