  • I needed more than just a kiss goodnight
    Had to go get something out my system I
    ignored the warnings, bit the fruit
    She might have tasted good
    But man she was my kryptonite

    Shoulda known she was trouble from the start
    I, knew she'd broken hearts I,
    thought I'd take that chance
    Danced with the she devil in the pale moonlight
    Alarm bells rang, but I loved the drama
    In a dark place but I loved the karma sutra
    Shoulda closed that door
    But I kept going back for more

    She's electric, she's the current running through my veins
    She's a siren, hearing voices that I can't explain
    Now I should be thinking it over
    Instead I'm calling her over
    Now she's here and she won't go quietly
    I Should be thinking it over
    Instead I'm calling her over
    Now she's here but she won't go quietly

    I needed more than just a cheap thrill ride
    See I needed something that ran deep inside
    Ignored the warnings, bit the fruit
    She might have tasted good
    But man she was my kryptonite

    Shoulda known it wouldn't last for a year I,
    knew it'd all end it tears I,
    cracked, she was mind addictive, never felt scripted
    Upredicatable, tied up, but no strings attatched
    Left scratch marks on my back
    Her cold eyes got me excited and I can't hide the truth

    She's electric, she's the current running through my veins
    (I just can't kick the habit)
    (I just can't kick the habit)
    She's a siren, hearing voices that I can't explain
    (I just can't kick the habit)
    Now I should be thinking it over
    Instead I'm calling her over
    Now she's here and she won't go quietly
    I should be thinking it over
    Instead I'm calling her over
    Now she's here and she won't go quietly

    Can't see the end of this or who survives
    It's just another case of do or die
    Can't see the end of this or who survives
    It's just another case, another case, another case
    another case, another case

    She's electric, she's the current running through my veins
    (I just can't kick the habit)
    (I just can't kick the habit)
    She's a siren, hearing voices that I can't explain
    (I just can't kick the habit)
    Now I, should be thinking it over
    Instead I'm calling her over
    Now she's here and she won't go quietly
    I should be thinking it over
    Instead I'm calling her over
    Now she's here and she won't go quietly

    Can't see the end of this or who survives
    It's just another case of do or die
    Can't see the end of this or who survives
    It's just another case of do or die
    Can't see the end of this or who survives
    It's just another case of do or die Writer/s: ALEX JAMES SMITH, ELLIOT GLEAVE, FABIO LENDRUM
