  • Red was the color of her eyes
    And she put me in a meditation state
    Her skin was white so white
    Looked like it had no expiration date
    Black is the color of the night
    And it's time for feeding and her body waits
    There's just something 'bout the demon that she brings out of me
    When we raise hell I can't stay away

    Aw, give it to me now
    So evil in your dress
    It circulates you start to feel it
    Devil in the flesh
    Once you start to invoke her spirit
    Got you on the floor
    She comes alive when your appearing
    Hungry for some more

    I think she's got that true blood
    Every time you're 'round I can smell it in you
    She's got that true blood
    I come around and raise the hell out of you
    It's that demon, it's so mean, that's got me screaming
    Make me wanna build a coffin for two
    She's got that true blood
    But baby, I just do it for the thrill out of you
    It makes me say

    Now I feel my fever on the rise
    In my bones and my body starts to quake
    Straight up from my toes to my mind
    She controls me but I don't want to escape
    All the other ones that have tried
    Find out that they have made their final mistake
    But when she got a bite of my type
    She told me that she found her perfect blood mate

    So evil in your dress
    It circulates you start to feel it
    Devil in the flesh
    Once you start to invoke her spirit
    Got you on the floor
    She comes alive when your appearing
    Hungry for some more

    I think she's got that true blood
    Every time you're 'round I can smell it in you
    She's got that true blood
    I come around and raise the hell out of you
    It's that demon, it's so mean, that's got me screaming
    Make me wanna build a coffin for two
    She's got that true blood
    But baby, I just do it for the thrill out of you
    It makes me say

    Your pheromones invaded my instinct
    I start to seem like an animal
    Roast me in your perfection, I'm mad, I don't wanna think
    'Cause the others wanna burn with me but they don't hold a candle
    It feels like
    The others wanna burn with me but they don't hold a candle
    Ooh sometimes it feels like

    I think she's got that true blood
    Every time you're 'round I can smell it in you
    She's got that true blood
    I come around and raise the hell out of you
    It's that demon, it's so mean, that's got me screaming
    Make me wanna build a coffin for two
    She's got that true blood
    But baby, I just do it for the thrill out of you
    It makes me say
    Give it to me, that goes to boogie, that goes to high
    Give it to me

    Yeah
    Now that you got me
    Tell me what your gonna do with me
    I taste your blood
    I found out you was a perfect fit
    Mmm, come on mama
    Show me what your working with
    Mmm, come on mama
    Go on show me what your working with
    Show me what your working with

    Now that you got me
    Tell me what your gonna do with me
    Cause I can taste your blood
    I found out you was a perfect fit
    Mmm, come on mama
    Show me what your working with
    I said come on mama
    Go on show me what your working with
    Show me what your working with

    We got that true blood, she got that, she hit me with that
