  • Lyrics
  • She was a Jezebel, this burstin' queen
    Livin' her life like a bad sweet dream
    Tellin' me lies when the truth was clear
    I think she knew what I wanted to hear

    Spinnin' around like a wheel on fire
    Walkin' the tightrope on love's highwire
    A fatal attraction is where I'm at
    There's no escapin' me

    I just want to be close to you
    And do all the things you want me to
    I just want to be close to you
    And show you the way I feel

    I feel love when I'm lying in the midnight hour
    Holding you's just like a dream
    Love is never what it seems

    When we touch
    And you're holdin' me the way you feel
    Girl, you make my dreams come true
    You make my dreams come true

    I just want to be close to you
    And do all the things you want me to
    I just want to be close to you
    And show you the way I feel

    She was a Gemini on the cusp of Mars
    She holds me back but she goes too far
    Windin' me up just to let me down
    So emotional gagged and bound

    There's more to this than meets the eye
    A devil woman locked inside
    With the formal rising I was scared
    I think I was possessed

    I just want to be close to you
    And do all the things you want me to
    I just want to be close to you
    And show you the way I feel

    I feel love everytime your body's next to mine
    Somethin' deep inside of me
    Wants to love you endlessly

    When we touch
    Girl, you don't know how it makes me feel
    I just can't believe it's real
    I can't believe it's real

    I just want to be close to you
    And do all the things you want me to
    I just want to be close to you
    And show you the way I feel

    She had an attitude I can't explain
    You never know if your in flame
    Tying me up with elastic words
    I'm on a countdown till I get hurt

    Her blood was hot she burned so bright
    A neon sign there in the night
    It's hard to say if I went too far
    My heart still bears a scar

    I just want to be close to you
    I just want to be close to you
    I just want to be close to you

    She was a Jezebel, this burstin' queen
    Livin' her life like a bad sweet dream
    Tellin' me lies when the truth was clear
    I think she knew what I wanted to hear

    I just want to be close to you

    Spinnin' around like a wheel on fire
    Walkin' the tightrope on love's highwire
    A fatal attraction is where I'm at
    There's no escapin' me

    I want to be close to you
    And do all the things you want me to
    I just want to be close to you (I just want to be close to you, baby)
    And show you the way I feel

    I just want to be close to you
    And do all the things you want me to
    I just want to be close to you
    And show you the way I feel Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
