Dangerous

Album: Dangerous (1991)
  • The way she came into the place
    I knew right then and there
    There was something different
    About this girl

    The way she moved
    Her hair, her face, her lines
    Divinity in motion

    As she stalked the room
    I could feel the aura
    Of her presence
    Every head turned
    Feeling passion and lust

    The girl was persuasive
    The girl I could not trust
    The girl was bad
    The girl was dangerous

    I never knew but I was
    Walking the line
    Come go with me
    I said I have no time
    And don't you pretend we didn't
    Talk on the phone
    My baby cried
    She left me standing alone

    She's so dangerous
    The girl is so dangerous
    Take away my money
    Throw away my time
    You can call me honey
    But you're no damn good for me

    She came at me in sections
    With the eyes of desire
    I fell trapped into her
    Web of sin
    A touch, a kiss
    A whisper of love
    I was at the point
    Of no return

    Deep in the darkness of
    Passion's insanity
    I felt taken by lust's
    Strange inhumanity
    This girl was persuasive
    This girl I could not trust
    The girl was bad
    The girl was dangerous

    I never knew
    But I was living in vain
    She called my house
    She said you know my name
    And don't you pretend
    You never did me before
    With tears in her eyes
    My baby walked out the door

    She's so dangerous
    The girl is so dangerous
    Take away my money
    Throw away my time
    You can call me honey
    But you're no damn good for me

    Dangerous
    The girl is so dangerous
    I have to pray to god
    'Cause I know how
    Lust can blind
    It's a passion in my soul
    But you're no damn lover
    Friend of mine

    I can not sleep alone tonight
    My baby left me here tonight
    I cannot cope 'til it's all right
    You and your manipulation
    You hurt my baby

    And then it happened
    She touched me
    For the lips of
    A strange woman
    Drop as a honeycomb
    And her mouth was
    Smoother than oil
    But her inner spirit and words
    Were as sharp as
    A two-edged sword
    But I loved it
    'Cause it's dangerous

    Dangerous
    The girl is so dangerous
    Take away my money
    Throw away my time
    You can call me honey
    But you're no damn good for me

    Dangerous
    The girl is so dangerous
    Take away my money
    Throw away my time
    You can call me honey
    But you're no damn good for me

    Dangerous
    The girl is so dangerous
    Take away my money
    Throw away my time
    You can call me honey
    But you're no damn good for me

    Dangerous
    The girl is so dangerous
    I have to pray to god
    'cause I know how
    Lust can blind
    It's a passion in my soul
    But you're no damn lover
