  • I love the way you look at me
    I feel the pain you place inside
    You lock me up inside your dirty cage
    Well I'm alone inside my mind

    I'd like to teach you all the rules
    I'd get to see them set in stone
    I like it when you chain me to the bed
    But then your secrets never shone

    I need to feel you, you need to feel me
    I can't control you, you're not the one for me, no

    I can't control you, you can't control me
    I need to feel you, so why's there even you and me?

    I love the way you rake my skin
    I feel the hate you place inside
    I need to get your voice out of my head
    Cause I'm that guy you'll never find

    I think you know all of the rules
    There's no expressions on your face
    I'm hope that some day you will let me go
    Release me from my dirty cage

    I need to feel you, you need to feel me
    I can't control you, you're not the one for me, no

    I can't control you, you can't control me
    I need to feel you, so why's there even you and me?

    I love the way you look at me
    I love the way you smack my ass
    I love the dirty things you do
    I have control of you

    I love the way you look at me
    I love the way you smack my ass
    I love the dirty things you do
    I have control of you

    I love the way you look at me
    I love the way you smack my ass
    I love the dirty things you do
    I have control of you

    I love the way you look at me
    I love the way you smack my ass
    I love the dirty things you do
    I have control of you

    I need to feel you, you need to feel me
    I can't control you, you're not the one for me, no

    I can't control you, you can't control me
    I need to feel you, so why's there even you and me?

    You're not the one for me, no
    You're not the one for me, no
    You're not the one for me, no
    You're not the one for me, no Writer/s: WESLEY REID SCANTLIN, BRAD STEWART

  • Helmslayer from LvEveryone just ignoring the fact he likes his a$$ smacked
  • Cristian from CopenhagenWho is the girl?
  • Zero from Nowhere, NjI just did my research, it IS, in fact the same Brad Stewart from Shinedown.
  • Zero from Nowhere, NjIt says in the lyrics that a guy named Brad Stewart helped write this song; does anyone know if this is the same Brad Stewart that used to play bass for Shinedown?
  • Matt from Houston, TxI've stopped watching wrestling since wwe has fired paul london. sorry
  • Blake from Manchester, TnFor WWE fans, this was the theme song for Survivor Series 2001. Quality tune for a quality show.
  • Ben from Gosford, AustraliaApparently he couldn't leave her because the sex was too good. Don't know about anyone else here, but if I was with some woman and that was the only reason she stayed with me, I'd feel pretty used.
  • Myles from Sydney, CanadaYeah, unless they have child-lock on, which my guess would be no seeing as it's only the 2 of them (and YES I do know he has a kid), she would be able to get out. Just saying. And when i listen to this song when my parents are around, I turn it down and think of something to say when the S&M part comes up. XD
  • Will from Mcallen , Txthis song is about his girlfriend and him having s&m sex. just look at the words " i love the way you look at me, i love the way you smack my ass, i love the dirty things you do, when i hhave control of you". self exclamatory
  • Andy from Halifax, EnglandYes, very well noticed, made me chuckle (but only very quietly 2 myself)
    (and i think the idea is that the girlfriend is stranded, rather then the fact that she may be locked in the car)
  • Nick from Paramus, NjDid anyone notice in the video when Wes locks his girl in the car and throws the keys away, the keys actually land in a "puddle" of "mud"?
    Clever.
