Love Voodoo

When I first met you on the roof,
You caught me with your web of youth.
But now I know the wicked truth it's much too late, so what's the use in fighting?

You peel me like an onion skin
And wonder at the state I'm in.
One day you'll turn up to begin and find there's nothing left but innuendo.

Beside you, others fade away
Like amateurs in love's charade.
Much more than just a game you play,
These certain rules become a way of living.

Night after night I try to prove that I can resist you.
Tied up inside your love voodoo, designed to manipulate.

The queen of sensuality, you shelter me from liberty.
It's nothing short of piracy.
That's not to say it doesn't please me sometimes.

Now this may come as no surprise,
But I'm content to compromise,
Until the day you realize that I have been manipulating you.

Manipulating...

Night after night I try to prove that I can resist you.
Tied up inside your love voodoo, designed to manipulate.

Night after night after night...I can resist you...

Night after night I try to prove that I can resist you.
Tied up inside your love voodoo, designed to manipulate.

Lyrics - Taylor, Rhodes, LeBon, 1997
