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 

[Chorus]
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 

[Chorus] 

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 

[Chorus] 

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! 

[Chorus]

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 

[Repeat: x3]
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 

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 

[Chorus]
