Track Name: Cat People
See these eyes so green?
I can stare for a thousand years
Colder than the moon
It's been so long
And I've been putting out fire
With gasoline

See these eyes so red?
Red like jungle burning bright
Those who feel me near
Pull the blinds and change their minds
It's been so long
Still this pulsing night
A plague I call a heartbeat
Just be still with me
You wouldn't believe what I've been through

It's been so long, and you've been so long

And I've been putting out fire with gasoline
Putting out fire with gasoline

See these tears to blue
An ageless heart that can never mend
These tears will never dry
A judgement made can never ben
See these eyes so green?
Oh, I can stare for a thousand years
Just be still with me
You wouldn't believe what I've been through

It's been so long
And you've been so long

And I've been putting out fire with gasoline
Putting out fire with gasoline
It's been so long, so long, so long...
Track Name: Love Like Voodoo
I said yeah, c'mon c'mon c'mon
Wow, you call me "Sugar"
I got my work it shoes on
Yeah, you my sweet lover's lover
From dusk 'til dawn, yeah

Oh, I got a color
She's screamin' "Red for rage!"
I gotta fire
It's burnin' red hot for you
Every time I hit the stage

You gotta love like voodoo
It's all over town
Love that thing that you do when you come around
You gotta love like voodoo
It don't make a sound
Don't ya know I miss you
When you're not around
Ah yeah, alright

I'll be your one hot Mama
You know I waited so long for you, yeah
I gotta fire
It's burnin' deep inside me, baby
You know it won't take long
I start to shudder
You know I can't be caged
I gotta love
And, baby, you light my fuse
Won't you take me away?

CHORUS 2

Yeah, yeah I start to shudder
You know I can't be changed
I gotta love
Baby, you light my fuse
Take me away

CHORUS OUT
Track Name: (I'm Not) Like Everybody Else
I won't take all that they hand me down
And make out a smile, though I wear a frown
And I won't take it all lying down
'Cause once I get started I go to town
'Cause I'm not like everybody else
I'm not like everybody else
I'm not like everybody else
I'm not like everybody else
And I don't want to ball about like everybody else
And I don't want to live my life like everybody else
And I won't say that I feel fine like everybody else
'Cause I'm not like everybody else
I'm not like everybody else
But darling, you know that I love you true
Do anything that you want me to
Confess all my sins like you want me to
There's one thing that I will say to you
I'm not like everybody else
I'm not like everybody else
I'm not like everybody else
I'm not like everybody else
And I don't want to ball about like everybody else
And I don't want to live my life like everybody else
And I won't say that I feel fine like everybody else
'Cause I'm not like everybody else
I'm not like everybody else
Like everybody else
Like everybody else
Like everybody else
Like everybody else
If you all want me to settle down
Slow up and stop all my running 'round
Do everything like you want me to
There's one thing that I will say to you
I'm not like everybody else
I'm not like everybody else
I'm not like everybody else
I'm not like everybody else
And I don't want to ball about like everybody else
And I don't want to live my life like everybody else
And I won't say that I feel fine like everybody else
'Cause I'm not like everybody else
I'm not like everybody else
Like everybody else (like everybody else)
Like everybody else (like everybody else)
Like everybody else (like everybody else)
Track Name: Wild Imagination
I want something bigger, baby, badder than bad
I wanna go faster than they say that I can
Gimme somethin' more than just another sensation
I want something wilder than my wild imagination

Well, you say you wanna take me wanna gimme a try
Don't wanna jump out the window, baby
I wanna fly
You wanna eat me like some sweet sensation
I want something wilder than my wild imagination

Wild imagination
Wild imagination
Wild imagination
I gotta wild, wild wild
I gotta wild, wild wild

I want something bigger, baby, badder than bad
I wanna go faster than they say that I can
Gimme somethin' more than just another sensation
I want something wilder than my wild imagination

Wild imagination

I want something bigger, baby, badder than bad
I wanna go faster than they say that I can
Gimme somethin' more than just another sensation
I want something wilder than my wild imagination

Wild imagination

Wild imagination
Track Name: Vicious Kisses
Your love
Attacks like vicious kisses
Reveals my darkest wishes
Babe, against the backdrop of my bone
Your love
A deeper, darker kindness
Yeah, baby, I want you the hardest
I said won't you break away my stone

Your love is nothin' but vicious kisses
Burnin' inside of me
When you're gone
Oh, I miss it
Baby, set me free

Your love
A secret place I hide
Just a blind spot apart from time
Makes me wanna kinda just let go
Want you to know
The sins and stains that scar us
You get lost inside my forest
I'll follow you wherever you may go

Your love is nothin' but vicious kisses
Burnin' inside of me
When you're gone
Oh, I miss it
Baby, set me free

Your love
Attacks like vicious kisses
Reveal my darkest wishes
Oh, babe, against the backdrop of my bone
Oh, love
A secret place I hide
You're just a blind spot in time
Makes me wanna kinda just let go

CHORUS x2

Your love. Vicious kisses.
Only your love.
Track Name: Want What I Want
I gotta lover
And, man, what a lover
And I got another
Don't know about the other
Listen to me brother I'm a woman
I don't wanna be your mother
Ya see I need somebody
Not just somebody
Don't you say that you love me
Babe, that's a sure way to lose me
Yeah, you can kiss me, you can curse me
Neither one is gonna hurt me
Not tonight
You can kiss me, you can curse me
Neither one is gonna hurt me
Not tonight no

Cause I want what I want when I want what I want
Get it?
Get what I want when I want what I want
Give it all that I got
When I want what I want
Cause it makes me
Feel good

Ya see I need somebody
Not just somebody
Don't you say that you love me
Babe, that's a sure way to lose me
Yeah, you can kiss me, you can curse me
Neither one is gonna hurt me
Not tonight
You can kiss me, you can curse me
Neither one is gonna hurt me
Not tonight no

CHORUS

Well, I gotta lover
And, man, what a lover
And I got another
Don't know about the other
Get your heart out of the gutter
Let's crawl back under the covers
One more time
Get your heart out of the gutter
Let's crawl back under the covers
Yeah, you're mine

CHORUS x2

It makes me feel good
Yeah, it makes me feel good
It makes me feel so good
C'mon and make me feel good
Track Name: Love Amnesia
Well, you forgot our anniversary
And you know just what it means to me
Got you a '65 Cadillac
Even went and had it painted flat black
C'mon now, baby, you know that ain't right
I'm gonna need a little somethin'
To get me through the night
Oh yeah
You know how to please me, baby
Now don't ya tease me, alright

I need some love amnesia
Love, love, love
Love amnesia
Love, love, love

You forgot about my birthday
Just two words I wanna hear you say
You forgot about my big show
Oh, surprise, you never, ever wanna go
C'mon now, baby, I don't wanna fight
You know just what I need, yeah
To make me feel alright

You know how to please me, honey
Now don't ya tease me
Alright

CHORUS

Now I gotta tell ya
Sometimes in love
There's differences, it hurts, I know
But that's just the way it goes
It's the gift and the curse
You're my friend then my foe, baby
I don't know why
We don't see eye to eye all the time
Fuss and fight over every little thing
But deep down inside
You know me
C'mon c'mon
Set me free

Yeah so baby that's the way it goes
See, I remember but you mostly don't
I can forget about those nights I cried
When your sweet lovin' keeps me satisfied
C'mon now, baby, you know it's alright
We gotta love amnesia
Make me feel alright, alright, alright
You know how to please me, honey
So don't you tease me
Alright

CHORUS
