"Love Voodoo" as written by and Le Bon Cuccurullo....
When I first met you on the roof
You caught me in 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 subtle moves 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 realise
That I have been manipulating you

Night after night I try to prove
That I can resist you
Tied up inside your love voodoo
Designed to manipulate

Yes I'm tied up
Inside up
Inside your living
But it's voodoo to me.

Every night how I try
How I try to resist you
But It's no good to me

Night after night I try to prove
That I can resist you
Tied up inside your love voodoo
Designed to manipulate

Night after night I try to prove
That I can resist you
Tied up inside your love voodoo
Designed to manipulate

    General CommentI heard from someone who seems to have severely misinterpreted many of the songs that this was about OCD. I kind of like that interpretation though. I hear John wrote this song.

    General CommentI can't believe there aren't more comments...this song is right up there with thier best. This song really reminds me of Depeche Mode's style. Heres what I think its about

    Web of youth is a common metaphore for a guy being attracted to young flesh. So he meets this girl, and at first he thinks hes just hot for her body...but then as he interacts with her more and more, she gets under his skin, and he is seduced by her. Shes pretty much a woman of pure seduction. Almost makes me think of a succubus.
