Dangerous by James Marsters
****************************

I don't think you know my name
I think you'd leave me standing in the rain
Pretty little girl, got a thing for me
But you'd cut me open and let me bleed

But I'm lookin' at you
With your long brown hair
Pretty little face
Smilin' everywhere

You look so good
When you come my way
But I have to look down
When you talk to me

'Cause you're dangerous
Dangerous
Dangerous
And you don't even know it

One baby, two, maybe three more years
Be a full hot baby, have all your curves
In a little taste of irony:
You'll be a too hot baby, too good for me

But I'm lookin' at you
With your long brown hair
Pretty little face
Smilin' everywhere

You look so good
When you come my way
But I have to look down
When you talk to me

'Cause you're dangerous
Dangerous
Dangerous
And you don't even know it

So little baby, you better stay set
Play with fire when you get too wet
Set me down and leave me be
Find the devil when you unchain me

But I'll be looking at you
With your long brown hair
Pretty little feet
Sparkling everywhere

You look so good
When you come my way
But I have to look down
When you talk to me

'Cause you're dangerous
Dangerous
Dangerous
And you don't even know it

    General CommentA song about a guy who likes a girl, but she is too young for him, In a couple of years when she is older and it is seen as more acceptable in society for him to see her, then she wont even notice him. Because she's too hot and can have more guys now

    General CommentThe song is not autobiographical but more loosely based on her. He never thought of her as anything other than a little sister as he has stated many times. She also knows about the song. He has also written songs about the Characters Faith and Buffy not the actual people.

    If you want a funny story of how she flirted with Hugh Laurie on House two years after Buffy ended watch her interview on Conan.

    Pete Wentz based an album on her when she was 19 or 20. This was written when she was 17 in 2003 (the last year of Buffy).

    People are making a much bigger deal of this than it actually is trying to dissect the lyrics and apply them to real life which doesn't work because it is not autobiographical.

    General CommentI thought it was about a guy who has a thing for a girl who's perfect - and a little on the bad side, but he can't even bring up the courage to talk to her.

    General CommentThe song is not autobiographical but more loosely based on her The song is not about michelle, but the concept of a younger girl flirting with a older guy. He never thought of her as anything other than a little sister as he has stated many times. She also knows about the song. He has also written songs about the Characters Faith and Buffy not the actual people.

    General CommentLyrics are slightly off of the album version - I think these are the live version lyrics though. ^^ Great song!


    --Album version--

    I don't think you know my name,
    And I think you'd leave me standing in the rain
    You're a pretty little girl, got a thing for me
    But you'd cut me open and let me bleed

    But I've been lookin' at you
    With your long brown hair
    Pretty little feet
    Sparklin' everywhere

    You look so good
    When you come my way
    But I have to look down
    When you talk to me

    'Cause you're dangerous
    Dangerous
    You're dangerous
    And you don't even know it

    One baby, two, maybe three more years
    Be a full grown baby, have all your curves
    Here's my little taste of irony:
    You'll be a ten hot lady, too good for me

    But I'm lookin' at you
    With your long brown hair
    Pretty little feet
    Sparklin' everywhere

    You look so good
    When you come my way
    But I have to look down
    When you talk to me

    'Cause you're dangerous
    You're dangerous
    You're dangerous
    And you don't even know it

    So little baby, you better stay set
    You play with fire when you get too wet
    So set me down and leave me be
    You find the devil when you unchain me

    But I'll be looking at you
    With your long brown hair
    Pretty little feet
    Sparkling everywhere

    You look so good
    When you come my way
    But I have to look down
    When you talk to me

    'Cause you're dangerous
    You're dangerous
    You're dangerous
    And you don't even know it
