"Sex Without Love" as written by Robert Schwartzman and Ben Lee....
I saw you
At a party
And asked you if you'd like the dance with me
You asked me
For a ride home
And I thought that I should take a chance on you

First we're talking
Then we're kissing
Finding out what I've been missing

[Chorus]
Heaven's above
Sex without love
I thought you wanted me
I thought you wanted me
Heaven's above
Sex without love
I thought I wanted you
I thought I wanted you

To lay down
Lay down beside me
But here we are and it feels weird with you
I wish someone would tell me
Where is my baby
And how I found myself right here tonight
This is not my kind of danger
Taking candy from a stranger

[Chorus]

This whole thing is getting strange
I sorta wish I never came
All this talk and playing games
Is slowly driving
Me insane

[Chorus]

Oh oh
Sex without love
Oh oh
Sex without love
Oh oh
Sex without love
Oh oh
Sex without love

    Song MeaningBen Lee is often (not always) autobiographical. I'm NOT suggesting this as a fact, but maybe given his popularity though the 00's came the 'easy girls'. Something he probably wasn't that wired to - if you listen to his earlier music it's noticeably thin on sexually activity and suggestion, particularly sex for the sake of sex which is so common in pop music.

    So, the theory goes, he (or the protagonist of the song) is suddenly realising he can get this 'easy' sex from a particular sort of admirer(s) who goes after the popular types as a kind of trophy prize, and Ben is not so keen on the whole idea even if it feels good at first, hence the opening par and the line "candy from a stranger" followed by lyrics like "I sorta wish I never came", "slowly driving me insane" etc.
