"Bittersweet" as written by Sophie Michell Ellis-bextor, Hannah Robinson, Russell Small, Richard Frederick Stannard and James David Wiltshire....
How can I deny this feeling?
Can't use the fuse that lights the spark
Don't think I'll hold out too much longer

The lines are blurred in the dividing
I deserve light, I desire dark
Your influence is getting stronger

Defined by mind, my body is too curious
So won't you show me all there is to know?

I know I shouldn't call
But something makes me crave the heat
Your love is bittersweet (so here I am)
The fire in your touch
I always find so hard to beat
Your love is bittersweet (so here I am)

No substitute for real pleasure
You feed the need that lies in me
I've lost all sense to this devotion

One touch and there's a rush of electricity
So won't you show me all there is to know?

I know I shouldn't call
But something makes me crave the heat
Your love is bittersweet (so here I am)
The fire in your touch
I always find so hard to beat
Your love is bittersweet (so here I am)

One touch and there's a rush of electricity
So won't you show me all there is to know?
Anytime you call my name

    General CommentAboslutely fantastic song by an absolutely fantastic singer, Sophie Ellis-Bextor.

    The song is about her being in a relationship with someone that she knows she couldn't be in, but can't help herself. She knows it's bad for her, but she doesn't care anymore because the love is so tempting and pleasing.
