"Desire" as written by and Mike Portnoy Billy Sheehan....
You got me so spun that I can't control my head
Now I don't know who I am
You're acting so sly but you know what you did
And I can't seem to get you off my mind, yeah

I'm tempted by the heat of desire
And you've got me at the end of my rope, oh
You bait me like your victim for hire
But I want you so, I don't think that I can let go

(Oh not just yet, but I can't forget)

I'd leave you behind but you're everywhere I go
Ain't no way to get out
You got me hooked on your drug and I'm losing all control
Now I know I'll never be the same, no

I'm tempted by the heat of desire
And you've got me at the end of my rope, hey yeah
You bait me like your victim for hire
But I want you so, I don't think that I can let go, no

Is this just some thing we call desire?
Stop me if I'm preaching to the choir

(Oh, break me down)

(Put your faith in me, yeah)

Tempted by the heat of desire
And you've got me at the end of my rope
You know you bait me like your victim for hire
And I don't stand a chance, up against you baby

I'm tempted by the heat of desire
You know I let you play me like a victim for hire
And I want you so, I don't think that I can let go

(Oh hell no)

    My InterpretationThis is about a guy who really likes, and still has feelings for, a girl that he used to be in a relationship with. When they broke up, he felt like she really screwed him over and he was hurt pretty bad by her actions. Now, after all their history, she is coming around again and making advances. He wants her and desires her in a physical nature, and wants to reciprocate her advances, but he holds himself back because he can't forget and get past how bad she treated him before.
    The last line is supposed to read "though I want you so, I don't think that I can let go."
    This is a great song!
