"Dangerous" as written by and Martin Gore....
The things you do
Aren't good for my health
The moves you make
You make for yourself
The means you use
Aren't meant to confuse
Although they do
They're the ones that I would choose

And I wouldn't want it any other way
You wouldn't let me anyway

Dangerous
The way you leave me wanting more
Dangerous
That's what I want you for
Dangerous
When I am in your arms
Dangerous
Know I will come to harm

The lies you tell
Aren't meant to deceive
They're not there
For me to believe
I've heard
Your vicious words
You know by now
It takes a lot to see me hurt

And I couldn't take it any other way
But there's a price I have to pay

    General CommentLove the song. I think it's about being in an abusive relationship, but almost enjoying it. The person just keeps bringing you down, but it's like a breath of fresh air. Even knowing that it's going to hurt you, you go on with it.

    General CommentIt' about being in a harmful relationship. But, as he's smitten with her, even though he knows he shouldn't be with her, he's so drawn to her that he won't dare leave. If anything, her callous, devious ways make him want her even more.

    General CommentHe is claerly a cheater, who is falling in love with his misstress. He knows he can´t have her, but wants her anyway. He knows that their love is impossible, and must end some day, and when the day comes, he will get hurt, but his feelings for her, are to powerfull to stop in time. Very powerfull song, hope he gets her some day.

    General Commenti think song is incredibly sexy. ironically, it describes a person who is aware of the damaging dynamics of a relationship with this person who is Dangerous. the speaker knows very well that this is not a good thing for him, but he cannot help himself to want more and more... entirely at his expense.

    it is certainly a sucky situation, but i love this song for it's ability to describe that crazy love/addiction to someone that leads a person to make bad choices for themselves, while draped in incredibly hot sounds and tone. so often, it's that risky arousal that drives us to this level of passionate self-desctruction.

    General Commentone of my friends started singing this song except slower and off key... and then we all got addicted to it
    it's a great song, though, now that I know it.
