"Suffocated Love" as written by Adrian Nicholas Matthew Thaws and Richard Barrett....
It's too good
It's too nice
She makes me finish too quick
Is it love?
No not love
She turns my sexual trick
She says she's mine, I know she lies
First, I scream, then I cry.
Take a second of me
You beckon, I'll be
She suffocates me
She suffocates me with suggestion
I asked 'do you feel the same?'
And later on, maybe
I'll tell you my real name
She's so good, she's so bad
You understand, I can't stand
Now I could just kill a Man
She's on her knees, I say please
I caress her silly lies, she's got brown eyes
I think ahead of you, I think instead of you
Will you spend your life with me
And stifle me?
I know why the caged bird sings, I know why

Forgive and you're forgiven
Kingdom come
Can you wait for yours, I need to taste some
Life's pretty funny, I laugh while she spends my money
She's my freak
I guess I'm weak
You ask what is this?
Mind your business
I pass my idle days with my idle ways
'til the twelfth of always
She walks my hallways
I keep her warm, but we never kiss
She cuts my slender wrists
Let's waste some more time
I sign the dotted line
A different level

You ask what is this?
Mind your business
I pass my idle days with my idle ways
Til the twelfth of always
She walks my hallways
I keep her warm but we never kiss
She says I'm weak and immature
But it's cool
I know what money's for.
Push comes to shove, her tongue's her favorite weapon on attack
I slap her back, she mostly hates me.

Can I take off your clothes
Before we go out
And when you're helpless, I'll scream and shout
We finish everyday
(well, anyway)
Sixty-nine degrees
My head's between your knees.

    General CommentAnother one of Tricky's and Martina's yummy sexual works. The lyrics are great; they portray the blind lust of a one sided relationship, but they both end up getting what they want: Sex and Money. Martina is the dominant character, showing her control over the sex-driven male. I think there's just something about Tricky's voice that just seduces you...maybe it's just his lyrics...=) i dunno

    General CommentOooh, I really like this song. It really gets me in the mood, heh. I can totally relate to it, the lyrics are similar to a situation I'm in right now. They have a really twisted relationship where love's not even a factor, they're just using each other for their own pleasure. Awesome song.

    General CommentIt's about a prostitute and her client, who are both exploiting and entrapping each other in different ways.

    General CommentIt's not about prostitution...it's about trying to define a relationship. Is this only a sexual thing or is this more? "You ask what is this/Mind your business" is her attempting to get more, and him refusing. Tricky is defining the relationship as purely sexual ("Is this love/No not love/She turns my sexual tricks"), but Martina is trying to push for more. At the same time, Martina is questioning her actions, "Will you spend your life with me/And stifle me."

    What a great song.
