"I Want You" as written by Andy King, Steve Jones, Maz Woolridge and Dean Gifford....
Anytime I need to see your face I just close my eyes
And I am taken to a place
Where your crystal minds and magenta feelings
Take up shelter in the base of my spine
Sweet like a chica cherry cola
I don't need to try to explain
I just hold on tight and If it happens again
I may move so slightly to the arms
And the lips and the face
Of The Human Cannonball that
I need to I want to

Come stand a little bit closer
Breathe in and get a bit higher
You'll never know what hit you when
I get to you

Ooh I want you, I don't know if I need you but
Ooh I'd die to find out
Ooh I want you, I don't know if I need you but
Ooh I'd die to find out

I'm the kind of person who endorses a deep commitment
Getting comfy getting perfect is what I live for
But a look and then a smell of perfume
It's like I'm down on the floor
And I don't know what I'm in for
Conversation has a time and place in the interaction
Of a lover and a mate but the time of talking
Using symbols, using words can be likened
To a deep sea diver who is swimming with a raincoat

Come stand a little bit closer
Breathe in and get a bit higher
You'll never know what hit you when
I get to you

Ooh I want you, I don't know if I need you but
Ooh I'd die to find out
Ooh I want you, I don't know if I need you but
Ooh I'd die to find out

Ooh, ah
Ooh, ah

Anytime I need to see your face I just close my eyes
And I am taken to a place
Where your crystal minds and magenta feelings
Take up shelter in the base of my spine
Sweet like a chica cherry cola
I don't need to try to explain
I just hold on tight and If it happens again
I may move so slightly to the arms
And the lips and the face
Of The Human Cannonball that
I need to I want to

    General CommentOn a side note...I first fell in love with this song at the age of 13, when I could only sing along and pretend like holy hell I knew what all those sexual innuendos were about. However, once you get a little older and you go into a serious relationship (or after you actually have sex for the first time, lol) it can take on a different meaning.

    At that point, it becomes less about fantasizing and dreaming, and more about having this insane, inexplicable passion for someone that all you can do is think of them and want them. Regardless of whether or not that's person is good for you or if you "need them", you still feel like you'll go crazy if you don't have them.

    This song, after sooo many years, still makes me feel like a giddy school girl...only now it's much more naughty than it was back in the day. ;)

    General CommentThis song is near impossible to sing along with. You have to be able to spit out words at a blinding speed. But I like it!
