If there's anything that you want
If there's anything that you need
There's no need to be evasive
Money talks and it's persuasive

Possession
Possession
Possession

Now you're sending me your best wishes
Signed with love and vicious kisses
You lack lust, you're so lacklustre
Is that all the strength you can muster

Possession
Possession
Possession

Even when we are out of touch
Now I know that I've seen too much, seen too much

So I see us lying back to back
My case is closed, my case is packed
I'll get out before the violence
Or the tears or the silence

Possession
Possession
Possession
Possession
Possession
Possession

    General CommentGreat lyrics. Short, succinct and still able to tell a story.

    A sister song to "No Dancing" from MYIT? A bad relationship, based on seeing the other as a possession.
