LyricsEdit

If you've got love in your sights
Watch out, love bites
When you make love
Do you look in your mirror?
Who do you think of?
Does he look like me?
Do you tell lies?
And say that it's forever?
Do you think twice
Or just touch and see?
Ooh, babe
Ooh, yeah
When you're alone, do you let go?
Are you wild and willing or is it just for show?
Ooh, come on
I don't want to touch you too much baby
Because making love to you might drive me crazy
I know you think that love is the way you make it
So I don't want to be there when you decide to break it, no
(Love bites, love bleeds)
It's bringing me to my knees
(Love lives, love dies)
It's no surprise
(Love begs, love pleads)
It's what I need
When I'm with you are you somewhere else?
Am I getting through or do you please yourself?
When you wake up will you walk out?
It can't be love if you throw it about
Ooh babe, I don't want to touch you too much baby
Because making love to you might drive me crazy, oh
(Love bites, love bleeds)
It's bringing me to my knees
(Love lives, love dies)
It's no surprise
Love begs, love pleads
It's what I need
Oh yeah, I don't want to touch you too much baby
Because making love to you might drive me crazy
I know you think that love is the way you make it
So I don't want to be there when you decide to break it, no
(Love bites, love bleeds)
It's bringing me to my knees
(Love lives, love dies)
No, (Love bites, love bleeds)
It's bringing me to my knees
(Love lives, love dies)
It's no surprise
Love begs, love pleads
It's what I need
If you've got love in your sights
Watch out, love bites
