Track Name: Do What You Want
Can I leave an impression on your skin?
Cause girl, I’ve got an obsession and who knows where it has been
I feel you on my body, light
Can we make it through the night?
Come on closer set me free
Just do what you want to me

You touch me, you taste (oh)
You got my heart racing
You sought me, you got me
Now you set the pace when we’re alone
So don’t let me go

Girl you know that I adore you
And when I feel your touch, oh it makes me so high
Yeah, it makes me so high
Girl you know I’m fighting for you
And when you feel the rush, it’s the time of your life
it’s the time of your…

So should we move slow?
I don’t know
Can you show me just a little bit more of you?
Before you have to let me go (oh)
Do what you what, what you want to my body
Do what you want, if you’re down to get naughty
If you want me to believe
Just do what you want

(Pre-chorus)

(Chorus)

So do what you want, what you want to me baby
Do what you want, cause you’re driving me crazy
Do what you want, but baby don’t let go
Do what you want, cause we’re in control
So go do what you want to me

There’s a time and a place for everything
If a toy’s what you want, come pull my string
If love is in the air, I’ll be your fling
Do what you want to me

Just do what you want to me
So go do what you want to me

(Chorus)

Do what you want, what you want to me baby
Do what you want, cause you’re driving me crazy
Go do what you want to me
Go do what you want to me baby
Track Name: Different People
I’m not saying people change, but people change
I’m saying different people, are different people, to different people
Now baby, I’m not saying you & I
I’m not saying you & I, are different people
But opposites attract
So why don’t you come in closer?

You can stay the night,
Stay as long as you want
Just hold tight, and don’t let go
Stay under the sheets
I’ll give you all that you need
Come on baby; get close to me

And why don’t you
Come make me feel alive again
Come make us feel like more than friends
And I won’t stop if you want to come again
Cause baby, quite frankly
We’re different people
You push away, and I pull you in
Just let me kiss your perfect skin
And I won’t stop if you want to come again
Cause baby, quite frankly
We’re different people

I’m not saying people think, before they speak
I’m saying different people, are different people, to different people
Now baby, I’m not saying that you think
I’m not saying that you think, before you speak
So stick around
So I can show you what I’m made of

(Chorus)

I give everything I’ve got
And you take everything you want

You push; I pull
We’re different people
I give; you take
We’re different people
I bend; you break
We’re different people
We’re different

(Chorus)

We’re different people
And I won’t stop if you want to come again
Cause baby, quite frankly
We’re different people
Track Name: Animal
Your chemical, your chemical reaction
It breathes
A physical, a physical attraction
In me
It’s the language of bodies and breaths
(Going toe to toe)
Laying waste till no body is left
(She’s got a love like woe)

Feel you lying next to me
Passion laced with ecstasy
Ditch the covers; take the lead
You’ve got me hungry for more

Cause the animal inside
It keeps eating me alive
And I hope one day you’ll see
This view from underneath
Cage our bodies, no release
Show your beauty and your beast
And I pray one day you’ll be
A place to sink my teeth
Go on and run
But you can’t hide
From the animal inside

It’s critical your body gets the satisfaction
It needs
A very physical, a physical distraction
Over and over
It’s the language of bodies and breaths
(Going toe to toe)
Laying waste till no body is left
(She’s got a love like woe)

Feel you lying next to me
Passion laced with ecstasy
Don’t be gentle, just release
Your cravings some more

(Chorus)

Don’t take me over
Just pull me under
Don’t take me over
Just put me under your spell
Don’t take me over
Just pull me under
Don’t take me over
Just pull me down

Cause the animal
Animal
Track Name: Poison Ivy
It’s quiet now
And I’ve been locked inside this, quiet house
With these four walls caving in
Bottles drowning out my sin
Tattoos deep within my skin
All this envy sinking in, in, in

Well I think I’m burning up now
Poison ivy’s in my bloodstream
Don’t think I can make it out now
That buzz is driving me insane
Well I think I’m going under
The cheap thrill’s tender to the touch
Poison ivy’s in my bloodstream
Breathe in breathe out
Gentle wicked

Rush rush rush, hush
Breathe in breathe out
Gentle wicked
Rush rush rush, hush
Breathe in breathe out
Gentle wicked

I feel you near
Pull you close, I see you
Crystal clear
Pour a glass and take a sip
Cabaret against my lips
Twisted round my fingertips
Lead me on this ego trip, trip, trip
(And I won’t get out)

(Chorus)

I just want to make it home
Cause I don’t recognize
This reflection from my own
And I’m a victim to your spell
You’ve got me trapped inside
This perfect, little hell

(Chorus)

Rush rush rush, hush
Breathe in breathe out
Gentle wicked
Track Name: Short Story
I see the moon sit
Softly on your fingertips
And I feel your heart beat faster
When you’re pressed against my lips
You can see your body move
Even though you don’t want it to

Girl, don’t you know it’s true
1+1 equals me and you

Somebody, write me a short story symphony
Let’s flip to the ending girl
So you can be with me
Somebody, write me a short story, nice & sweet
Skip all the fluff
Fix it in rough
Just tell it how it’s supposed to be

You feel a cold wind blowing
Sending shivers down your spine
Your mind may say no
But your eyes are saying that you’re mine
(and you’re fine, so fine)
I can see your body move
And now you’re looking like you want it to

(Pre-Chorus)

(Chorus)

I wanna know you
Wanna adore you
You can see your body move
Even though you don’t want it to
Girl, don’t you know it’s true?
Don’t you know it’s true?
I can see your body move
And now you’re looking like you want it to

(Pre-Chorus)

(Chorus)

Just tell it how it’s supposed to be
Track Name: Hearts Go Blind
I can hear you tiptoe
And I love when you move so slow
Your heavy breathing in my ear
Is all I want to hear tonight
Take me to another level
Cause I feel like losing control
These thoughts are clogging up my brain
And I need to be contained
So stop me now, just hold me down

In the day
I see heavy hearts, romances, and shooting stars
By night
I see dimming lights, fantasize, but what is right?
Tell me how to feel tonight
Before our hearts go blind

Before our hearts go blind
Before our hearts go blind
Tell me how to feel tonight
Before our hearts go

I can hear your heartbeat
And it knocks me off of my feet
Without you, all my body aches
But there’s only so much that I can take
Before I need you now
So take me to another level
Cause I feel like losing control
I’m lost in the way your body moves
Lighting fire to my fuse
Don’t stop me now, just hold me down

(Pre-Chorus)

(Chorus)

I know that it’s hard
I know it’s just tearing you apart
I can be your medicine; I can be your gentleman
Say the word, what I might do
Nothing is too far and not too soon
I can be your make believe, maybe more than fantasy
Just tell me how feel tonight

(Chorus)
Track Name: Flawless
Baby, close all the curtains
And shut all the doors
It’s time to get dirty
So show me what I bargained for
Your history shows
All your highs & your lows
So strike a pose, don’t take it slow
And lose the clothes

And this is how the story goes

This is the last night
So hold on tight
And kiss me till I don’t exist
We’re on our backs now
Clear our tracks now
And kiss me where you might have missed
No one needs to know
Where we both have been
Till we both let go
Till we meet again, you’re flawless
You’re dismissed

Girl, I got what you want
And you want what I’ve got
But it isn’t enough
So go flaunt your stuff
You’re a pro when you tease
Bring a man to his knees
We’ve got time to cease
Leave the love at ease
Let me beg you please

Cause this is how the story goes

(Chorus)

No no no no

(Chorus)
Track Name: The Way You Are
Lately I’ve had thoughts stuck in my head
And I’m not good at speaking out
So I put them in a song instead
You take my breath away
Each and every day
Now artificial respiration is the only way
I can say to you

I really think you’re something else
And I’d be lying if I didn’t think
That I wanted you all to myself
Tell me who you really are
When we’re driving in my car
Cause girl you know
Nobody else will do

Cause I see into your heart
And all I see is that
You’re looking for room, for two
And I see into my heart
And I can tell your straight
All that I want is you

This is where I go and tell you

Girl, come a little bit closer
To me
Pack up your smile; just stay a while
Maybe
Oh won’t you come on over?
Baby girl
Just do your thing, but don’t go far
Cause I can’t get enough of
The way you are

Don’t act surprised to see me here
Cause I could look into those hazel eyes
Make the whole world disappear
They say you’re like a rose
And I want to get me one of those
So I can give a dozen back to you

(Pre-Chorus)

Tell you straight, and take it slow
I think I wanna let you know

(Chorus)

I’m addicted to
The way you are

So I’m calling all women
Who might fit this description
Oh these feels I’m depicting
Tell me you’re who I’m picking
Now my curse has been lifted
With this girl, man I’m gifted
And she knows I’ll give her all of my love

(Chorus)

(Chorus)

And I love, and I love the way you are
