She was a Jezebel, this Brixton queen
Livin' her life like a bad sweet dream
Tellin' me lies when the truth was clear
I think she knew what I wanted to hear

Spinnin' around like a wheel on fire
Walkin' the tightrope on love's highwire
A fatal attraction is where I'm at
There's no escapin' me

I just wanna be close to you
And do all the things you want me to
I just wanna be close to you
And show you the way I feel

I feel love
When I'm lying in the midnight hour
Holding you just like a dream
Love is never what it seems

When we touch
And you're holdin' me the way you feel
Girl, you make my dreams come true
You make my dreams come true

I just wanna be close to you
And do all the things you want me to
I just wanna be close to you
And show you the way I feel

She was a Gemini on the cusp of Mars
She holds me back but she goes too far
Windin' me up just to let me down
So emotional gagged and bound

There's more to this than meets the eye
A devil woman locked inside
With the formal risin' I was scared
I think I was possessed

I just wanna be close to you
And do all the things you want me to
I just wanna be close to you
And show you the way I feel

I feel love
Everytime your body's next to mine
Somethin' deep inside of me
Wants to love you endlessly

When we touch
Girl, you don't know how it makes me feel
I just can't believe it's real
I can't believe it's real

I just wanna be close to you
And do all the things you want me to
I just wanna be close to you
And show you the way I feel

She had an attitude I can't explain
You never know if you're in flame
Tying me up with elastic words
I'm on a countdown till I get hurt

Her blood was hot she burned so bright
A neon sign there in the night
It's hard to say if I went too far
My heart still bears a scar

I just wanna be close to you
I just wanna be close to you
I just wanna be close to you

She was a Jezebel, this Brixton queen
Livin' her life like a bad sweet dream
Tellin' me lies when the truth was clear
I think she knew what I wanted to hear

Spinnin' around like a wheel on fire
Walkin' the tightrope on love's highwire
A fatal attraction is where I'm at
There's no escapin' me

I wanna be close to you
And do all the things you want me to
I just wanna be close to you
And show you the way I feel

I just wanna be close to you
And do all the things you want me to
I just wanna be close to you
And show you the way I feel
