Haa
Touch without seein', love with no feelin'
Stealin' a moment, under cover of darkness

I'd like to kiss you, let my lips caress you
Sending sparks of passion up your spine
But doin' so means sayin' no
And even the thought would be a crime

I like to touch your skin, even if it is a sin
I'd rather burn than not touch you
I might just go mad, thinkin' what I might have had
All the things I'd like to do

Safe seduction, isn't what it is
Sexuality, isn't what it appears to be
It's what you think you see

(You know you can't do without)
I wanna make you hot
Touch that spot and send you on a trip
But my consequences, abstinence and
Lord knows I just can't sleep
(You know what I'm talkin' about)

I wanna feel you, the real you
Not the projection that you let me see
The safest sex is when it's not skin to skin
It's very simple let your mind go free

Safe seduction, isn't what it is, auh
Sexuality, isn't what it appears to be
It's what you think you see

To do or not to do that is the question
Over and over you're prone suggestion
Some senses when I can't condone the fact
That you wanna make your bed my home
Let's say I take this man as my lover
And he swears that there will never be another
But really he doesn't give a damn about safe sex
And with all these other girls he has a taste test
Well the thrill doesn't outweigh the consequences
Therefore I am usin' my common senses
To let you know I adore you
But I'm afraid I'm not the one for you

Ahh, yea, ooh
Ha,ha,ha

Safe seduction, isn't what it is
Sexuality, isn't what it appears to be
It's what you think you see

Safe seduction, isn't what it is
Sexuality, isn't what it appears to be
Ain't what it appears to be
(You know you wanna mess)
