Oh yeah

Something's the matter baby, I'm goin' insane
Something inside of me keeps talkin' 2 my brain
Why can't I stop this satanic lust?
I know I shouldn't hold U, but my body says I must

I'm possessed, ooh
And I don't know what 2 do
Ooh, I'm possessed (Oh yes, ooh)
And I'm so crazy n love with U

Something's the matter baby, U're all I see
Ur voice is all I hear beggin' 2 me
I wish I didn't need U, I wish I didn't care
I've got 2 make some love 2 U, it's much 2 much 2 bare

Trippin' off ur love, baby, it's so hard 2 relate
