Got Me Good

lyrics

Verse: I heard someone ring the bell and my heart skipped a beat/ I knew she was coming for me
I tried so hard to stay so strong but I couldn't stay that way too long
Because my hands that give just don't know how to stay that cold
So I better pack up and steal away before I fold

Chorus: Someone told me once that once you take love's hand/ You will never return to the way that you were
I am under her spell, never again/ Will my heart be a stone, even when I'm alone
Love got me good, love got me good

Verse: She always leaves me something at the door/ when I'm not home or I'm alone
And what awaits me in that deadly treat at my feet/ It chills me to the bone
Because my heart that yearns just refuses to stay at bay/ So I bring her little potion to my lips and eagerly drink away, drink away

Chorus

Pre-Chorus: She comes and goes when she fancies, nevermind whether I'm ready/ Never hesitates to go or stay

Chorus

...Love got me good, love got me good, oooh...
