Lyrics


If you've got love in your sights

Watch out, love bites


When you make love, do you look in the mirror?

Who do you think of, does he look like me?

Do you tell lies and say that it's forever?

Do you think twice, or just touch 'n' see?

Ooh babe ooh yeah


When you're alone, do you let go?

Are you wild 'n' willin' or is it just for show?

Ooh c'mon


I don't wanna touch you too much baby

'Cos making love to you might drive me crazy

I know you think that love is the way you make it

So I don't wanna be there when you decide to break it

No!


Love bites, love bleeds

It's bringin' me to my knees

Love lives, love dies

It's no surprise

Love begs, love pleads

It's what I need


When I'm with you are you somewhere else?

Am I gettin' thru or do you please yourself?

When you wake up will you walk out?

It can't be love if you throw it about

Ooh babe


I don't wanna touch you too much baby

'Cos making love to you might drive me crazy


[Repeat Chorus]


[guitar solo]


Ooh yeah


[Repeat Bridge]


Love bites, love bleeds

It's bringin' me to my knees

Love lives, love dies


[Repeat Chorus]


If you've got love in your sights

Watch out, love bites

Yes it does

It will be hell
