Is it a sickness or is it a story How I scribble in my little book I write every word in the language of nerves And I dare you to look Yes I’ll let you read me I’ll keep nothing secret But all my love letters are forged Don’t wait any longer let’s find out what’s stronger My pen or your sword Chorus: Who is the demon? Who is the liar? Who the human being? My heart’s on fire To whom am I faithful? To what aspire? Who is the dreamer? What’s my desire? In our heat of passion I distill the poison Come taste it it clings to my lips I burn with desire as destructive as fire I’m a weapon a witch Suffer so sweetly your jealousy feeds me I am your enemy in this war Husband or lover there’s always another I’m waiting for (Chorus) Oh I’m wild, wild, wild Eyes all over my skin I’m going to hell, to hell, to hell Woman, woman, woman Yes I’m wild, wild, wild Eyes all over my skin I’m going to hell, to hell, to hell Woman, woman, woman, woman, woman (Chorus) Is it a sickness or is it a story How I hunger for so many more I lie and deceive but you have to believe me I’m eternally yours

Be My Man 03:31
We don’t talk about it We just let it loom Could call it the elephant In the corner of the room Standing at a crossroads Need to make a call Do we stand together Or divided do we fall? Look into my eyes love Take me by the hand Give it to me honestly Tell it to me true What do you want to do And do you want to be my man? Chorus: If you’re not gonna be my man I don’t know how I’m gonna stand it Every corner of this land Will be so desolate and barren And all the comforts that I know No they will not help me no If I’m abandoned By you baby be my man We don't talk about it Unless it's in disguise Only every look at it Out of the corners of our eyes Look into my eyes love We could make a plan We could make some promises Tell each other true What do you want to do And do you want to be my man? (Chorus) I dreamed that we were walking Through the city past apartments That belonged to you The world around us changed With every step we took I wondered how we'd make it through I told you that I understood I needed to go with you When you went away The still point that you made became The one place where I knew that I was Meant to stay (Chorus)

Isabella Rosselini shot me in the heart With her cupid’s bow and arrow like a froggy poison dart And her teachers of seduction were the creatures of the sea Yeah I was no match for nature when she cast her spell on me And she wrapped ten arms around me in a passionate embrace And she kissed me with that lipstick and a smile upon her face Is she gonna be my lover is she gonna be my friend Will she stay with me forever what I want to know is When will you love me Isabella Rosselini When will you love me Isabella Rosselini Catch me with a net Catch me with a hook Catch me in the kitchen with your dirty little book Put me in a dish Fry me in a pan Eat me if you’re hungry yeah but tell me honey When will you love me Isabella Rosselini When will you love me Isabella Rosselini Isabella Rossellini set my heart astir With her beautiful complexion and her luminescent lure Like a limpet or a shrimp I’d change from boy into a girl I’d slip out of all my armor for a minute more with her Like a starfish gone to pieces I’m beside myself with joy At the thought of Isabella she could treat me like her toy I would climb up any barnacle and climb back down again I would do her every bidding what I want to know is When will you love me Isabella Rossellini When will you love me Isabella Rossellini Love me in the morning Love me in the night Love me when you’re ugly underwater with a light Love me in the deep Love me when it’s bright Love me till you start to lose your appetite When will you love me Isabella Rossellini

"...thrilling to hear the lush, big sound she gets with her band on the CD, with strings, horns and keyboards...the connecting center is the girlish but smoldering voice of the Soubrette herself." -Travalanche
