I’ve been tied up before—my hands behind my back.
I’ve been locked behind closed doors—so sad, but it’s a fact.
But nothing yet has made me wanna scream so loud the windows crack, but here you are.
So the moment you open your mouth,
I’m gonna kiss you—body and soul.
Body and soul, I’m gonna kiss you—
Make you my own.
Though I don’t know what’s come over me,
and I can’t say what the hand will be,
suddenly comes this thief on the rise,
a smooth pick-pocket with an eye on the prize.
So the moment you close your eyes,
I’m gonna steal you—body and soul.
Body and soul, I’m gonna steal you from right under your sweet little nose.
I hope this makes it down into the deepest secret workings of your heart.
That’s where I’ll start.
The moment your heart stops its lies,
you’re gonna find that I make you whole—
Body and soul.
