Touch without seeing, love with no feeling
Stealing a moment under cover of darkness

I'd like to kiss you, let my lips caress you
Sending sparks of passion up your spine
But doing so means saying, "No" and even the thought would be a crime
I like to touch your skin, even if it is a sin
I'd rather burn than not touch you
I might just go mad, thinking what I might have had
And all the things I'd like to do
Safer seduction isn't what it is
Sexuality isn't what it appears to be
It's what you think you see

(You know, you're gonna pay for your sins) I want to make you hot
Touch that spot and send you on a trip
But my consequence is abstinence
And lord knows I just can't slip (You know what I'm talking about)
I want to feel you, the real you
Not the projection that you let me see
The safest sex is when it's not skin to skin
It's very simple, let your mind go free
Safer seduction isn't what it is (We don't care)
Sexuality isn't what it appears to be
It's what you think you see
"To do or not to do?" that is the question
Over and over, you're prone to suggestion
Attempt is what I can't condone
The fact that you want to make your bed my home
Let's say I take this man as my lover
And he swears that there will never be another
But really he doesn't give a damn about safe sex
And with all these other girls he has a taste test
Well the thrill doesn't outweigh the consequences
Therefore I am using my common senses to let you know I adore you
But I'm afraid I'm not the one for you

Safer seduction isn't what it is
Sexuality isn't what it appears to be
It's what you think you see
Safer seduction isn't what it is
Sexuality isn't what it appears to be
Ain't what it used to be
(You know you're in a mess)
