The world was on fire and no one could save me but you. It’s strange what desire will make foolish people do. I never dreamed that I’d meet somebody like you. And I never dreamed that I’d lose somebody like you.
Taken from the song Wicked Game by Californian singer Chris Isaak from his third album Heart Shaped World (1989). The music video famously featured Isaak and supermodel Helena Christensen frolicking naked.
I cannot help it I couldn’t stop it if I tried The same old heartbeat fills the emptiness I have inside And I’ve heard that you can’t fight love, so I won’t complain ‘Cause why would I stop the fire that keeps me going on?
Taken from the song ‘I’d rather be in love’ by Michelle Branch from the album The Spirit Room (2001)
