Make me fumble
Make me fall
Make my heart stop and start
To tremble uncontrollably
Let my eyes see fear make desire
Keep those who long apart
Forbid the kiss
And leave us innocent
Of the things some do in the dark

The things some do in the dark
The things some do in the dark

Make me remember
Make me forget
Make my mind unable
To force the body to do its will
Let it be right for belief and denial
To share a space in the heart and leave us only to imagine
About the things some do in the dark

The things some do in the dark
The things some do in the dark

Make me pretend
Make me expect
Things can go and come to pass
Without trial or tribulation
Let this life space and time
Leave my body with permanent marks
Faded scars and lines
But not a single impression
Of the things some do in the dark

The things some do in the dark
The things some do in the dark

Let me be tempted
Let me be torn
But make my thoughts pure and not
Morally corrupt in form
Let us sleep tonight
Let innocence lie in our dreams and secret hearts
With burning desire
A need to know and do
The things some do in the dark

The things some do in the dark
The things some do in the dark

gave me the shivers actually. Tracy is supercool. :cool:
I\'m in the dark as to why anyone would like this.
Tracy Chapman\'s never been my cup o\' tea. She\'s soulful alright, but her voice (and the unending vibrato) just doesn\'t appeal to me. This song is particularly annoying to me due to the (electronic?) bass drum panned all the way over to the right side. (I listen to RP at work with headphones, so stereo separation issues stand out.)

Anything from soulful Tracy Chapman- mmm mmm good.
This song should not be played.
This song does what she wants it to do, but it\'s not my favorite thing to listen to. It\'s a little too creepy for my taste.
R&B, with all the suck removed :p
another great work in her solid body of quality work.
soul filled turn from her normal. Very good.
What a haunting, lovely song, I dson;t like everything Chapman does, but she does seem to stick to pretty quality music.

Wow. DIfferent from what I\'m used to in Chapman\'s work. I like it -- works for me.
