about

A lovely man I met who was in the Venus, or love position, in a system of interpreting relationships using playing cards.

lyrics

Chorus:
You’re VENUS TO ME, VENUS TO ME
You brought my heart out to play
When I’d been keepin’ it away
So carefully
Dangerous, dangerous
Potentially dangerous sensually
You’re VENUS TO ME
VENUS TO ME

You’re in and you’re out
You’re here and you’re not
In town for the day, tomorrow en route
A definite chapter in what life’s about
I can’t wait to see how the book will turn out

CHORUS

I’m high and I’m low
You come and you go
I’m melting with yeses; you’re hardened with no
It’s courting destruction I’d better go slow
The harvest is heartache, you reap what you sow

CHORUS

Bridge:
Venus, Venus, you’re so appealing
Sending me off, senses reeling
Scraping me off, off the ceiling
Crashing me back to the ground

I like what I see
When you look at me
Until you must tell me that you are not free
Magnetically speaking we start to agree
And nothing else matters on earth or on sea

CHORUS
