Music Monday – 80s Throwback – Obsession by Animotion

08/01/2022     Charli     Meme

This week I’m actually getting off my butt and posting a Music Monday post. Music Monday is a weekly post series started by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek.

This week my song is an oldie but a goodie that my love for was refreshed by the movie Fresh. As a side note, if you haven’t seen Fresh, you really should. It’s amazing. The song for this week is Obsession by Animotion. Check out the official video for the song, courtesy of YouTube:

Lyrics

You are an obsession (you are an obsession)
I cannot sleep (I cannot sleep)
I am a possession (I am your possession)
Unopened at your feet
There’s no balance (there is no balance)
No equality (no equality)
Be still, I will not accept defeat (be still, I will not accept defeat)

I will have you, yes, I will have you
I will find a way, and I will have you
Like a butterfly, a wild butterfly
I will collect you and capture you

You are an obsession, you’re my obsession
Who do you want me to be to make you sleep with me?
You are an obsession, you’re my obsession
Who do you want me to be to make you sleep with me?

I feed you, I drink you by day and by night
I need you, I need you by sun and candlelight
You protest, you want to leave
Stay, oh, there’s no alternative (there’s no alternative)

Your face appears again, I see the future there
But I see danger, stranger beware
Of circumstance in your naked dreams
Your affection is not what it seems

You are an obsession, you’re my obsession
Who do you want me to be to make you sleep with me?
You are an obsession, you’re my obsession
Who do you want me to be to make you sleep with me?

My fantasy has turned to madness (has turned to madness)
And all my goodness (and all my goodness)
Has turned to badness (has turned to badness)
My need to possess you has consumed my soul
My life is trembling, I have no control

I will have you, yes, I will have you
I will find a way, and I will have you
Like a butterfly, a wild butterfly
I will collect you and capture you

You are an obsession, you’re my obsession
Who do you want me to be to make you sleep with me?
You are an obsession, you’re my obsession
Who do you want me to be to make you sleep with me?

You are an obsession, you’re my obsession
Who do you want me to be to make you sleep with me?
You are an obsession, you’re my obsession
Who do you want me to be to make you sleep with me?
You are an obsession

You are an obsession, you’re my obsession
