Track Name: Everybody Wants You
Everybody wants you but I'm the one who's takin' you home
Knew it from the minute our eyes met from across the room
All thrust and parry, all pretense of resistance, will be just formalities
Lips will mingle, limbs entangle, forces lead us inexorably

Everybody's watchin' our story of seduction unfold
Every little signal from the tender to the tempting to the bold
Here on the dance floor we're makin' love, standing up, with all our clothes on
Think this is delicious, just you wait til I get you alone

I've seen you cast a net of allure that no one can slip through
Gather them in, throw them back one by one
Who's it gonna be tonight
Everybody wants you, that's what gives you the right
Ain't that right

Everybody's wishin' I'd vanish into thin air
Give the other girl -- or guy -- a chance
I ain't goin' nowhere
This is my once in a lifetime, planets have aligned as they were meant to do
You're the one I've waited for cuz, baby... everybody wants me, too

This is my once in a lifetime, planets have aligned as they were meant to do
You're the one I've waited for cuz, baby... everybody wants me, too

Everybody wants you but I'm the one who's takin' you home
Everybody wants you but I'm the one who's takin' you home
Everybody wants you but I'm the one who's takin' you home
Takin' you home... takin' you home...
Track Name: Cinderella Hellfire
Cinderella Hellfire came from the shabby part of town
nobody was the wiser when she wore that borrowed gown
She saw the prince was smitten with her
It was no accident she left behind the slipper

Yeah cause Cinderella Hellfire she wasn't raised on fairy tales
Carnival, palace hall, some principles prevail
At the stroke she bolted out the door
for she'd been taught
Always leave 'em wanting more

And cause she knew she wouldn't wait long for the other shoe to drop
A man who's never been denied is impossible to stop
Oh she was coy when he came knockin'
As she shyly slid her skirt to show her stockin'

You know I hate like hell to tell ya her little spell turned to a curse
Got just what she wished for and found that nothing could be worse
Seems the prince had failed to mention
The pedestal would double as a prison

Come on now smile and look lovely that's all we require
But she wants to be known now, not just admired

Cinderella Hellfire she burned the castle to the ground
Lived out her days in exile selling the jewels from her crown
She was a desperate woman and a crook
Not the precious little paper doll from your storybook
