I've got this feelin' that won't subside.

Darlin' tonight.
Now I've got you in my sights.

Slowly she turned in a circle, never stopping her movements to the music. Her gaze scanned the crowd around the club, flitting from person to person as she tried to assess who was devouring her with their eyes.

With these hungry eyes
One look at you and I can't disguise,

I feel the magic between you and I.

The kiss deepened as the world shook, light and darkness balancing perfectly.

The heavens sighed.

I've got hungry eyes
One look at you and I can't disguise,
I've got hungry eyes
I feel the magic between you and I.

I've got hungry eyes
Now I've got you in my sites,
With my hungry eyes
Did I take you by surprise?
With my hungry eyes

I need you...
