Written by Paul Walker & Karen Pfeiffer. An extraordinarily different song for us. Imagining a love affair involving a 'man eating' woman. It was fun to write something a little on the dark side.

Lyrics

The Fox
(Paul Walker & Karen Pfeiffer)

You come on to me with a smile that is sweet
And a goal that you’re out to fulfill
But I know all about you & the way that you work
Like a fox with a taste for the kill

And if you can get just a sniff of your prey
Just an inkling you might realise the thrill
If you feel there’s a chance you could squeeze through the wire
If you can then you probably will

Chorus:
But don’t think you’ll be doing that to me
I’m not such a fool as you think
I could end it right now
It would all be forgotten
Just go, leave your cup in the sink

There’s a tale going round of a love that you found
With a good but a vulnerable heart
And when he thought it was right
You just turned out the light
And left him for dead & the dark

Chorus:
Don’t think you’ll be doing that to me
You’ll be biting off more than you can chew
Cause if you think I’m the same
As the others you’ve claimed
There’s a big surprise coming to you

You think I can’t see how you’re looking at me
You feel undetected for now
But the glow from the hearth lights the shape of your hand
And that now famous curl of your mouth

Chorus:
Don’t think you’ll be doing that to me
You mistake me for somebody else
But there’s things you don’t know
That I’m not bout to tell you
That’s I’m saving for someone who cares

But don’t think you’ll be doing that to me
You’ll be way down the road ‘fore it hits
Guess I’ll miss your caress
The way you undress
And okay, I loved you a bit
