        Great album with one of my favorites, Romantic Voyage. Absolutely loved the Fantastico 8 performance of this. A very meditative quality to it. Also love Under The influence and that amazing video as well. The whole album is just excellent.

          Faraway Eyes is another favorite of mine. It was released on the Action Jackson soundtrack, and it was supposed to released on her third unreleased solo album Cherry Bomb, along with the amazing cover of Nature Boy from the Friday the 13th the series Mesmer’s Bauble episode.  It would have been an amazing album as well.

            Album: Skin On Skin
            Song: Under The Influence
            Lyrics below:

            Some habits are too hard to break
            You give in, then you’re hooked on what you take
            Why don’t you come close, I need an overdose

            Because you’ve got me
            You got me, Under The Influence
            Of a four-letter word on my mind
            You got me, Under The Influence
            And I’ll do anything anytime

            My empty nights, you fill them up
            I don’t know when, to say I’ve had enough
            Intoxicate me, with every kiss you’ve got
            I know I must be

            I must be Under The Influence
            Of a four-letter word on my mind
            You got me, Under The Influence
            And I’ll do anything anytime

            I must be, Under The Influence
            Of a love that is sweeter than wine
            You got me, Under The Influence
            And my willpower’s so hard to find

            I must be, Under The Influence
            Of a four-letter word on my mind
            You got me, Under The Influence
            And I’ll do anything anytime

            I must be, Under The Influence
            Of a love that gets sweeter than wine
            You got me, Under The Influence
            And my willpower’s so hard to find
            (Repeat 1st chorus until fade)

              Album: Skin On Skin
              Song: Manhunt
              Lyrics below:

              M-M-M-M-M-Manhut

              Let the hunt begin!

              Out in the wild and dressed for the kill
              The natives are restless tonight.
              Stalking some prey, a savage untamed
              To satisfy my appetite.
              Lions and tigers all run with our own.
              They’re not the species that I’m looking for.

              (I’m on a manhunt)
              A manhunt
              (A manhunt)
              Like a cannibal I’ll track you down.
              (I’m on a manhunt)
              A manhunt
              (A manhunt)
              And when I catch you we’ll monkey around.

              Setting a trap for the final attack
              Missionary mombo in mind.
              Locked in a cage for passionate play
              You’ve got to be cruel to be kind.
              I just can’t wait ’til I get you at home
              I can hardly wait
              I’ll mount your tropy in my favorite room.

              (I’m on a manhunt)
              A manhunt
              (A manhunt)
              Like a cannibal I’ll track you down.
              (I’m on a manhunt)
              A manhunt
              (A manhunt)
              And when I catch you we’ll monkey around.

              I’m looking for a man, tall, dark and handsome
              That I can do with whatever I wanted.
              I won’t be satisfied ’til he’s roped and tied
              And I’ve had something I can sink my teeth into.

              Out in the wild and dressed for the kill
              Missionary mombo in mind.
              Stalking my prey to capture and cage
              To satisfy my appetite.
              You’ll be my Tarzan and I’ll be your Jane.
              I’ll set you free and we’ll do it again.
              (Again and again and again)

              (I’m on a manhunt)
              A manhunt
              (A manhunt)
              Like a cannibal I’ll track you down.
              (I’m on a manhunt)
              A manhunt
              (A manhunt)
              And when I catch you we’ll monkey around.

              (I’m on a manhunt)
              A manhunt
              (A manhunt)
              Like a cannibal I’ll track you down.
              (I’m on a manhunt)
              A manhunt
              (A manhunt)
              And when I catch you we’ll monkey around.

                It’s really hard finding lyrics to Vanity’s Skin On Skin album. I actually played and replayed Romantic Voyage (I really like that song) to get the lyrics because I had a hard time finding. Sheesh!

                  (Romantic)

                  Lying here alone with you
                  I can’t resist when I look into your eyes
                  So Let’s uncover the mystery
                  And ride along on the open sea all night

                  (I can ride all night)

                  I’ll take you on romantic voyage

                  (so romantic)

                  Into the night romantic voyage

                  Close your eyes and we’ll sail away
                  To a secret hideaway tonight

                  (tonight)

                  Cause I’ve been saving my love for you
                  So hold me tight and we’ll rendezvous you and I

                  (all night)

                  I’ll take you on romantic voyage

                  (run away)

                  All through the night romantic voyage

                  (sail away)

                  Take me far far away
                  Ooh Take me baby

                  Make a wish upon a falling star
                  And the hopes and dreams within our hearts
                  Will make our fantasy for love come true

                  We’ll sail upon on romantic voyage
                  Into the night romantic voyage
                  Romantic voyage
                  All through the night

                  (Ah yeah, ooooo)

                      [Verse One:]
                      You’re always surrounded
                      Camouflage
                      Is there some way of seeing you
                      Without your entourage
                      I leave you a message
                      I do my best
                      To tell you how I feel for you
                      In fifteen words or less

                      Can’t you see we need some time alone
                      Some close communication
                      I never get you to myself

                       

                      [Chorus:]
                      Confidential
                      Like I feel
                      Confidential
                      We need to be
                      Confidential
                      Oh, just you and me
                      Here tonight

                       

                      [Verse Two:]
                      Midnight emotions
                      Just surging yea
                      We’re just about to sort them out
                      When the phone begins to ring
                      I’m getting impatient
                      Ooh, so upset
                      What I had planned to say to you
                      I’m starting to forget

                       

                      Can’t you see we need some time alone
                      Some close communication
                      I never get you to myself

                       

                      [Chorus:]
                      Confidential
                      What I feel
                      Confidential
                      We need to be
                      Confidential
                      Oh, just you and me
                      Yeah tonight

                       

                      [Repeat Chorus:]

                      Confidential
                      Oh, can’t you see
                      Confidential
                      Some privacy
                      Confidential
                      Yeah, just you and me
                      Would be so nice

                      [Bridge:]
                      Confidential
                      Would be so nice
                      Confidential

                      Will be so nice

                      Confidential

                      Would be so nice

                      Confidential

                       

                      Can’t you see we need some time alone
                      Some close communication
                      I never get you to myself

                       

                      [Chorus:]

                      Confidential
                      ooh I need, oh I need
                      Confidential
                      We need to be

                      Confidential
                      Can’t you see what I need
                      Confidential
                      Can’t you see
                      Confidential
                      Ooh just you and me
                      Yeah tonight

                      All alone, all alone
                      Confidential
                      No telephone
                      Confidential
                      Would be so nice

                        Song: Skin On Skin
                        Lyrics below:

                         

                        [Verse 1:]
                        (Ooh, ahh)
                        Pressing on the side of your arm with the palm of my hand
                        Checking out the sights when you’re out there, you must understand
                        Following the trail where it leads when the need’s just as strong
                        Dancing just a little too close, just a little too long

                        [Chorus 1:]
                        Clinging to your body
                        Moving to your rhythm
                        Loving how it’s feeling here in your arms
                        Ooh, feeling the touch of skin on skin

                        [Verse 2:]
                        Reaching for the warmth of your hand in the cool of the night (ooh, ahh)
                        Knowing that it can’t be all wrong when it feels so right (ooh, la, la, la)
                        Holding onto love with a passion that no lover quits (ooh, la, la, la, la, la)
                        Anyone can see, this is you, this is me, this is it (ooh, la, la)

                        [Chorus 1:]
                        Clinging to your body
                        Moving to your rhythm
                        Loving how it’s feeling here in your arms
                        Ooh, feeling the touch of skin on skin (ooh, la, la, la, la, la, la, la)

                        [Chorus 2:]
                        Raging like a river
                        Ooh, i start to shiver
                        Loving how it’s feeling here in the night
                        Ooh, feeling the touch of skin on skin
                        (ooh, la, la, la, la, la, ooh, feeling the touch of skin on skin, skin on skin)

                        Oh, oh
                        Oh, oh
                        Oh, oh, oh, oh

                        Oh, oh
                        Oh, oh, ooh
                        Oh, oh

                        [Chorus 1:]
                        Clinging to your body
                        Moving to your rhythm
                        Loving how it’s feeling here in your arms
                        Ooh, feeling the touch of skin on skin (ooh, la, la, la, la, la, la, la)

                        [Chorus 2:]
                        Raging like a river
                        Ooh, I start to shiver
                        Loving how it’s feeling here in the night
                        Ooh, feeling the touch of skin on skin

                        Clinging, ooh, moving, ooh
                        Ooh, loving to loving
                        Feeling the touch of skin on skin

                        Skin on my skin, baby
                        Ooh
                        Skin on my skin

                        Skin on my skin, baby
                        Ooh, ooh
                        Skin on my skin

                        [Background vocals repeat until fade:]
                        Skin on my skin, baby
                        Skin on my skin

                         

                        [Spoken over background vocals:]
                        Put your skin
                        Right there, touching me, c’mon
                        Put your skin
                        Touching me
                        Real, real close
                        Put your skin…
                        Put your skin…
                        Come on, put your skin…
                        Yeah, come on, put your skin…
                        Put your skin, real close
                        Put your skin on my skin
                        Put your skin on my skin (yeah, yeah)

                          [Spoken:]
                          Good morning class
                          Good morning!
                          Now, today we’re gonna talk about the facts of life
                          Boys and girls?
                          A! N! I! M! A! L! S!

                          [Verse One:]
                          Sexual education
                          The little birds and bees
                          Set your imagination
                          About our anatomy
                          You and I together, are beauty and the beast
                          A natural stimulation about curiosity
                          Our hearts beat like the rhythm of a drum
                          This jungle instinct is inside of everyone

                          [Chorus:]
                          We’re like animals
                          When we make love
                          Like animals, we just can’t get enough
                          We’re like animals
                          When we make love
                          We’re like animals, there ain’t no stoppin’ us (ah, oh!)
                          You know we’re just like animals
                          When we make love

                          [Verse Two:]
                          Primitive conditions
                          Creatures on all fours
                          Freaky dispositions
                          Have us on the floor
                          A physical safari
                          When I hear your mating call
                          Peculiar positions
                          Make me scream for more
                          Our hearts beat like the rhythm of the drum
                          This jungle instinct is inside everyone

                          [Chorus:]
                          We’re like animals
                          When we make love
                          Like animals, we just can’t get enough
                          We’re like animals
                          When we make love
                          We’re like animals, there ain’t no stoppin’ us (yeah, yeah, yeah)
                          You know we’re just like animals
                          When we make love

                          A! N! I! M! A! L! S!

                          You know we’re just like animals

                          Our hearts beat like the rhythm of a drum
                          This jungle instinct is inside everyone

                          [Chorus:]
                          We’re like animals
                          When we make love
                          Like animals, we just can’t get enough
                          We’re like animals
                          When we make love
                          We’re like animals, there ain’t no stoppin’ us (no, no)
                          You know we’re just like animals
                          You know we’re just like animals
                          You know we’re just like animals, cannibals!

                          We’re like animals
                          When we make love (ooh, ooh, ooh)
