Overview

"Love Explosion" was originally titled "Do You Want Me To Stay?", and featured slightly different lyrics, as heard in the SnS Demos. The song underwent multiple lyrical revisions over the course of its history, with the last demo version released to fans in January of 2002, before appearing on Maladroit with lyrics more akin to the original SnS Demo.

Lyrics

Album version

Take a listen around you
All the people that crowd around in your house
They've been wanting to kill you in your sleep

Take a load off and bow down
To the others who love to call you their names
They've been wanting to kill you in your sleep

And all the bull that people sling (Love is an ocean)
It doesn't matter what they sing (Love explosion)

So jump out, jump out, get your groove on
This one is for you, so come on
Get out your house, girl, and give me a kiss

Take a load off and bow down
To the others who love to call you their names
They love to call you their names

"Do You Want Me To Stay?" (SnS Demo, 09-06-01)

Take a listen around you
All the people that crowd around in your house
They've been wanting to kill you in your sleep

Take a listen around you
All the people that love to call you their names
They've been wanting to kill you in your sleep

And all the games that people play
It does not matter what they say

So jump back, jump back, do you want me?
I don't believe that you need me
Come out, come on, do you want me to stay?
Hey

Take a listen around you
All the people that crowd around in your house
They crowd around in your house

Maladroit Demos; Jan 8, Jan 9, Jan 10

Ooooh

Little girlie, I'm happy
'Cuz you came out and saw the things that I see
Now we'll get on to pleasure each other, yeah

Perpetrator of good vibes
In a world where nobody's kind to themselves
Now I've found you, we'll both give up the love

And all the bull that people sling, yeah
Falls beneath the songs we sing
So jump out, jump out, get your groove on
This song is for you, so come on
Get out the house, girl, and give me a kiss
Yes

Perpetrator of good vibes
In a world where nobody's kind to themselves
Nobody's kind to themselves

Yeah
