Kiss me and I’ll tell you
What you’re made of
What you’re doing with your choices
When my shirt’s off
You know you’re strength is underneath
‘But you’ll always keep the peace
You’re never out there on a limb

And you’re feet don’t move
And you won’t lift a finger
So you can’t run circles ‘round me now
Coz if you’re feet don’t move
And you won’t life a finger
I can’t keep telling you how it goes…

So give me what I need
Give me what I need
And you’ll see
The best that all of this could be
If you give me what I need
I’ll never ask again
Coz by then you’ll see
You’re happier with me
When you give me what I need

Hold me more closely
Closer than you can
Don’t make me have to make you understand
How much I need you
To adore me
Oh don’t ignore me
Coz you’ll only bring us down
