Everyone I know Needs love like drugs Like a common cold We could never shrug. My baby and me We're missing the same stuff We've all got a disease Deficiency of love. We don't know what we're doing We do it again We're just amateur lovers With amateur friends. I can tell you what you're thinking now Before you think that you can settle down. You tried to play it down But it never stuck I tried to bail this town I'm getting no such luck When nobody's around I keep my eyes on the clock There ain't a cure I've found In all my times around this block.
