I need something, I need some sweet thing
I need something to help me get on, help me get on by
Love thing
Sometimes I feel like I've been trapped in a container
Pushed through a strainer, but I ain't no complainer
Think I'm going crazy, there, now I'm insaner
What could be plainer, it's a no-brainer
The truth is always wherever you find it
Throw back the curtain, see what's behind it
Look hard at life and the ties that bind it
Day after day we must be reminded
Everything I had is gone, it's so dark it must be dawn
Where's that reason to go, reason to go on and on
Give what you ain't got to give, Lord have mercy on me
Drinkin' up blood and sweat and tears, I ain't afraid to ask
Give it to me love thing, well being
Why do I always look down when I want to look up
Why do I shake somebody down when I'm feelin' shook up
Why do I wander around when I want to hook up
Why am I puttin' it down when I want to pick up
One of these days I'm gonna make my decision
And act upon it while I still got volition
But I've got so many ideas in collision
It makes it hard to be a man with a mission
I need something, I need some sweet thing
I need something to help me get on, help me get on by
I need something to clear my head
I need something to warm my bed
I need something, some sweet thing
Everything I had is gone, it's so dark it must be dawn
Where's that reason to go, reason to go on and on
Tell me lies, I know the truth but tell me lies
Just like a breath of fresh air blowin' through my lonely spirit
Love thing, well being
Love thing
