Tell me what's the use
Of a twenty-four inch waist
If you don't touch me?

Tell me what's the use again
Of being on TV everyday
If you don't watch me?

This house is full of emptiness
My closet's full of dresses that I'll never wear
My life is full of people
But you're my only friend, and my best friend

Hope it isn't too late to say I love you
Hope it isn't too late to say
That without you this place looks like London, it rains everyday
Don't you know it babe, I'm only half a body
Without your embrace

Let me tell you what
My heart is an unfurnished room
Any suggestions?
Don't have to tell you more than that
'Cause no one knows me like you do
Without exception

This house is full of emptiness
My closet's full of dresses that I'll never wear
My life is full of people
But you're my only friend and my best friend

Hope it isn't too late to say I love you
Hope it isn't too late to say 
That without you this place looks like London, it rains everyday
Don't you know it babe, I'm only half a body
Without your embrace

Hope it isn't too late to say I love you
Hope it isn't too late to say
That without you this place looks like London, it rains everyday

Don't you know it, babe, I'm only half a body
Without your embrace
