There's a girl in my office
She keeps on stopping

That I'm diving inside without making a try

Why oh, well I only want to be wanted
There's a girl in my dreams
Working nights on my scenes
Till she has me in little bits

There's a time and a place
But it moves at a pace
And I can't seem to keep in time

There's a word for the way
But no words can I say
So a lonely man I stay

Why should it be
I confess that it's hard
Turning hopes into dreams but
Why did I see
You cocoon yourself nights
Finding soup in your flies

Oh, I only to be wanted
Why should it be
That my heart's under lock
And I can't find the key
Tell me, why should it seem
That I'm diving inside without making a try

Why oh, well I only want to be wanted
