I've got this thing hanging around in my head,
it's a thought about you.
I've got this thing that keeps me awake in bed,
it's the thought of living without you.

Remember when - but then again,
it feels too personal to even sing about.
I dread the day you go away.
I'd love to go, but, you know,
I'm stubborn as a mule knee-deep in quicksand.

I don't know why I can't get myself enough of you,
but, baby, I can't. Maybe it's you.

You've got this thing that makes me sing
in these inebriated, lollipop tones.
You've got this thing - like a skeleton key tongue ring -
that works on more than just hormones.

It's hard to know where this will go,
I might get high, you might get down with low.
But in between I'll say what I mean.
You said your kiss is violent -
I found that out and I kinda liked it.

I don't know why I can't get myself enough of you,
but baby it's true. It's true, baby.
