[Verse 1]
I always wonder where you are
I'm right beside you, you're so far away
Moments you're not facing me, Moments you're not chasing me
I don't believe in good, goodbyes
'Cause even when the roses die there's still some thorns left in your side
It's like a funeral for the bride
And I know candy girls, yeah they just rot your teeth
But I've always been such a sucker for sweets
[Chorus]
I need affection
All I want right now is affection
I don't mean to point your direction
Girl it's not what you do, what you don't do makes me have to talk to you about affection
I need affection
Mmmhmmhmmhmm
Somewhere alone is when I died
On the banks of some canal, yeah the river bed of tears I tried to hide
Even fools will believe in lies
And if every word you ever said were true
You'd be my God and I'd just pray to you
[Chorus]
For affection
All I want right now is affection
I don't mean to make a confession
Girl it's not what you do, what you don't do makes a man come unglued
No affection
I need affection
Why won't you dance with me?
(Covered in gas you couldn't catch fire)
There's no more romance with me
(I know there's someone else burning your eyes)
You don't think I see you but I see right through you, baby
Woah Affection! (Affection!)
All I wanted was affection (Affection!)
All I needed was affection
What you do? (What you do) What you do? (What, what you do?)
Affection!
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah. [x3]
You don't think I see you, I see right through you
You don't think I see you, but I do
