I Need A Lover Lyrics

by Mellencamp John Cougar

I've been walking the streets in the evening
Racing through the human jungle at night
I'm so confused, my mind is indifferent
Hey, I'm so weak, won't somebody turn off the light
Electricity runs through the video
As I watch from the hole I call home
All the stony's are dancin' to the radio
And I got the world calling me up here tonight on the phone
CHORUS
I need a lover that won't drive me crazy
Some girl to thrill me and then go away
I need a lover that won't drive me crazy
Some girl that knows the meaning of, hey, hit the highway
Well, I'm not wiped out by this poolroom life I'm living
Gonna quit this job, go to school or head back home
Well, I'm not asking to be loved or be forgiven
I just can't face shakin' in this bathroom one more night alone
I need a lover that won't drive me crazy
I need a lover that won't drive me crazy
I need a lover that won't drive me crazy
Some girl that knows the meaning of, hey, hit the highway
