  • If she knew what she wants
    (He'd be giving it to her)
    If she knew what she needs
    (He could give her that too)
    If she knew what she wants
    (But he can't see through her)
    If she knew what she wants
    He'd be giving it to her
    Giving it to her

    But she wants everything
    (He can pretend to give her everything)
    Or there's nothing she wants
    (She don't want to sort it out)
    He's crazy for this girl
    (But she don't know what she's looking for)
    If she knew what she wants
    He'd be giving it to her
    Giving it to her

    I'd say her values are corrupted
    But she's open to change
    Then one day she's satisfied
    And the next I'll find her crying
    And it's nothing she can explain

    Some have a style
    That they work hard to refine
    So they walk a crooked line
    But she won't understand
    Why anyone would have to try
    To walk a line when they could fly

    No sense thinking I could rehabilitate her
    When she's fine, fine, fine
    She's got so many ideas traveling around in her head
    She doesn't need nothing from mine Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
