You know there's something you need Right here and now To fill the space inside of yourself Money love or power When you want to have the number one first run anyone You're crazy 'til you own them
You ought to know better than that The more that you buy the less you get back It's a case of possession obsession Gimme Gimme
The compulsion to count the percentage of time Spent between two lovers Can turn an hour into a crime And all the good times suffer Though you know it's only jealousy You can't help but be Haunted by your passion
Don't you know it's a matter of fact The more that you take the less you give back Just a taste of possession obsession Brings a case of possession obsession Gimme Gimme
Bruce Springsteen wrote "Blinded By The Light," which was a #1 hit for Manfred Mann's Earth Band. The "Madman Drummers" line is a reference to Springsteen's first E-Street drummer, Vinnie "Mad dog" Lopez.
