Michael, You've Got A Lot To Answer For

Album: Medazzaland (1997)
  • I came over your place today
    In a roundabout sort of way
    Nothing holding me
    Just the company
    Gentle killing the afternoon

    Don?t ever try to be any more
    Michael, you?ve got a lot to answer for
    You unlocked some of the doors to my soul

    And I don?t see you for a while
    Thinking of you will make me smile
    You never bother me with responsibility
    Misbehaving in candlelight

    Don?t ever try to give any more
    Michael, you?ve got a lot to answer for
    You got me waking up wise to the world

    Trust you to get caught up in somebody?s war
    You?ll come out of it all in time, I?m sure
    Just remember what friends were put here for
    Michael, you?ve got a lot to answer for

    And I know that you?re gonna call
    If you need me
    When you need me
    If you need me?
