  • I don't mind being lonely
    But I do mind if not being loved
    Maybe you're feeling the same way too
    You're ready to hold some one

    [Chorus]
    I really want to know you
    I really want to show you the way I feel
    I really want to know you
    I really want to show you the way I feel

    Something about you is telling me
    We're coming from the very same place
    It's only just a notion I have
    (But) I see it written over your face

    [Chorus]

    You've got something about you that I want around me
    Something I've been searching all my life through
    So now it's up to you, yeah, yeah
    Tell me what you're gonna do
    I want to know yeah yeah yeah

    Every time I see you it's the same thing all over again
    You're doing something to me it's true
    And I don't want to fell it end

    [Chorus]

    You've got something about you that I want around me
    Something I've been searching all my life through
    So now it's up to you, yeah, yeah
    Tell me what you're gonna do
    I want to know yeah yeah yeah Writer/s: ALISTAIR JAMES MACKAY THOMSON, GARY WRIGHT
