Album: Kids In The Street (2012)
  • I always wonder where you are
    I'm right beside you, you're so far away
    Moments you're not facing me
    Moments you're not chasing me
    I don't believe in good good-byes
    Cause even when the roses die
    There's still some thorns left in your side
    It's like a funeral for the bride
    And I know candy girls, yeah they just wrapped your tears
    I've always been such a sucker for sweets

    I need affection
    All I want right now is affection
    I don't mean to point your direction
    Girl it's not what you do
    What you don't do makes me talk to you about affection
    I need affection

    Somewhere along is when I died
    On the banks of some canal
    Yeah the river bed of tears I tried to ride
    Even fools will believe in lies
    And if every word you said were true
    You'd be my god and I'd just pray to you for affection

    All I want right now is affection
    I don't mean to make a confession
    Girl it's not what you do
    What you don't do makes a man come unglued
    Affection, I need affection

    Why won't you dance with me
    (Covered in gas you couldn't catch fire)
    There's no more romance with me
    (I know there's someone else burning in your eyes)
    You don't think I see you
    But I see right through you baby

    Affection
    All I want, someone's affection
    All I need to, was affection
    What ya do (what ya do)
    What ya do (what ya do)
    Where'd ya go
    Affection
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    And don't think I see you
    I see right through you
    You don't think I see you
    But I do Writer/s: NICK WHEELER, TYSON RITTER
