I sit and wonder, I often wonder I sit and wonder about the things she does I sit and wonder, I often wonder I've been waiting for this moment to come
And she's the teacher and I'm the pupil but I ain't learning anything at all Now I' m falling into the black hole and I can barely feel the sun
Yeah I sit and wonder, I fall to pieces I've been waiting for her to come A bed of roses, her cheeks like peaches Yeah I ain't going to wait no more
Give me some light, give the light, yeah give me some light, give me some light
Well writes a passage, we are mistaken, yeah Some are going to break into stone, The door is open and I am reaching, yeah It looks like a prodigal son
Yeah give me some light, give the light, yeah give me some light, give me some light
God give me the light, give me the light, yeah give me some light, give me some light
I've been there doing it to my mind Lord
Something is going on inside my head Lord Something is going on inside my head Lord

Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
"Come Dancing" by The Kinks was inspired by the older sister of Ray Davies, who would make guys take her out dancing and spend their money on her, only to send them home frustrated with just a peck on the cheek.
The song "Sadeness" by Enigma (the one with the chanting monks), got its name from the French novelist Marquis de Sade, who believed sex had to be painful in order to be pleasurable - thus the word "sadism."
"Abracadabra" was inspired by Diana Ross and The Supremes. Steve Miller first met the girl group when they performed together on NBC's Hullabaloo in 1966, and he wrote the lyrics after spotting Diana Ross skiing in the mountains years later.
