  • Am I made of paper
    'Cause I tear so easily
    Am I made of vapor
    Because I disappear
    Do I have to have a reason
    For anything I feel
    Just be glad I'm real
    Glad I'm real
    Am I real

    Are you made of lead paint
    A bulletproof Picasso
    All the virgin saints
    Put you here to care for me
    I don't need a reason
    For anything I feel
    Just be glad I say what I mean
    And mean what I say to you

    We don't need a reason
    For anything we feel
    We don't need a reason
    Picasso's at the wheel
    So roll this top down, hell with this town
    Leave our bags behind
    We don't need a reason
    'Cause I got you, and you got me tonight
    ('Cause I got you, and you got me tonight)

    Did you ever see the waves break
    Into a million pieces
    Or stay awake
    With someone who was dying
    You don't need to tell me
    Anything at all
    I'm just glad you're here
    Glad you're real
    Are you real

    Am I made of timber
    'Cause I'm on fire
    Will you remember
    Tonight for very long
    You don't need to sell me
    On anything at all
    Just say what you mean
    And mean what you say to me

    We don't need a reason
    For anything we feel
    We don't need a reason
    Picasso's at the wheel
    So roll this top down, hell with this town
    Leave our bags behind
    We don't need a reason
    'Cause I got you, and you got me tonight

    Amber waves of grain
    Fly by highway lanes
    Waited for this change
    Seems like my entire life
    If only the good die young
    We'll outlast everyone
    For some of the things we've done
    And we've just begun

    (Oh)

    We don't need a reason
    For anything we feel
    We don't need a reason
    Picasso's at the wheel
    So roll this top down, hell with this town
    Leave our bags behind
    We don't need a reason
    'Cause I got you, and you got me tonight

    Woah (You got me tonight)
    Woah (You got me tonight)
    Woah (Oh you got me tonight)
