  • Why does love have to?
    Where does it go to
    Outta my door?
    How much have you got?
    Is it enough for me
    Or will I want more?

    Oh,oh, you tell me you just want some fun.
    Oh, oh, I'm trapped between the fire and the man with the gun.

    Time in a vacuum,
    Waiting for someone to say what they think.
    But all that pretending doesn't convince me
    'cause they just want to buy me a drink.

    Oh, oh, you tell me you want to be free.
    Oh, oh, baby, I'm trapped between the devil and the deep blue sea.

    It's night in the city,
    I'm filled with self-pity -
    I'm taking the air.
    If somebody hits me
    Here in this city,
    I swear I just don't care.
    Oh, oh, just looking for proof.
    Oh, oh, I'm trapped like a cat on a hot tin roof.
    Oh, oh, just looking for proof.
    Oh, oh, I'm trapped like a cat on a hot tin roof.

    I got to have proof,
    I got to have proof,
    I got to have proof,
    I got to have proof. (repeat) Writer/s: Andy Powell, Bob Skeat, Joe Crabtree, Mark Abrahams
