The wanting kind

standing by the wishing well
make a wish and then rewind
fingers crossed behind your back
when you’re the wanting kind

here it is the perfect life
just like the one you designed
but you only see the flaws
when you’re the wanting kind

even when you’re making love
there’s still something on your mind
even when you’re making love
when you’re the wanting kind


yeah-yeah, ah-aa
ooh-ooh

make a deal with the devil {deal with the devil}
the ink is wet, it’s all been signed
but you’ll be looking over your shoulder {over your shoulder}
when you’re the wanting kind {hey-eh}

it doesn’t matter who you are
cynical or unrefined
you’ll be digging in the back of the drawer {digging}
for all the ones you left behind

even when you’re making love
there’s still something on your mind
even when you’re making love
when you’re the wanting kind

what does it take to make you happy?
what does it take to make you happy?


ooh-ee-ooh
yeah

you’ve been looking all your life {all your life}
there must be someone you can find
funny thing is you’ve found yourself {found yourself}
just another wanting kind

even when you’re making love
there’s still something on your mind
even when you’re making love
when you’re the wanting kind

what does it take to make you happy? {the wanting kind}
what does it take to make you happy?
you happy


{wanting kind}
yeah-yeah-yeah
yeah-ee-eah, yeah-yeah
yeah-yeah-yeah
{wanting kind}
oh, yeah-yeah-yeah
