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 yeah, yeah yeah

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

it doesn’t matter who you are
cynical or unrefined
you’ll be digging in the back of the drawer
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? {the wanting kind}
what does it take to make you happy?
you happy


yeah yeah

you’ve been looking all your life
there must be someone you can find
funny thing is you’ve 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
yeah yeah
yeah yeah yeah
you happy


mmm-mmm
what does it take to make you happy? {what does it take to make you happy?}
what does it take to make you happy? {what does it take}
what does it take to make you happy? {what does it take to make you happy?}
what does it take to make you happy? {what does it take}
what does it take to make you happy?


[…]
what does it take to make you happy? {what does it take to make you happy?}
what does it take to make you happy? {to make you happy}
what does it take to make you happy? {to make you happy}
happy {happy}
happy
happy, oh
happy, yeah
[ something else here?? the 'other' song from FML?]
what does it take
happy, happy
happy
