why can you read me like no one else?
I hide behind these words
but I'm coming out
I wish I kept them behind my tongue
I hide behind these words
but I'm coming out

put your hand between
an aching head and an aching world
we'll make them so jealous
we'll make them hate us
an aching head and an aching world
we'll make them so jealous
we'll make them so jealous

always you make my stomach turn
and all the long drives
with my friends blur
and I wish I kept them inside my mind
I hide behind these words

and think of all the places
where you've been lost
and then found...out
in between my sheets
in between the rights and the wrongs

put your hand between
an aching head and an aching world
we'll make them so jealous
we'll make them hate us
aching head and an aching world
think of all the places
where you've been lost and found...out

    General CommentIt's Not a Side Effect Of The Cocaine. I Am Thinking It Must Be A Pathetic Attempt At Gaining Some Musical Credibility By Quoting David Bowie.

    FOB and Timberlake, it's like the shittiest music out right now is joining forces to irritate me.

    General CommentIt sounds like world one time, then wound another..

    the lyrics in the CD say world, so i am guessing its him saying that he wants her to shield him from the world... he wants to forget about everything around him, and just focus on her, and wants her to do the same.
