I wake up in the middle of the night
From a dream that is troubling me
The affair of an emotional fool
If it doesn't hurt me it will have to hurt you

So I sweat, and I toss and turn
Can't relax, is this a heart attack?
What is true that only two things exist
And I have difficulty selecting that over this

You know why
You know why

What you want, what you need ain't never the same
All's fair when you're out there playing the game
You're going to hear that there are better places under the sun
Someone told me that gold is knowing love

So I drive down a line in the road
With a heart that's been torn from the start
There you were, the bottle you did bring
I only needed a sip, but I drank the whole thing

You know why
Because

What you want, what you need ain't never the same
All's fair when you're out there playing the game
You're going to hear that there are better places under the sun
Someone told me that gold is knowing love

You can do what you want to when you're wishing
You can feel love is real
Time will tell, it always does

What you want, what you need ain't never the same
All's fair when you're out there playing the game
Going to hear that there are better places under the sun
Someone told me that gold is knowing love

What you want, what you need ain't never the same
All's fair when you're out there playing the game
Going to hear that there are better places under the sun
Someone told me that gold is knowing love
