They'll tell you they're in it for money,
They will say their intentions are pure.
They are scouring the room for the prettiest face in the bar.
They're hungry for power, they're just picking flowers,
They are looking for a war to fight,
Or they just want someone, they just want someone to hold tonight.
They'll say they are looking for diamonds,
Or that they want to conquer the world.
They'll tell you they're building a tower that climbs to the stars,
A straight-A report card, an island, a sports care,
A woman's cigarette to light,
Or they just want someone, they just want someone to hold tonight.
They'll say they are hungry for knowledge,
They will tell you they're thirsty for God.
They are combing the earth for the notes to a song,
The world can all join arm in arm and sing along.
They want a straight answer, they're trying to cure cancer,
They are digging for the sweetest bite.
No, they just want someone, they just want someone to hold tonight.
