I ask you just how you’re feeling - fine
Nothing but your pretty face on my mind
Really need you
Want to seed you
Take care that the brothers don’t beat you

Thinking back to the things you said
Nothing but your dirty face in my head
Want to wake you
Want to make you
Take care for the sisters that’ll break you

Jesus only knows
All this time the pain inside you grows
Even if you push that hurt away
Where does it go?
Where does it go?

Make me feel that I’m second best
Like I’m living at a 2-star address
Try to find you
Wine and dine you
Make sure that your troubles are behind you

Like to think that you are top
Of the heap of the haves’ and have-nots
Want to face you
Want to taste you
Make sure nobody going to waste you

Jesus only knows
All this time the pain inside you grows
Even if you push that hurt away
Where does it go?
Where does it go?

Sticks and stones your reaction
Fire and flame in the afterglow
Driving me to distraction
Oh no, oh no, oh no

Now what you gonna tell your friends
Are you gonna try to trick me again
Did you really try to put me down
If you did you should be leaving town

Jesus only knows
All this time the beast inside you grows
Even if you lock that thing away
Where does it go?
Where does it go?

Hold on tight and don’t let go
Hold on to the things you know
Don’t you see the writings on the wall

Make sure everything you say
Brings you closer everyday
Don’t you get too far away to call
