If I had a dime left to my name
I'd polish my boots with champagne
I was a self made man with the devil's love for man-made things
I made a fine menagerie out of high society
I was the envy of all sneaks and thieves
I had the dandies on a string
Didn't I?

Ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-da-ba
ba-ba-ba-da-da-da-da

But you stood unimpressed
You called me the bear on a baroness
And you called yourself the queen mirage
Of all the deserts I couldn't possess
Didn't ya?

So tell me how does it feel to wanted?
Not to wake up wanting anything but a little sunshine
On your windowsill
Tell me how does it feel?

Ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-da-ba
ba-ba-ba-da-da-da-da

You stole the heart right from my sleeve
When you said it stained my crooked suit
But I could steal my heart right back if I were half as crooked as you

You were the thorn of my desire
In the rosebeds where I dream
You were the precious stone that I required
To make my crown complete
Weren't ya?

Tell me how does it feel to be wanted?
Not to wake up wanting anything but a little sunshine
On your windowsill
Tell me how does it feel?
(tell me how tell me how)

Death may kill me once but love will lie
She'll kill me a thousand times
By begging half as good a chance (?)
With a heart nobody lives

If I had a dime left to my name
I'd polish my boots with champagne
And I'd lace her fingers 'round my neck
Like a dandy on a string
So tell me how does it feel to be wanted?
Not to wake up wanting but a little sunshine (on your windowsill)
How does it feel to be wanted?
Not to wake up wanting anything but little sunshine on your windowsill
Tell me how does it feel?
