"Absence of Affection" as written by Eric Frederic, Robert Thomas, Brian Dales and John Gomez....
You got your hands down under the table
You got your head right up in the clouds
You take your best shot when you're able
But your world don't spin right now
It's high time you found a lover
It's high time you made a friend
The world won't keep you together, babe
And your heart won't see no end
I say

And if everybody wants you
Tell me why are you so alone
In the absence of affection
We'll take anything and call it love
In the absence of affection
We'll take anything and call it love

You got your flash friends waiting to meet you
They're stuck like butterflies up on the wall
And in the night life no one can beat you
Ooh, you look so pretty it's a pity just to touch you
But you never know when it's gonna fall
You never know when it's gonna fall
So you fake it until you make it
And beat your head against that wall

And if everybody wants you
Tell me why are you so alone
In the absence of affection
We'll take anything and call it love
In the absence of affection
We'll take anything and call it love

And if everybody wants you
Tell me why are you so alone
In the absence of affection
We'll take anything and call it love

And if everybody wants you
Tell me why are you so alone
In the absence of affection
We'll take anything and call it love
We'll take anything and call it love
