 Pattern 1
I don't know why you're mean to me
 Pattern 2
When I call on the telephone,
 Pattern 1
And I don't know what you mean to me, but I want to turn you on
 Pattern 2
Turn you up, figure you out, I wanna take you on.

These words, "You will be mine," All the time,
 Pattern 1
"The Fool" might be my middle name
 Pattern 2
But I'd be foolish not to say
 Pattern 1
Gonna make whatever it takes, ring you up, call you down, sign your name,
Make it rhyme,
 Pattern 2
Take you in and make you mine?

What I want to feel, I want to feel it now.
 Pattern 1
You know with love comes strange currencies,
 Pattern 2
And here is my appeal:
 Pattern 1
I need a chance, a second chance, a third chance, a fourth chance, a word,
a signal, a nod, a little breath
 Pattern 2
Just to fool myself, to catch myself, to make it real, real
