 [repeat verse] 


 


 I showed up late one night with a neon light for a visa


 But knowing I'm so eager to fight can't make letting me in any easier


 I know I've been wearing crazy clothes and I look pretty crappy


 sometimes


 But my body feels so good and I still sing a razor line every time


 And when it comes to all night li[(Csus4/Bb]ving, [C/Bb)]I know what I'm giving


 I've got it all down to a tee, and it's free

 When I say I need you you say you better,


 (You better you better you bet)

 When I say I love you you say you better,


 (You better you better you bet ooooh)


 And when I say I need you you scream you better, ooh
