You know those nights, where you decide you're going to just have one or two, and you wake up the following morning with a pounding head and a parched throat ? And you tell yourself, Never, Ever, Again ?


I think I've lost the bit,
The chip that keeps me cold.
And as I lose my breath,
I begin to feel my hope.
All you perfect girls,
With all your perfect smiles,
I love you everyone you,
You make it all worthwhile.

Say it like you mean it.
Say it like you want it.

Is this my fifth or sixth,
Of just the one or two ?
Is this as good as it gets,
Or is there something better ?
I want you to want me,
And I want to want to want you back.
But I don't think you believe me,
I think you think you've heard that.

Say it like you mean it.
Say it like you want it.

Your stomach churns and your head explodes.
And you begin to feel like letting go.
But her smile will bring you back again,
You're a glutton for punishment.

You've got the style and I've got the usual kind of fear of the wrong reaction.

Say it like you mean it. (You want it you got it).
Say it like you want it. (You want it you got it).
