Affection - The All-American Rejects

I always wonder where you are
I'm right beside you, you're so far away
Moments you're not friends with me
Are moments you're not chasing me

I don't believe in good goodbyes (goodbye)
'cause even when the roses die
There's still some thorns left in your side
It's like a funeral for the bride (for the bride)
And I know candy girls, yeah they just rot your teeth
But I've always been such a s_cker for sweets

I need affection (oh, oh, oh, oh)
All I want right now is affection (oh, oh, oh, oh)
I don't mean to point your direction
Girl, it's not what you do,
What you don't do makes me have to talk to you about affection (oh, oh, oh, oh)
I need affection
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm

Somewhere alone is when I die (when I die)
On the banks of some canal, yeah, the river bed, the tears I tried to hide
Even fools will believe in lies (believe in lies)
And if every word you ever said were true
You'd be my god and I'd just pray to you

For affection (oh, oh, oh, oh)
All I want right now is affection (oh, oh, oh, oh)
I don't mean to make a confession
Girl, it's not what you do,
What you don't do makes a man come unglued of affection (oh, oh, oh, oh)
I need affection

Ah, why won't you dance with me
There's no more romance with me
You don't think I see you
But I see right through you, baby

Whoa, affection (affection)
All I wanted was affection (affection)
All I needed was affection

What'd you do (what'd you do)
What'd you do (what'd you)
What'd you do

Affection
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

You don't think I see you
I see right through you

You don't think I see you
But I do
