I got a straight jacket made for two. We'll get in together just me and you.
A soul incognito, a smile in disguise. You're the bullet in my gun wrapped tight as suicide.
I know who you are but you don't know me. Another face in the crowd another smile on TV
You don't have to be lonely pick up the phone. Dial 1-800 there's nobody home.
Sometimes I just can't take it - voices calling out my name
A love affair without commercials. There's never any games.
I got a lock on my door in a house with a thousand rooms.
All I want is to touch you - hope they let me out soon.
Speak to me I'm a hollow man. You can learn to love me with 500 mg.
I got a straight jacket made for two
We could live here forever - just me and you.
