I wake up, in the middle of the night, from a dream, that is troubling me
The affair has been a mission of two, and if it doesn't hurt me, it'll have to hurt you.
So I sweat, and I toss and turn, I can't relax, is this a heart-attack?
What is true, that only two things exist, and I have difficulties, getting mad over this.
You know why! You know why!

Chorus:
What you want, what you need, ain't ever the same
All's fair when you're out there playing the game
You gonna hear, there are better places under the sun
Someone told me that gold, is knowing love

So I drive, down a line on the road with a heart that's been torn from the socket
There you were, the bottle you did bring, I only needed a sip, but I drank the whole thing
You know why! Because!

Chorus:
What you want, what you need, ain't ever the same
All's fair when you're out there playing the game
You gonna hear, there are better places under the sun
Someone told me that gold, is knowing love

Ooh you can do what you want to and you will see
You will feel, love is real
Time will tell, it always does.

Out-chorus: What you want, what you need, ain't ever the same
All's fair when you're out there playing the game
You gonna hear that there are better places under the sun
Someone told me that gold, is knowing love

What you want, what you need, ain't ever the same
All's fair when you're out there playing the game
You gonna hear that there are better places under the sun
Someone told me that gold, is knowing love

What you want, what you need, baby
What you want, baby, what you need
