I'm right on target
My aim is straight
So you're in love
I say what of it
Things can change
There's always changes
And I wanna try
Some rearranging

Drop the pilot
Try my balloon
Drop the monkey
Smell my perfume
Drop the mahout
I'm the easy rider
Don't use your army
To fight a losing battle

Animal, mineral, physical, spiritual
I'm the one you need
I'm the one you need

You're kissing cousins
There's no smoke
No flame
If you lose that pilot
I can fly your plane
If you want solid ground
Come on and try me
Or I can take you so high
That you're never gonna wanna
Come down

Drop the pilot
Try my balloon
Drop the monkey
Smell my perfume
Drop the mahout
I'm the easy rider
Don't use your army
To fight a losing battle

Animal, mineral, physical, spiritual
I'm the one you need
I'm the one you need
I said
Animal, mineral, physical, spiritual
I'm the one you need
I'm the one you need
I'm the one you need

    We all have it in us to believe in true love & that it can happen with yet another twin soul, the same, more than once in a lifetime :-)

    It is a woman telling a man who is with the wrong woman to send her packing and be with her instead because she is everything he needs in every way.
