Joan Armatrading – Thinking Man lyrics

In the new edition
I'm gonna rule out friction
I'm gonna get someone
Who understands

I want a heart
Less demanding
Speak your mind
But standing
Cuddling close
Cuddling close

A thinking man's
What I want
In action
And in words
A thinking man's
What I need
And if you can't give respect
It's better we don't start

I've had enough indifference
I... I... I...
That's all I heard
That's all I heard

I want someone
Who listens
No fighting
For position
No other self
To have to satisfy

Oh I wanna be with you
I know that you want me too
Say it's not just for my body
Give me piece of mind
Give me piece of mind

In the new edition
I'm gonna rule out friction
Cuddling close
Cuddling close
