John Legend – Temporarily Painless lyrics

[Verse 1]
We don't have to explain it
The beat is way too loud
Even though the lights faded
I still saw you in the crowd
When I put you in my arm
Feel it all through me
When you promise me nothing
You give me everything I need

[Pre-Chorus]
She comes over
We're both not sober
It's like we're losing our minds
We kiss like lovers
And Cupid hovers
Like he's just learning to fly
And even though it's dangerous
It's temporarily painless
I'm falling for a stranger, stranger

[Chorus]
No need to justify
Little by little we love tonight
I need somebody
You need somebody too
No need to justify
All I wanna be is your friend tonight
I need somebody
You need somebody too
I need somebody
You need somebody too
I need somebody

[Verse 2]
Don't even know what your name is
When I taste your skin
I don't wanna sound shameless
I just wanna bring your body
Wanna push you in my place
Either hear you scream
You don't even have to stay
Oh but I don't think you wanna leave

[Pre-Chorus]
She comes over
We're both not sober
It's like we're losing our minds
We kiss like lovers
And Cupid hovers
Like he's just learning to fly
And even though it's dangerous
It's temporarily painless
I'm falling for a stranger, stranger

[Chorus]
No need to justify
Little by little we love tonight
I need somebody
You need somebody too
No need to justify
All I wanna be is your friend tonight
I need somebody
You need somebody too
I need somebody

[Bridge]
And even though it's dangerous
It's temporarily painless
I'm falling for a stranger, stranger
Even though it's dangerous
It's temporarily painless
I'm falling for a stranger, stranger

[Chorus]
No need to justify
Little by little we love tonight
I need somebody
You need somebody too
No need to justify
All I wanna be is your friend tonight
I need somebody
You need somebody too
I need somebody
You need somebody too
I need somebody
You need somebody too
