Chorus:

I could be your sister, I could be your mother
We could be friends, Id even be your brother
But Id rather be your lover
Thats right, Id rather be your lover

I dont know where I stand with you
I never ever make any plans with you
I dont know what I mean to you
The only thing I know is I dream of you

Bridge:

And all that I know [all that I know]
Is I just dont understand [just dont understand]
Why my, mmmm, happiness always lies
In the palm of your hand, but

(chorus)

Sometimes I know what youre thinking next
But wouldnt it be better if I loved you less?
Sometimes I think that I made you up
But wouldnt it be better if I gave you up?

(bridge)
(chorus)

Are you surprised?

(spoken:)
Tell me whatch-ya want, tell me whatch-ya need
Tell me whatch-ya want, tell me whatch-ya need
I, I betcha i, I give you whatch-ya need
Take a walk within me, venture through the dark sea
Cant you see, I need you beside me
Dont you see, I want you to want me

(bridge)
(chorus, repeat)
Are you surprised?
(chorus)
Are you surprised? are you?
