Michael Bolton – Really Wanna Know lyrics

The people come from all around
And lay their precious money down
Satisfaction, guaranteed
No distractions, all you need
Spend a weekend in paradise
Try this on, it's very nice
You're having fun
Stick around and we'll sell you the sun

And soon ya learn to play the game
Ya lose ya win it's all the same
Catch your dream before it fades
And join the endless masquerade
Where pain relievers speak to you
A make believers dream come true
You learn so well
No one not even you can tell

But I really wanna know
But I really wanna know
But I really wanna know
And I've got no choice
Can ya tell me, what's goin' on

Now every game begins and ends
And though the player still pretends
In mausoleums, on painted walls
The tale of those who'd have it all
The slave of glory's lost demands
To always leave with empty hands
The conqueror
Tell me what have you come here for


This life it is your only friend
It's whispered in your ear
In a voice it seems like ages
You've been waiting so long just to hear
And suddenly the mystery, and
Meaning become so clear
Hold on yesterday's gone

Oh, I really wanna know
I really wanna know
I really wanna know
I really wanna know
And I've got no choice
Can you tell me, what's goin' on
