Mel Cooleys – Needle In The Haystack lyrics

Into the room like a target
Into my heart like a knife
I can lead you to water
I can lead you to drink
I can lead you into changing your life
But if you're looking for a girl to hold on to
Better than the one by your side
You can try to change horses
In the middle of the stream
If another horse is ready to ride
You came into the fray like a soldier
Into the night like a whore
And I could leave you for no one
I could leave you for dead
I could leave for something new to explore
Now you got everything that you ever wanted
You got piece of ass and peace of mind
Still there's another to the left
And there's another to the right
If you think that theirs are better than mine
And you've been searching for devotion
And you've been outside looking in
And you've been hoping for a sign to save the day
I am the one who's always been here
I am the unoriginal sin
I'm the needle in the haystack
Into the soul like a surgeon
Into the pain like a smile
I could love you forever
I could love you for now
I could love you like a motherless child
But if you're waiting for a woman to offer
More than just the love on these lips
Well you can take another prisoner
Or take another road
And I'll pack a little food for the trip
'Cause you've been out there on your ocean
And you've survived the undertow
And you've been waiting for the tide to turn your way
I am the one who's always been here
I am the secret that you know
I'm the needle in the haystack
'Cause you've been wasting emotion
And you've been angling for it all
And you've been trolling while the big one slips away
I am
