Lyrics
Copyright © 2005 Jim Ferrie Music

Slowly turns the hands of time
Another day, another dime
And every place of work the same
Without exception

All the suits all look the same
They all got numbers, never names
And never any oddballs here
Except two persons

From where I sit I look at you
And wonder if you?re wondrin? too
That we?re the two that?s totally lost
In our directions

I sit and think and can?t deny
It seems to me we?re livin? a lie

But I?m here for you girl, if you need me to talk to
And I?m here for you girl, if you want me to walk you
Look me straight in the eye and show me your there for some
One on one

Lately I been watchin? you, seems that
You been watchin? me too
And everytime you pass me by you
Make me nervous

The way you look, the way you dress
Clothes way too tight and your hair a mess
And passin? me by like I don?t exist, it
Makes me horny

But I been gettin? food for thought from friends of yours
They been tellin? me ?lot ?bout the way you seem to be lookin?
In my direction

Come over here and don?t deny
I ain?t gonna see you livin? a lie

Hey, I?m here for you, girl and you know that I want you
You been lookin? at me and I know that you want me
Look me straight in the eye and see I want you to love me
One on one

So there you are, the truth will out
Couldn?t be plainer if I had to shout out the way
I been feelin? since I been believin? you
Feel the same way

So now you can easily give me a try
And never again have to pass me by
And I won?t feel stupid or even deny
The way I?m feelin?

An? I?ll promise to love you as long as I can
?Coz after all I?m only a man
But the animal in me is drivin? me on
In your direction

Hold me close and don?t deny
I ain?t gonna see you livin? a lie

Hey, I?m here for you, girl and you know that I want you
You been lookin? at me and I know that you want me
Look me straight in the eye and see I want you to love me
One on one
