The Acoustic Motorbike


When I'm alone in my room sometimes I stare at the wall
In the back of my mind I hear my conscience call
Telling me I need a girl who is as sweet as a dove
For the first time I can see I need love

There I was joking at my games
So many hearts and I'm saying no names
A thought occurred tears made my eyes burn
I said to myself look what you've done to her

I can feel it inside I can't explain how it feels
All I know is that I'll never dish another raw deal
Playing make believe pretending that I'm true
Holding in my laugh as I say I love you

Say no more I whisper in your ear
I say I love you and I will always be here
And though I often reminisce I can't believe that I've found
Desire for true love floating around

Inside my soul because my soul is cold
Half of me deserves to be this way until I'm old
The other half needs affection and joy
The warmth created by a boy and a girl

I need love

Romance sheer delight how sweet
I gotta find me a girl who can make my life complete
Scratch my back get cosy and huddle
I would lay down my jacket you could walk in a puddle
I'd give you a rose pull out your chair before we eat
Kiss you on the cheek oh girl you're so sweet
It's déjà vu whenever I'm with you
I could go on forever telling you what I'd do
But where the hell are you neither here nor there
I swear I can't find you anywhere
You're not in my closet or under my rug
And this love search it's really making me bug

So if you know who you are
Why don't you make yourself seen
Take a chance with my love you'll see what I mean
Fantasies can run but they cannot hide
And when I find you I will pour all my love inside

I need love

I'm gonna kiss you, hold you, never scold you
Suck on your neck caress and hug you
Cry and moan you'll never be alone
if you're standing next to me or on the phone

Can't you hear my voice I need you so bad
I've got money, but love is something I never had
I need your ruby red lips, sweet face and all
I love you more than the man who's ten feet tall

I watch the sunrise in your eyes
So in love when we hug we feel paralyzed
Our bodies explode in ecstasy unreal
You're as soft as a pillow I'm as hard as steel

It's a dream I can't lie because I've never been there
This is an experience that you and me can share
Clean, unsoiled yet sweaty and wet
I swear to you this is something I will never forget

I need love
I need love

You see I've changed, I'm no longer
A playboy of the world
I need something that's stronger
Friendship, trust, respect and admiration
This whole experience is such a revelation

Taught me love and how to be a real man
Always be considerate and do all I can
Protect you you're my lady and you mean so much
My body tingles all over at the slightest touch
Of your hand and understand I'll be frozen in time
Till we meet face to face and you tell me you're mine

When I find you I swear I'll be a good man
I'm not going to leave it in destiny's hands
Can't sit and wait for my princess to arrive
Struggle and fight to keep my dream alive
I've searched the world for a special girl
When I find you watch this love unfurl

I need love
I need love

Girl listen to me
If you're out there
Please make yourself seen

I need love
I need love
I need love
