​Desire

This song is by Boz Scaggs and appears on the album Dig (2001).

So much desire in the world today
So much of everything you can't give it away
You could be happy but you're feeling so bad
About what you never have
Because you can't look at nothing without wanting it
And you know that's the truth

There's always some scene you think you got to break into
Or a new sensation to intoxicate you
Ain't it a drag
Staring through the glass at something doesn't touch you really
Or bring you laughter or roses or stroke your hair so tenderly

Desire
Stealing you away from me
Desire
You're living in a dream
Desire
Is getting the best of you

Who was it told you
You have to have everything you see
Same one who sold you that last fantasy
Roll up your sleeves and use those hands for something
That's gonna work for you baby
To fill your arms and your heart with joy

Desire
Stealing you away from me
Desire
You're living in a dream baby
Desire
Is getting the best of you

Now look into your mirror
Could you stand a little nearer
Look her in the eye
A lot depends on what you see
Now look away baby
Look my way baby
You'll see

Desire
Stealing you away from me
You're living in a dream
Is getting the best of you

Desire
Stealing you away from me
You're living in a dream

Who was it told you
You have to have everything you see...
