Love is gnawing on my mind
Feeling real down
All dressed up in my new suit
Took my name, my sight, my song
Been trying to find myself all day long

I heard 'em saying
Love'll be a curse or a restless friend
Love belongs in movies
Now, I know I played with your heart
'Cause, when I turned back around, I saw

You, in someone else's arms
Walking 'round town
All dressed up, making your move
But, I was scared to fall in love
I never thought I'd be the one
That would push you in her arms, oh

Oh, baby, it's code
I want you to hold me
And love me 'til I want no more
And need me, need me, 'til I need no more
Baby, it's code
Baby, it's code

But, I was scared to fall in love
I never thought I'd be the one
That would push you in her arms, oh!

Oh, baby, it's code
I want you to hold me
And love me 'til I want no more
And need me, need me, 'til I need no more
Baby, it's code
Baby, it's code

Oh, baby, hey, baby
I wanna be in your arms, oh
Please don't leave

Please, I need a nurse
I've been hurt
I need a glass of Merlot Blanc
I know I was wrong, but can't you see
The harm that's been done to me?
Oh!
