Music & Lyrics by Rick Springfield

And I say no, no more
I can’t see you again
But I don’t know if I mean it
I don’t know if I just pretend
I make up my mind the feeling’s dead
But who’s fooling who inside my head

And I know that I had the feeling
That something’s wrong
It’s been out of my control for much too long
I always seem to want to fall in love
With the iron hand inside the velvet glove
But it feels so good

Oh woman I need you
Do you want me to beg
I lost my pride long ago
And you know it
Oh woman I love you
When you take me to bed
My private beatings never show

Woman when you make love you close your eyes
And I don’t get any closer to the mystery
Oh woman I need you
You must be the one
Don’t cut me free ’cause I can’t be by myself

The voices say “stand up”
I wish that I could
I feel the nail being driven in
But there’s something about it that feels so good
You’re always the talk of the town
And the town won’t shut up talking
‘Til the king is crowned
And I know that I know you like it, hard and tough
There’s a lot of heat and spark, but that’s not enough
The actor wants to skip the final scene
Tho’ the keys are in the getaway machine
I just can’t go

Oh woman I need you
Do you want me to beg
I lost my pride long ago
And you know it
Oh woman I love you
When you take me to bed
My private beatings never show

Woman when we make love you close your eyes
And I don’t get any closer to the mystery
Oh woman I need you
You must be the one
Don’t cut me free ’cause I can’t be by myself

And I know that I get the feeling
There’s something wrong
It’s been out of my control for much too long
I always seem to want to fall in love
With the iron hand inside the velvet glove
But it feels so good

Oh woman I need you
Do you want me to beg
I lost my pride long ago
And you know it
Oh woman I love you
When you take me to bed
My private beatings never show

Woman when you make love you close your eyes
And I don’t get any closer to the mystery

Oh woman I need you
You must be the one
Don’t cut me free ’cause I can’t be by myself
Oh woman I need you
I lost my pride long ago
Woman, when you make love you close your eyes

Oh woman I need you
Oh woman I love you
