The All-American Rejects – Affection Lyrics

I always wonder where you are

I’m right beside you, you’re so far away

Moments you’re not facing me

Moments you’re not chasing me

I don’t believe in good good-byes

‘Cause even when the roses die

There’s still some thorns left in your side

It’s like a funeral for the bride

And I know candy girls, yeah they just rot your teeth, but

I’ve always been such a sucker for sweets

I need affection

All I want right now is affection

I don’t mean to point your direction

Girl it’s not what you do

What you don’t do makes me have to talk to you about affection

I need affection

Somewhere alone is when I died

On the banks of some canal

Yeah the river bed of tears I tried to ride

And even fools will believe in lies

And if every word you ever said were true

You’d be my god and I’d just pray to you for affection

All I want right now is affection

I don’t mean to make a confession

Girl it’s not what you do

What you don’t do makes a man come unglued

Oh, affection, I need affection

Why won’t you dance with me?

(Covered in gas you couldn’t catch fire)

There’s no more romance with me

(I know there’s someone else burning in your eyes)

You don’t think I see you

But I see right through you, baby

Whoa, affection

All I wanted was affection

All I needed was affection

What you do (what you do)

What you do (what you do)

Where’d you go?

Affection

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

And don’t think I see you

I see right through you

You don’t think I see you

But I do
