Night after night
I keep holding on
you say you love me
then you leave me so lonely

Baby, I don't believe a word
you're sayin'
I think it's all some evil game
you're playin'

Still all day long all I do is think
about ya
you got me believin' that I can't
live without ya
well if ya want it, well here is
my confession
baby, I can't help it, you're my obsession

Protection, that's what I need
I need protection, baby from your love
protection, that's what I need
I need protection, baby from your love

I wait at home by my telephone
when I call your house, baby
you're not home
knock on the door and rush
down the stairs
when I open up, baby you're
not there

When we're together and ya put
your arms around me
your love sweeps away all the
confusion that surrounds me

You keep my mind
forever, ever in doubt
you want me believin'
that baby, I can't live without

Protection that's what I need
I need protection, baby from your love
protection, that's what I need
I need protection, baby from your love

We stand alone, at my window
and stare out, at the shadows
down below
I feel your fingers on my face
I want to stay, I want to run away

Protection that's what I need
I need protection, baby from your love
protection, that's what I need
I need protection, baby from your love
protection, that's what I need
I need protection, baby from your love
protection, that's what I need
I need protection, baby from your love
