So I find a reason to shave my legs
So I count on someone on Friday nights
To church on Sundays
And someday think of kids

The way back home is always long
You're the one I need
'Cause there's nothing like your smile made of sun
In the world full of strangers

My kitchen phobia
When there's a ghost or a muse
To buy more thongs
It always takes a little help from someone
You're the one I need
But if you're close to me I'm holding on
My real life has just begun

The way back home is always long
You're the one I need
'Cause there's nothing like your smile made of sun
You're the one I need

You're the one I need
Nothing like your smile made of sun
Nothing like your love
Nothing like your love
