Well, I’m lookin’ through clean windows and I can see clear
From where I came from it looks like it just rained here
Something exciting in the air
Seems I’m learning how to care for myself as well as you
Tryin’ hard to keep that point of view

I’ll find another kind of lovin’ better than down there
Another kind of feelin’ than “I don’t care”
Can’t you see it’s not his thighs bringing tears to cloud my eyes
But his tongue gently lashing me in two
Why does it feel so good around you?
I’ll find another love

There’ll be another night much better than that night, last night
Another loft much bigger and more bright
No more lunches with the foe
Pins and needles in Soho
Does it all BEGIN WITH YOU?
And there is nothin’ that I would rather do
