But I'm gonna change...
I don't want to stay this way forever
Someday I'm gonna change


Lock that door and turn out the light
Close the curtain on the world outside
Under the cover where I'm safe and warm
Feel so happy, like I'd never been born...

Feel so good... like I never been born

Don't bother knocking on my bedroom door
When I get this obsession I don't care no more
The need is on me and my need comes first
Feel like the centre of the universe

Feel so good... like the centre of the universe

And it feels so good
But it's the worst feeling I've ever had
If it feels so good
Why does it always hurt so bad

I gotta get some money and I don't care how
I need satisfaction and I need it now
Gimme a problem and I'll fix it fast
But satisfaction just don't last...

Feel so good... but satisfaction just don't last

And it feels so good (feel so good)
But it's the worst feeling I've ever had
If it feels so good (feel so good)
Why does it always hurt so bad

Laid on the line
I've been waiting and aching
Wasting my time
If I've got a problem

Well at least it's mine
