Playful, adventurous, they come my way
I'm foreign fruit, a challenging root to tame
If you want to entertain, I won't complain
Move your pawn, take me out of the mundane

But let's just go ahead and make something clear
I'm no beginner in this game my dear
So if you think I'll let you in, so you can go and flatter your ego on the fantasy I'm serving you on a silver platter, you're well deluded I fear

I don't need no lover
Just someone to hold me through the night... from time to time
I don't want no lover
Just a conversation in the moonlight... a vacation from my mind

Oh I've learned the rules; wisely choose colors and moods
Give out a few clues, keep the score tied, just smile and elude
A small wave in my ocean of solitude
You seem confused as I show you my cards and my next move

If you give me some care, I'll give you the same
But don't be fooled it's just a friendly game
So don’t you say you wanna love me like I deserve, it’s fire consuming what I paint my mirror, I know better, and yes I’ll take the blame

I don't need no lover
Just someone to hold me through the night... from time to time
I don't want no lover
Just harmonization, a flicker of light... a desertion from my mind

No I don't need no expectations
I don't need no frustration
No unbalanced situation
My heart in your hand, my hand on a rock
Spare me the spiel, spare us the culture shock
No more fine promises buried under the sheets
Won't waste my burning kisses on latent cold feet

No I don't want no lover
No I don't need no lover
No I don't...
Just someone to hold me together... just for tonight
