Lyrics

[Verse 1] Look up on the wall, there on the floor Under the pillow, behind the door There's a crack in the mirror Somewhere there's a hole in a window pane Now, do you think I'm to blame? Tell me, do you think I'm to blame? [Chorus] (When we do it) You're never there (When you show it) Just stop and stare (Abacab) He's in anywhere (Abacab) [Verse 2] If you're wrappin' up the world Cause you've taken someone else's girl When they turn on the pillow Even when they answer the telephone Don't you think that by now? Tell me, don't you think that by now? [Chorus] (When we do it) You're never there (When you show it) Just stop and stare (Abacab) He's in anywhere (Abacab) Doesn't really care [Bridge] You want it? You got it, gotta go You want it? You got it, now you know [Verse 3] It's an illusion, it's a game A reflection of someone else's name When you wake in the morning Wake and find you're covered in cellophane Well, there's a hole in there somewhere Yeah, there's a hole in there somewhere Baby, there's a hole in there somewhere Now, there's a hole in there somewhere [Chorus] (When we do it) You're never there (When you show it) You stop and stare (Abacab) He's in anywhere (Abacab)
