about

A song written about that special woman who's intuition might as well be psychic ability.

lyrics

I bore her to tears
With my theories of life and living
She has no fear
And I'm apparently unconvincing

She has a way
Of shutting me down completely
With nothing to say
I return to the line of the needy

I turn up lost
She keeps it together
I hardly function
She makes me better

She gives me space
To act like a man
That girl knows me
Like the back of her hand

She's got the power
And I'm at her beck and call
If love was a tower
Every hour I would fall

Whatever I'm thinking
She knows before I speak
And who's kidding who here
Without her I'm so weak

I turn up lost
She keeps it together
I hardly function
She makes me better

She gives me space
To act like a man
That girl knows me
Like the back of her hand

Hey, hey baby
Turn me into crazy
Waiting just to see that smile
Now I'm worried about my style

Hey, hey honey
My brain is acting funny
Used to drink just to feel right
Now I need just one night

I turn up lost
She keeps it together
I hardly function
She makes me better

She gives me space
To act like a man

I like playing cool
When the fellas are hanging with me
Cause they know the truth
Though the outside is all that they see

She pulls my strings
Ain't no doubt about it
I hold her close
Cause I just can't live without it

I turn up lost
She keeps it together
I hardly function
She makes me better

She gives me space
To act like a man
That girl knows me
Like the back of her hand

The back of her hand
The back of her hand
The back of her hand
