lyrics

Love is in the claws of a career
Shaken by discretion, stirred by fear
It ain't what you said, babe, it's your tone
Can we be alone?

Baby, put your fingers in my face
Everything is cool, there's no complaints
Just a little sin, and then, atone
Can we be alone?

Oooh, maybe your movement has mistaken me
Isn't it weird how it's shakin' me?

Instead of having coffee, stay in bed
Think of all the ways that rumors spread
Maybe it's a game, it's how I'm known
Can we be alone?

Some of us will wear a dozen rings
Some will get their kicks from smashing things
Some will get together, briefly bone
But everyone's alone

Oooh, maybe you're movement has me terrified
Isn't it weird how I shake inside?

Love is in the clause, it's every word
Generally speaking, it's preferred
if everything is hashed out on the phone
But can we be alone?

And now that I'm accustomed to your flair
and every little summer dress you wear,
I intend to find out how they're sewn
when we are alone

Oooh, maybe your movement makes me disappear
Isn't it weird how I'm shakin' here?

Along with your movement, baby
Alone with your movement, baby
