REPEAT OUTRO TO FADE/END

You are all the woman
I need, and baby you know it,
You can make this beggar a king
A clown or a poet.
I'll give you all that I own.
You've got me standing in line
Out in the cold, pay me some mind.

Bend me, shape me
Anyway you want me,
Long as you love me, it's all right
Bend me, shape me
Anyway you want me,
You got the power to turn on the light.

Everybody tells me
I'm wrong to want you so badly,
But there's a force driving me on,
I follow it gladly.
So let them laugh I don't care,
Cause I got nothing to hide,
All that I want is you by my side.

Bend me, shape me
Anyway you want me,
Long as you love me, it's all right
Bend me, shape me
Anyway you want me,
You got the power to turn on the light...
