Protection lyrics

Night after night
I keep holding on
You say you love me
Then you leave me so lonely
Baby I dont believe a word youre sayin
I think its all some evil game youre playin

Still all day long all I do is think about you
You got me believin that I cant live without you
Well if you want it, heres my confession
Baby I cant help it, youre my obsession

Protection, thats what I need
I need protection, baby, from your love
Protection, thats what I need
I need protection, baby, from your love

I wait at home by the telephone
When I call your house, baby, youre not there
Knock on the door and I rush down the stairs
When I open up, baby, youre not there
When were together
When were together and you put your arms around me

You keep my mind
Forever, ever in doubt
You want me believin
That, baby, I cant live without

Protection, thats what I need
I need protection, baby, from your love
Protection, thats what I need
I need protection, baby, from your love

We stand alone, at my window
And stare out, at the shadows down below
I feel your fingers on my face
I want to stay, I want to run away

Protection, thats what I need
I need protection, baby, from your love
Protection, thats what I need
I need protection, baby, from your love
Protection
