Object Of My Affection  (Album Version)

Object Of My Affection (Album Version)

Shawn Colvin

Jump into the night
Gas up and downshift
Cruise up the coast
On the FM drift
It's a crazy world
On the head of a pin
Some other time
Some other star
I might've cried but now
You only need to look so far
As the smile on my face
To see the shape I'm in
Try love in a bottle
Try love in a box
Play it all night long
Dance 'til you drop
And it sure got soul
It's not flesh and blood
I tried looking for love
But I guess it's true
You don't look for love
It's gonna look for you
Well you found me, honey
And you sound so good
You're the object
Of my affection
Not a dream
Or make believe
You're the object
Of my affection
Come to me
Now we see the women
In the photograph
Sweet Anne of mercy
And Sylvia Plath
For a thousand words
They for a life sentence
If we lined up all the girls
Who died in vain
We could walk on their heads
To hell and back again
But I got the big book
And antidepressants
You're the object
Of my affection
Not a phantom fantasy
You're the object
Of my affection
Come to me
You're the object
Of my affection
Not a toy with batteries
You're the object
Of my affection
Not a rescue remedy
You're the object
Of my affection
Come to me
