I bet you I’d be a better ghost than you
‘Cause no one seems to notice when I’m in the room

Except you do, the one who invited me into
This voodoo, pins and needles all the way through

I’m like a marionette and you’re in control
And I’m scared to death I won’t make it home

Because you hold the keys so please don’t be cold
And when you push and you pull it takes a toll on my heart and my soul

It’s hard to tell if your motives are evil
So I’m sittin’ on pins and needles all night long

Before you wouldn’t even give me time of day
So I don’t know why I didn’t think this right away

Yeah, I say two can play at that game
But when I hear your name I still feel the same, I need you, babe

And then a mutual lack of attention ensues
And the sexual tension gets me into the mood

And I got nothin’ to lose, no excuse not to make a move
And I think pretty soon the Earth is gonna start to circle the moon

She tasted like sweet southern Creole
But she had me on pins and needles all night long
