Lyrics of 22

English (Original)

I see 22, oh when I think of youLately, that's all I doDon’t you know that II’m always driving byWant to come home to you
Now I know, I've always been afraid to sayHow I feelBut this's got to change
Every time I’m with somebody I’m confusing him with youAnywhere I go reminds me of the things we used to doAnd I dream about our street where we kissed out of the blueat your house number 22
I see 22 it's like deja-vuBoy, if you only knewThis time, I messed it upBut I can't give you upYour face is all I've got
Oh I know, I've always been afraid to say how I feelBut this's got to change
Every time I’m with somebody I'm confusing him with youAnywhere I go reminds me of the things we used to doAnd I dream about our street where we kissed out of the blueat your house number 22
All alone tonightWishing you were laying by my sideSo I just keep on driving byTo pass the time
Every time I’m with somebody I’m confusing him with youAnywhere I go reminds me of the things we used to doAnd I dream about our street where we kissed out of the blueat your house number 22
OoohOoohOoohOooh
