lyrics

What good is my body if you're not around?
What purpose worth having, mundane or profound?
I've tried standing up but I keep falling down
What good is my body if you're not around?

My heart isn't pumping, it don't make a sound
When it ought to be thumping as we paint the town
And my legs should be dancing as you twirl in a gown
What good is my body if you're not around?

I can't run my hands down the ridge of your hips
I can't bend my neck to savor your lips
I can't move a muscle to pull you in tight
You've been gone so long that nothing works right

Well we made a good team but now I'm the clown
Who warms up the bench while you run around
And I'd put up a fight but I'd lose the first round
What good is my body if you're not around?
What good is my body if you're not around?

I can't run my hands down the ridge of your hips
I can't bend my neck to savor your lips
I can't move a muscle to pull you in tight
You've been gone so long that nothing works right

So I'll be asleep till the sun goes down
And probably still sleeping when it comes back around
'Cause I can't see one reason to get off the ground
What good is my body if you're not around?
What good is my body if you're not around?
What good is my body if you're not around?
