lyrics

I'm going to knit myself a sweater.
A sweater that will keep me warm at night.
Just how many days here must I weather?
Just biding my time...
'cause when I call you on the phone,
I'm still lost, I'm still alone.
Who's going to make it right? (Oooh wah ooh)
Who's going to make it right? (Oooh wah ooh)

I'm going to write myself a letter.
A letter that will make me feel alright.
I'll read it to myself five times or seven.
But I can't deny
I'm going to need a little more than just some thought that I adore to keep me warm at night. (Oooh wah ooh)
To keep me warm at night. (Oooh wah ooh)

Nine days don't amount to much when you cross them off a wall.
And I thought I was out of luck 'til you came along and made me fall.
Now there's nothing more to say, since you left and gone away.
And I just don't think I'll get through the night.

Because I need a little more than just some thought
that I adore to keep me warm at night. (Oooh wah ooh)
Oh keep me warm at night. (Oooh wah ooh)

Because I need a little more than just some thought that I adore to keep me warm at night. (Oooh wah ooh)
Oh keep me warm at night. (Oooh wah ooh)
