I can’t think straight
I can’t think straight
I can’t think straight
I can’t think straight

When I’m leaving you’re arriving
When I’m down you are up
If I’m purple you are orange
Feels like we should just give up

If this feels so right
Don’t ring the alarm
If we dive too deep
You’ll be safe in my charm
I can’t live with you
You can’t live without
You’re driving me crazy
Make me want to shout,
“I can’t think straight”

You assume that this is just a phase
Guilty hearts can burn up in a blaze
Change your mind and maybe I’ll be kind
Until then I think you’ll make me go blind

I can’t think straight
Whenever you’re around (I can’t think straight)
I’m crazy as a clown (I can’t think straight)
I’m up above the clouds (I can’t think straight)
I can’t think straight (I can’t think straight)
And I can’t figure out (I can’t think straight)
If you are in or out (I can’t think straight)
We kiss and then you smile (I can’t think straight)
I can’t think straight

When I’m floating you are drowning
When I’m lost you are found
If I’m level you are slanted
When I’m here you’re not around

Spin out of control
With the words that you speak
Hang on to the edge
Of the touch that you seek
I can’t live with you
You can’t live without
You’re driving me crazy
Make me want to shout,
“I can’t think straight”

You assume that this is just a phase
Close your eyes and stumble through the maze
Change of plan I hope you find the time
Until then I think you’ll make me go blind

I can’t think straight
Whenever you’re around (I can’t think straight)
I’m crazy as a clown (I can’t think straight)
I’m up above the clouds (I can’t think straight)
I can’t think straight (I can’t think straight)
And I can’t figure out (I can’t think straight)
If you are in or out (I can’t think straight)
We kiss and then you smile (I can’t think straight)
I can’t think straight

Paradox, topsy-turvey, chase my tail, make me crazy
Zigzag, side to side, smoke and mirrors, love disguise
I see through you
Tell me not to
Think about you
I can’t help myself

You assume that this is just a phase
Guilty hearts can burn up in a blaze
Change your mind and maybe I’ll be kind
Until then I think you’ll make me go blind

I can’t think straight
Whenever you’re around (I can’t think straight)
I’m crazy as a clown (I can’t think straight)
I’m up above the clouds (I can’t think straight)
I can’t think straight (I can’t think straight)
And I can’t figure out (I can’t think straight)
If you are in or out (I can’t think straight)
We kiss and then you smile (I can’t think straight)
I can’t think straight
