i don’t need bells and whistles
i don’t need the latest pretty thing
with lots of buttons and flashing pictures
to keep me busy when you’re not around

all i need is for you to talk to me
like you used to, like you used to
all i need is for you to lie next to me
like you used to, like you used to

i don’t need bells and whistles
i don’t need designer anything
i’d settle for a sidewalk knock-off
but love, that’s got to be the real thing

all i need is for you to talk to me
like you used to, like you used to
all i need is for you to look at me
like you used to, like you used to

it’s the simple things that make or break
the difference between go or stay

i don’t need bells and whistles
i don’t need a fancy diamond ring
so they last forever and cut through steel
no shiny rock is gonna cut the silence in between

all i need is for you to talk to me
like you used to, like you used to
all i need is for you to want me
like you used to, like you used to

i don’t need bells and whistles
