By default by design
Time after time
Maybe you earned it,
Maybe you spurned it
But you got it...
Yes, you got it

Call it attraction or charm
Sound the alarm
Maybe you earned it,
Maybe you spurned it
But you got it...
Yes, you got it

Breaking hearts your speciality?
Why did you ever have to come so close to me
Was it love or morbid curiosity?
Either way I'd say that love's a possibility
Come a little closer,
Let me see you in close detail
The object of my affections
Walked off in the other direction

By default by design
Time after time
Maybe you earned it,
Maybe you spurned it
But you got it...
Yes, you got it

Call it attraction or charm
Sound the alarm
Maybe you earned it,
Maybe you spurned it
But you got it...
Yes, you got it

Modern day Romeo's, Modern day Juliet's
Are selling their love for a packet of cigarettes
Still I remember the day that we first met...
And yet so far, so good
So what else can we ever expect?
Come a little closer, let me see you in close detail
The object of my affections walked off in the other direction

By default by design
Time after time
Maybe you earned it,
Maybe you spurned it
But you got it...
Yes, you got it

Call it attraction or charm
Sound the alarm
Maybe you earned it,
Maybe you spurned it
But you got it...
Yes, you got it
