Lyrics

For so long now, babe, I've been hurt
In every single love affair
Well it's not gonna happen, no not anymore
And tonight you're gonna find out how much I really care

chorus

I'm goin' through the motions
I like to try to look like I'm feelin' free
Nobody's in my way now
They're just everywhere that I want to be
I'm goin' through the motions
Practicing my moves and looking so good
Going through the motions
Don't let me be misunderstood

I'm not expecting smoke and miracles
I don't want Mr. Right
I just need to make very sure that it's
Absolutely positively over in one night

chorus

I'm goin' through the motions
I want to really really seem sincere
We're gettin' pretty close now
Just you and me and everyone here
I'm goin' through the motions
Moving 'cross the dance floor like I should
Going through the motions
Are my feelings understood

Notes

I had in mind a female vocal for this one -- Tina Turner could do it, or maybe someone a little less gritty-sounding so you're caught more off-guard by the cynical message...
