Hey Wendy, let me in, I wanna be your friend,

             A                                 B
I wanna guard your dreams and visions.

Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims,

         A                                    B
And strap your hands across my engines.

Girl, I'm just a scared and a lonely rider,

But I gotta know how it feels,

I want to know if love is wild, baby,

    A                    B4
I want to know if love is real.
