Please allow me to try and explain
I'm living proof that man can change
I knew what I wanted
I knew how to get it

It didn't make it happy so I started again
What I wanted to be was a family man
But nature had some alternative plans
So I did without the lot put emotion on hold
And hoped my instincts would do what they were told

I want to know yeah
I want to know

But every now and then
Often at night
A particular feeling would surface in spite
Of what I told myself and tried to deny
I kept on asking the question: why?

[Chorus]
I want to know yeah
I want to know
You grow up and experience this
A total metamorphosis
It's all about change
It's a metamorphosis

With time and age I had to change
Cause my behaviour was getting strange
People on the street caught my eye
And I began to think I might be their kind of guy

The long-term suppression of an adolescent urge
Was in retreat and I was on the verge
Of falling in love or having fun
Time was running out
Something had to be done

I want to know yeah
I want to know
I want to know yeah
Tell me what's the reason

Where was I?
Laying down the law
Dancing with others
Out on the floor

Music and smoke
What did it mean?
Somebody spoke and I went into a dream
I had what I wanted

Madly in love
Nothing else mattered
This was enough
Questions were answered
Which used to perplex
In particular those about the big s.e.x.

I want to know yeah
I want to know
I want to know yeah
Tell me what's the reason

You grow up and experience this
A total metamorphosis
It's all about love
It's a metamorphosis

Dreaming is easy
Life is tough
I got the picture
The most important thing

Is not to end up bitter
Cause when you start to feel
Increasingly forlorner
Woomph! love comes
Right around the corner

It may not last
But here am I
Once a caterpillar
Now a butterfly
It can seem strange
But when you reminisce
It's all about change
It's a metamorphosis

[Chorus]

You grow up and experience this
A total metamorphosis
It's all about change
It's a metamorphosis

[Chorus]
