This song is about a guy and a girl who doesn't feel any love for each other, they only feel lust. They want to be together during the night physically but they don't have any intention to be emotionally connected like when you have a social media, people get connected emotionally or those who have google plus, they are connected emotionally. They don't like each other mentally and emotionally because they only want to satisfy their physical desires for each other.

It's about cocaine. Cocaine was at its peak in the early 80s. "You are everywhere, but you are so hard to find."

It's so obvious that it's about drugs. Sad to say, the only reason I know this, is because I am too an addict and I feel this song completely. Until you've lived that life, you won't be able to relate to it, or understand it. He's pretty much dope sick, and will do anything to get high.

Drugs... My opinion is that it leans more towards heroin or an opiate because of how 'urgent' his need is. And some of the parts where he's talking about a girl is a reference to drugs as well.
Examples : 'you're everywhere, but you're so hard to find'
'I'm not looking for a love that'll last, I know what I need and I need it fast'

It's definitely referring to heroin. "U wanna fly don't want your feet on the ground. You stay up won't come down, got fire in your veins" she has sex to get money to get high and their both satisfied, just in different ways.

I believe this song is about a guy and a girl who are just sex buddies. They call each other when the feeling and urges of sex are "urgent" hence the name of the song!
