Left in the Dark

Where did she touch you? How did it feel?
Why did you let it begin?
What did she whisper and what did it mean?
And where did you think it will end?
How long did it last? Do you think it’ll stop?
Did you get to try anything new?
How good was she, honestly? Where did you go?
And who made the very first move…?

You don’t have to sneak in the door
Just come on into the room
I’ve been lying in our bed in the dark all alone
And I’ve been waiting–I’ve been waiting for you

There’s been no reason to move
It’s been as still as a tomb
I needed you oh so badly tonight
But I guess you had better things to do

I should have known that it was coming to this
But I must have been blind
I bet you still got a trace of her love in your eyes
And you still got her eyes on your mind…

You swore you’d be with me at 7 o‘clock
Now it’s a quarter to 3!
And whatever you’ve got and whoever it was
I guess you couldn’t get it from me
Whatever you’ve got and whoever it was
I guess you couldn’t get it from me…

I know that you love me
There’s no need to talk
I see the look in your eyes and I got the proof

And there are no lies on your body
As I see you undress
Ooh–I just want to get at the truth

I know that you love me
There’s no need to talk
I see the look in your eyes and I got the proof

And there are no lies on your body
[As] I watch you undress
I just want to get at the truth

And there are so many things that I’ve just got to know:
You tell me who!
You tell me where!
You tell me when!

But don’t tell me now–I don’t need any answers tonight
I just need some love, so turn out the lights
And I’ll be left in the dark again
I just need some love, so turn out the lights
And I’ll be left in the dark again
I just need some love, so turn out the lights
And I’ll be left in the dark again

Left in the dark again....

I should have known that it was coming to this
But I must have been blind
I bet you still got a trace of her love in your eyes
And you still got her eyes on your mind...

You swore you’d be with me at 7 o‘clock
Now it’s a quarter to 3!
And whatever you’ve got and whoever it was
I guess you couldn’t get it from me
I guess you couldn’t get it from me

But down in my soul, down in my soul I know–

I know that you love me
There’s no need to talk
I see the look in your eyes and I got the proof

And there are no lies on your body
[As] I watch you undress
Oooh, I just want to get at the truth…

And there are so many things that I’ve just got to know:
You tell me who!
You tell me where!
You tell me when!

(don’t tell me baby tonight)

But don’t tell me now–I don’t need any answers tonight
I just need some love, so turn out the lights
And I’ll be left in the dark again
I just need some love, so turn out the lights
And I’ll be left in the dark again
I just need some love, so turn out the lights
And I’ll be left in the dark again
I just need some love, so turn out the lights
And I’ll be left in the dark again
I just need some love, so turn out the lights
And I’ll be left in the dark again
I just need some love, so turn out the lights
And I’ll be left in the dark again

Left in the dark again....
