there's nothing more to say about this thing tonight
when we had met you smiled and said you'd like to keep things light
telling me how cool it was i needed time alone
when i was cuttin off them talks with you at night on the telephone

but now you're calling me
just like you said you wouldn't need to do only minutes before
you're reminding me
i continue loosing ground to you i better check upon the score
cuz we're playin tug-a-war
but i can see the rope is frayed
and i know i shouldn't stay
but babe you blew me away
with a gentle touch.
the one i needed way too much
and i feel it's emptiness
but it takes my breath
yeah i didn't my best
but i got one more lesson to learn
i'm still singin about you girl

a matted dress, a sweet caress, the damage done
the falling drapes leave no escape good God here comes the morning sun
as streams of light flow through the room the darkness trickles out
and the desire that has left us here we both forgot what that was all about

my spots to hide in the summertime you know them well
and i'll ask you where you're coming from though i know you're never gonna tell
but i can see by the way you move you've got somethin to say
and no matter how i leave you baby you're gonna be saying it anyway
