Lyrics

If you said that it was nice
Would you feel the same way twice
Or was it me who said there's no forever?
When the twilight's in the sky
There's a twinkle in your eye
God knows just why they seem to go together

When we're walking in the park
And staying out 'til dark
You know I've got to face the world tomorrow
If we feel a slight disgrace
It's well hidden in that case
The furthest thing from both our hearts is sorrow

You must know that wrong or right
I'm going to need your help tonight
I don't care what she says
We can do it anyway
Oh we can do it anyway

If you're standing in the light
Make sure I'm out of sight
I can't afford to be seen from your window
And the closeness that we feel
Is surely never real
It's what we are not what we'll be tomorrow

You must know that wrong or right
I'm going to need your help tonight
I can say without a doubt
It's going to be the end when she finds out
