Lyrics

There's one more thing, come inside, no I'm all alone
Danny isn't here today
She said she had to get away
It's on your right just by the telephone
She promised that she'd try and ring
So far I haven't heard a thing
I'm glad you came round though
There's something I must know

You shook your head and you walked away
I think you'd maybe had a row
I know you wouldn't leave him now
But the things you said as you turned my way
The look that came into your eyes
It kind of took me by surprise
And you can't have not known
I'd be here on my own

Stay all night, I dare you
Look who is going to know?
I can't believe you want to go
Yes, all right I scare you
But you're just as bad as me
And I know where I'd rather be

Are you calling John? Well tell him anything
Look how we tremble when we kiss
One day soon we'll laugh at this
But just tonight we've got everything
Stop listening for the door
I told you where she went before
Nothing can go wrong
If you're not here too long

Just stay all night, I dare you
Look who is going to know?
I can't believe you want to go
Yes, all right I scare you
But you're just as bad as me
I know where I'd rather be
