Well, it’s way past midnight
And there’s some people all around
Some on their way up
Some on their way down

The air burns and I’m tryin to think straight
And I don’t know how much longer I can wait
I’m your man
I’ve tried to recover the sweet love that we knew

You understand
That my heart can’t go on beating without you
Well your loveliness has wounded me
I’m reeling from the blow

I wish I knew what it was that keeps me loving you so
I’m breathin’ hard standin’ at the gate
Oh, but I don’t know how much longer I can wait
Skies are gray

I’m looking for anything that will bring a happy glow
Night or day
It doesn’t matter where I go anymore I just go
If I ever saw you comin’ I don’t know what I might do
