Breakfast In The
Middle Of The Night

               

Had a feeling you wouldn't be coming right home

when I left you it was still no surprise

had a feeling I'd be walking home alone

even before I looked into your eyes

 

You say

it's another breakfast in the middle of the night

it might be you holding someone else tight

and I finally feel better about us two now

I just wish you didn't have to lie

 

I saw you caressing his leg at the bar

and I saw you stop as I walked by

now you're leaving with him to feast in the dark

and I feel like I'm gonna let you try

 

          We've had all the talks about our lives together

          there've been a few wars about breaking apart

          I've aired my views on our love's stormy weather

          but I wonder what came from your heart

 

So I hope you feel better in the middle of the night

it's okay if you're holding someone else tight

it's something I've thought of but just talked about

and it just might make everything all right

 

And you say

it's another breakfast in the middle of the night

but it might be you holding someone else tight

I kind of feel better about us two now

I just wish you didn't have to lie

no no no

I just wish you didn't have to lie
