lyrics

well hey there, lonely
i know you know me
my one and only
my last shot in the dark

can’t you see me
out in the alley
shadows around me
my hope falling apart

i thought i lost you
in that long-lost blue
sky that fell through
my heavens
oh, my heavens come undone

and do they love you?
like i loved you
hair done up and new shoes
sweet-talkin’ tricks
red lips just havin’ fun

you know you
look like
a photograph
you take my breath
i want it back
when you go it’s like a heart attack
makes me buckle at my knees

darling, you
don’t know what you do to me
and you
never could change
it’s a shame
i was a fool to see
you again

oh, every time i
make up my mind, my
new eyes go blind
desire bring me down
right back down to the start

you keep me holding
to my devotion, yeah
my life wide open
for your ready-to-walk
hard-knock
unbreakable heart

you know i
burn like a cigarette
in your wandering, squandering silhouette
then you light me up
and i forget
baby please don’t, please don’t leave

darling, you
don’t know what you do to me
and you
never could change
it’s a shame
i was a fool to see
you again

and i hopped a train
it took me all around
i looked this curving earth all
up and down
and i thought of you

so hey there, lonely
i know you know me
my one and only
my last shot in the dark

darling, you
don’t know what you do to me
and you
never could change
oo
go ahead and ruin me
my hope, my light, my should-have-known-right-from-the-start
that you
don’t know what you do to me
and you
never could change
oo
go ahead and ruin me
my hope, my light, my should-have-known-right-from-the-start

my shot in the dark
