Rainy night in the city
And you saw the lights
What a pity
It started in a movie queue
You got me drunk
You got me stoned
You had me talking and thinking
Like a clone
You fed me lies
And you knew why
But when the lights came on
You left me high and dry

Up against the wall
(You had me)
Up against the wall
Up against the wall
(Now I got you)
Up against the wall

You showed me how to boogie
You showed me how to swing
And when I asked the question
You showed me how to sting
You had me screwed
You had me creamed
You had me living in a pigeon hole of someone else's dream
You made me laugh
You made me cry
But when the lights came on
You left me high and dry
