Phil Collins - In My Lonely Room Lyrics

Every single time
You take me out with you
(Out with you)
You always flirt around
(Flirt around)
With someone new

But I never criticize
The tearful things you do
(Things you do)
'Cause I'm so afraid
(So afraid)
Of losing you

But in my lonely room
Tears I don't have to hide
'Cause I just lock my door
And let myself go and
Lay right, lay right down and cry

Every place we go
People are whispering
(Whispering)
About your flirting ways
(Flirting ways)
And it hurts me so to hear

But in the public's eye
I just push behind
(Push behind)
All my hurt inside
(Hurt inside)
And pretend I don't mind

But in my lonely room
Tears I don't have to hide
In my lonely room
Tears I don't have to hide
In my lonely, in my lonely room
Tears I don't have to hide
