Late at night

Late at night
when the feeling gets to hard to fight
he reaches for the phone
then stops himself afraid that he may find she's not alone

Late at night
she lies awake and holds her pillow tight
and cries his name out loud
but she would never ever call
the Lady's much to proud

two lost and lonely people
living apart and belonging together
regretting that they let each other go ohhhh
two sad and starving people
giving up the chance of forever
never letting one and other know
they still need each other so

late at night
waiting out the hours till its light
they know how wrong they've been
but both of them are caught up in believing
reaching out means giving in
so he hopes that he'll stop hurting
and she prays she'll be alright
and they both wait for the morning
late at night

two foolish frightened people
giving up a chance at forever
never letting one an other know
they still want each other so

late at night
waiting out the hours till its light
they know how wrong they've been
but both of them are caught up in believing
reaching out means giving in
and so he settle down to drinking
she takes another pill to keep from thinking
and neither makes a move to make it right
as they both wait for the morning
late at night
