Midnight And her porchlight's on The signal That her man is gone She'll open her back door wide I'll slip down the alley, then slip inside She's waiting Just inside the door In perfume Probably nothing more She'll greet me with her arms spread wide Hit by the darkness, we'll fly, fly, fly Standing here I feel just like a criminal Returning to the seen of the crime Every time that we steal these loving hours We promise that it will be the last time (Guitar solo) Sneak out Just before the dawn Knowing that we've done her man wrong He's out working while we're at plays And my conscious hounds me The whole long day Mmmmm Sun down My blood starts to stir All my thoughts go back to her At midnight my guilt will ease And I'll be watching her porchlight Begging please, please, please Standing here I feel just like a criminal Returning to the seen of the crime, yeah, yeah, yeah And every time that we steal these loving hours When we're stealing, when we're stealing it We promise that it will be the last ti
me, yeah (Guitar outro)
