lyrics

Oh how still the night
So pained and polite
I lie awake
I lie awake
I lie and ache

I know your arms, your legs, your hips your waist
Your mouth, your tongue, your lips, your taste
I know every muscle, corpuscle and nerve
Each line, crease and curve
Every speckle, freckle, blemish and mark
I know my way round your body in the dark
Every hollow, sigh, breath and swallow
But now there’s a stranger in my bed

I know your shape, kissed the nape of your neck so many times
Thought I’d be able to read any tell tale trouble signs
A change of mood or distant stare
Sense barriers which before weren’t there
Perhaps I’ve been too comfortable, too blazé to say
Is everything between us still ok?
Once I knew what went on inside your head
But now there’s a stranger in my bed

Oh how still the night
So pained and polite
I lie awake
I lie awake
I lie and ache
