I been watchin' you watchin' me
I could feel your eyes from way across the room
But now that I'm holdin' you close I can see
Ain't no way I'm gonna get around you
I won't tell you, I don't need you tonight
I won't pretend, I ain't burnin' inside
Your skin glowin' soft in the silver moonlight
The shadows where the promises hide
The bittersweet taste of your kiss
It's all more than I can resist

But if you're thinkin' 'bout breakin' my heart
You might as well just pick up your little black dress and go
Somebody else already tore it apart
And I thought you should know

Maybe this is all that you want
Maybe you're just as lonesome as me
A shoulder that you can cry on
A warm safe place you can be
Someone to call in the middle of the night
When the ghosts in your bedroom won't rest you
Two arms to hold you tight
I promise that I'll do my best
To give you everything I got to give
Keep your secrets as long as I live

But if you're thinkin' 'bout breakin' my heart
You might as well just pick up your little black dress and go
Somebody else already tore it apart
And I thought you should know

If you're thinkin' 'bout breakin' my heart
You might as well just put that little black dress on and go
Somebody else already tore it all apart
And I thought you should know

If you're thinkin' 'bout breakin' my heart
You might as well just pick up your little black dress and go
Somebody else already tore it apart
And I thought you should know
