She says, I'm getting that lonely sinking feeling
You know what I mean?
With his hand on her back he's thinking
Where does that leave me?

Just when I think I've uncovered the secret
To peace and tranquility
That lonely sinking feeling
Creeps up on me

He says, I'm seeing those doubt filled questioning eyes
I can't believe it's true
With her head in her hands she sighs
'It's me, not you'

Just when I thought that I'd discovered the joy
Of loving one so completely
That lonely sinking feeling
Creeps up on me

Here in this silent room we wait on ancient ritual
Staring at our hearts as if we were two caged animals
If I am the first to unlock those rusty doors
Will I be the first found bleeding on the floor?

She says, I'm getting that lonely sinking feeling
You know what I mean?
With his hand on her back he's thinking
Where does that leave me?

Just when I think I've uncovered the secret
To peace and tranquility
That lonely sinking feeling
Creeps up on me

Just when I thought that I'd discovered the joy
Of loving one so completely
That lonely sinking feeling
Creeps up on me

That lonely sinking feeling
Creeps up on me
That lonely sinking feeling
Creeps up on me
That lonely sinking feeling
Creeps up on me
