Well it was alright at midnight and you fell out at three
So I made you warm and stoked the dying fire
When it all came down this morning you were lying next to me
How sweet the wine of desire

Well we cheated on a friend and cheaters never win
Though the truth I know would be a small relief
I could never be the one to say
Her best friend took you down

Gonna run in the night, hide when ever it's light
Gonna run in the night like a thief

It's just no use to think it over I was blind but now I see
Well she's coming back and I know just what I'll do
If it comes right down to you leaving her or staying here with me
How sweet the memory of you?

Well we cheated on a friend and it looks like I lose again
I could never be the one to say
Her best friend took you down

I'd rather run in the night, hide when ever it's light
Gonna run in the night like a thief

Like a thief in the night, hide when ever it's light
Gonna run in the night like a thief
