I don’t need glasses to catch his passes
I hang from his every line
I try to cover my feelings for him
Then his eyes meet mine

Despite the fact that I’m involved
His words undress my resolve
If my home is so happy
Why does he unravel me?

Bring me a sweater for my naked heart
My body’s shaking ‘cause I’m temped by the dark
Bring me a sweater for my naked heart
‘Cause I’m out in the cold, and I don’t want anybody to know

My stomach’s in knots that won’t seem to ease
The perfect unknown is such a tease
These fires are too much for me to bear
I need water, and he seduces me with air


I beg for answers from the sky above
But I found them inside me, they’re inside me

Reorganized my shoes today
Brought the dry cleaning home
Cooked fresh dinner for my man
Ran us a bath and turned off the phone
