(Carly Simon)

You say you're not worthy of me
But how do you know when you can't see
Your eyes where midnight catches fire
I can't describe this dizzy desire

Can you be so insecure
That you don't know what this grin is for
Do you think I always act this way
Silly and silent, and eager to stay
When you're holding me tonight
Holding me tonight

You think it's all a mistake
That I'm lost in a dream from which I'll wake up
There you'll be just another guy
You could never be but I dare you to try
When you're holding me
Holding me tonight

I walk into your room
You blush when I see it in a mess
So I undress and close my eyes
A room with a view
Is in the dark with you
But that should come as no suprise

It's not a matter of mind
The choice of the heart is a different kind
It's always been a mystery
When you walk into the room It happens to me
And when you're holding me
Holding me tonight
