Oh I, I just died in your arms tonight
It must have been something you said
I just died in your arms tonight

I keep looking for something I can't get
Broken hearts lie all around me
And I don't see an easy way to get out of this
Her diary it sits on the bedside table
The curtains are closed, the cats in the cradle
Who would've thought that a boy like me could come to this

Oh I, I just died in your arms tonight
It must've been something you said
I just died in your arms tonight
Oh I, I just died in your arms tonight
It must've been some kind of kiss
I should've walked away, I should`ve walked away

Is there any just cause for feeling like this?
On the surface I'm a name on a list
I try to be discreet, but then blow it again
I've lost and found, it's my final mistake
She's loving by proxy, no give and all take
'cos I've been thrilled to fantasy one too many times

Oh I, I just died in your arms tonight
It must've been something you said
I just died in your arms tonight
Oh I, I just died in your arms tonight
It must been some kind of kiss
I should`ve walked away, I should've walked away

It was a long hot night
She made it easy, she made it feel right
But now it's over the moment has gone
I followed my hands not my head, I knew I was wrong

Oh i, i just died in your arms tonight it must have been somehting you said, i just died ni your arms tonight
Oh i, i just died in your arms tonight it must have been some kind of kiss
I should have walked away, i should have walked away

    It is about a man player who gets around with lots of girls. He has been ‘playing’ with a girl not having any serious intentions towards her, underestimating her, thinking of her as someone not important and taking her for granted never even imagining what effect she would have on him. When he finally gets her in bed he actually ends up making love to her rather than having sex as he planned. She invokes unexpected feelings in him and he realizes in shock that he is madly in love with her, that he is overwhelmed by strong feelings of love, joy, confusion, ecstasy. Consequently he gets really scared of his feelings but it is already too late…he realizes that he is now exposed and vulnerable and finds himself in a completely unknown situation, something that he has always been afraid of falling in love…he is shocked by the realization of his own feelings and facing his deepest fears or as he says “who would've thought that a boy like me could come to this”…
