(Sylvester / Clarke)
Picked up the phone called there's no one at home
You said you'd be there for my call

Did I do right by staying home tonight
All I know is I'm so alone

You made a date said you wouldn't be late
That's when my hopes started to rise

I didn't really know ya You said "I wanna show ya"
And I believed that look in your eyes

Well you gotta give me life
You gave me life
You gotta give me life
With that look in your eyes

Chorus

Went out on the street Just a chance we might meet
The chance well it came to order
I saw you standing there baby without a care
Giving the same line to a guy on the corner

Don't know your name
Don't know your game
It's such a shame Oh yeah

Repeat

Chorus
