J. Spinks, T. Lewis


She wakes me up in the middle of the night
When I'm rolling over - rolling over
She keeps on asking is there something on my mind - I know
She's getting close just a little too closer - and yet
Secrets are hard form me to hide
'Cos I never know what she might find
Telling her lies
Taken by surprise - taken by surprise yeah

She calls me up every minute of the day
It's like she's checking me over - always over my should and then
We talk and talk until there's nothing left to say
But she won't leave me alone every night
She never says what's on her mind
And the way it looks - well I know she ain't blind
Telling her lies
Taken by surprise - taken by surprise yeah

You know this game is the same
All the world over
But no one laughs when they're taking the blame
Over your should - taken by surprise

Can't close my eyes in case I talk in my sleep
Ooh I gotta lotta secrets that I know I wanna keep yeah
And she might even know what's going on
And it's all just an act when she says nothing's wrong
Like a disguise
Taken by surprise - taken by surprise
