I remember the night you weren't at home
(had to work late is what I heard)
That's what you said
I can never forget the way it felt,
You needed some time to work it out,
That's what you said
And now I feel a fool.

'Cos late at night I call your name,
I'm wondering what for,
'cos I've seen those other guys
Sniffin' around your door.

Whatever happened to the words
'Lovers for all eternity?'
That's what you said,
I was your rome, you were my Juliet,
Eternally
That's what you said
And now I feel a fool.

'Cos late at night I hear your voice
Calling out my name,
Oh I know it's just a dream
But every night's the same.

I carried a torch for you, through the thick and thin
You know it don't seem right that I won't see you again
No no

Late at night I call your name,
I'm wondering what for,
'cos I keep seeing those other guys
Sniffin' around your door.

I carried a torch for you through the wind and rain
I'll never forget you, but I won't see you again
No no

I thought your friends all liked me
I thought I fitted in just right,
That's what you said.
Soon I'll be gone and you'll be free,
You can go find the things that you want.
That's what you said
And I won't feel a fool

'cos late at night I still call your name,
I'm wondering what for,
'cos I keep seeing those other guys
Sniffin' around your door.

What for?
