At the dark end of the street
That's where we always meet
Hiding in shadows where we don't be long
Living in darkness to hide our wrong
You and me at the dark end of the street
You and me

I know time is gonna take its toll
We have to pay for the love we stole
It's a sin and we know it's wrong
But our love keeps coming on strong
Tonight we'll meet at the dark end of the street
You and me

They're gonna find us, oh, they'll find us
They're gonna find us, they're gonna find us
Oooooh, some day
You and me at the dark end of the street
You and me

And when the daylight hour rolls around
And by chance we're both downtown
If we should meet, just walk on by
Ooooh darling, please don't you cry
Tonight we'll meet at the dark end of the street
You and me
