Shirley Horn – In The Dark lyrics

In the dark, in the dark, just you and I
Not one sound, not one sigh
Just the beat of my poor heart in the dark

In the dark, in the dark, I get such a thrill
When he presses his fingertips upon my lips
And he begs me to please be still in the dark

Soon, this dance will be endin'
And you're gonna be missed
Gee, but I'm not pretendin'
But I swear it's fun, it's fun to be kissed

In the dark, in the dark we're gonna find
What the rest have left behind
We're gonna dance, we're gonna find romance in the dark
Just let them dance, we're gonna find romance in the dark
