Terence Trent D'arby – What Shall I Do? lyrics

If you leave my dream
Will you turn out the light
So my eyes won't see
That my fantasy is escaping me for reality
Shall I tell her
That she's the spring
Arriving on wings
Shall I tell her
That I hear our hearts
Our whispering
And the words I overhear
As you draw near

What shall I do?
If you won't run away with me forever
What shall I do?
What shall I do?
The only thing that time will change
Is whether
I can retrieve
My heart if you leave

When I kissed your lips
It's as if I've been hit
By a melody
There have been no regrets
Though I've placed all my bets
On your memory
Shall I tell her
That she's the glow
That my heaven knows
Shall I tell her
That she's the gleam
That powers my dream
And by the flame
That floats between our eyes
I realize

What shall I do?
If you won't run away with me forever
What shall I do?
What shall I do?
The only thing that time will change
Is whether
I can be seen
With you in my dream

As the sunset fades
And with moonlight trades
Tender harmonies
Shall I tell her
That I can see
The woman she'll be
Shall I tell her
That I'm now alive
Instead of surviving
'Cause if I lay with her
I stay with her

What shall I do?
If you won't run away with me forever
What shall I do?
What shall I do?
The only thing that time will change
Is whether
I can retrieve
My heart if you leave
