Duran Duran – Keep Me In The Dark lyrics

Hen the evening's sunlight fingers
Stretch across the floor
Cover up your eyes with feathers
Softly close the door

Take me in your heavy lips
Take me where the shadows slide
And with your blindfold secrets
Tie me fast and loose
The lacy intrigue of this weekend
Should not be abused

You could take me where you want
Could you take me all the time

Away yeah...wait a little longer
Don't go too far
I wouldn't like
I wouldn't like you keeping me in the dark

Tender is the truce I'm tasting
But watching you dictates
Heady nights of sleepless wasting
A face I can't escape

We could wave the world goodbye
To all of the boys cheerio



Help me now cause I'm slipping deeper
Tell me what to say
When without words you draw me closer
Each time you turn away

Something inside you cries
But is it something I'll never find


Away yeah...wait a little longer before we go to far
I wouldn't like
I wouldn't like to think you were keeping me in the dark
