Tony Martin – It's Better In The Dark lyrics

It's better in the dark
It's better in the dark
The light will just upset her
It's better in the dark

Her eyes will start to spark
Your lips will find their mark
You wanna hug and pet her
It's better in the dark

Oh the sun is the enemy of romance
In the daytime romantically there's no chance
You will find that the lady will care a lot
If you'll take where the sun is not

[Repeat CHORUS]

When the lights in the parlor are brightly lit
How can sweethearts do anything else but sit
All the world Thomas Edison helped a lot
Did he help the lovers
He did not!

[Repeat CHORUS]

[Repeat VERSE 1]

Hand in hand
They were strolling like lovers do
Beneath the street lamp
They started to fiddle and coo
When her father
Who noticed them from above
Shouted down and said
If you're in love

[Repeat CHORUS]

[Repeat VERSE 1]

It's better in the dark
It's better in the dark
