Track Name: Romance In The Dark
In the dark it’s just you and I
Not a sound, there’s not one sigh
Just the beat of my poor heart in the dark

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

But soon this dance will be ended
And your heart is going to be missed
Gee but I’m not pretending
Cause I swear it’s fun, it’s fun to be kissed

In the dark, now we will find
What the rest have left behind
Just let them dance, we’re going to find romance in the dark.

Cause they’re thru with me on account of you (C F C C7)
F7 Cº
Walking the streets night and day hoping to find you babe
C C7
Going from door to door
F7 Cº
I keep knocking but they won’t let me in
C A7 D7 G7
Cause you’re in there with your new love drinking your gin

I’m so downhearted, no place to go
Out in the rain, hail, sleet and the snow
I’m just wasting away on account of you (C F C G7)

I’m so downhearted, everywhere I go
Hard luck and trouble meet me at the door
I’m just wasting my time on account of you

I love you babe, always treated you kind
But your ways and actions make me lose my mind
Now tell me babe, please tell me
What have I done?

I took you in babe, right off the block
You was beat and raggedy as a mop
Now tell me babe, please tell me
What have I done?

You’re going to be sorry you treated me this way
You’re going to want me babe, I’ll be far away
Now tell me babe, please tell me
What have I done?

Goodbye babe I’m leaving you
You haven’t did babe, what you should do
Now tell me babe, please tell me
What have I done?
