How sweet the memory of you
Well we cheated on a friend and it looks like I lose again
I could never be the one to say

Her best friend took you down
I'd rather run in the night hide when ever it's light
Gonna run in the night like a thief
Like a thief in the night hide when ever it's light
Gonna run in the night like a thief
