Took a walk and passed your house late last night  All the shades were pulled and drawn way down tight  From within, the dim light cast two silhouettes on the shade  Oh what a lovely couple they made    Put his arms around your waist, held you tight  Kisses I could almost taste in the night  Wondered why I'm not the guy who's silhouette's on the shade  I couldn't hide the tears in my eyes    Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah...  Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah...    Lost control and rang your bell, I was sore  Let me in or else I'll beat down your door  When two strangers who have been two silhouettes on the shade  Said to myself "you're on the wrong block"    Rushed out to your house with wings on my feet  Loved you like I'd never loved you my sweet  Vowed that you and I would be two silhouettes on the shade  All of our days, two silhouettes on the shade    Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah...  Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah...
