Deep in The Dark - Laura Branigan

(Falco/R. Ponger/Bill Bowersock)

Check it out, Joe
I'll tell you a secret
If you know where to keep it
And you promise not to tell
Got a tale or two
About a girl that you could have sworn you knew so well
It was years ago
Though it sounds like yesterday
You came on strong and she gave it all away
He had an angel's face
A fighter's grace
And an ace hidden up his sleeve
But never mind 'cos love is blind
And she needed to believe
His touch could fill
He held her safe from harm
If looks could kill
She'd have died there in his arms

Deep in the dark
The thunder in her heart
He told her every single lie
He swore he'd never told anyone before

Check it out, Joe
Now you wake up in the dead of night
And reach out to touch her hair
But the bed is empty, turn on the light
And she's not even there
Then a note she wrote
You read that thing and weep
'cos if you love someone
And never know what runs so deep

Deep in the dark
The thunder in her heart
She told you every single lie
She swore she'd never heard before
