(One, two, three, four, two, two, three four)

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 whose silhouette's on the shade
I couldn't hide the tears in my eyes

Ahh (ahh), ahh

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 my shock, 'you're on the wrong block'

Rushed down to your house with wings on my feet
Loved you like I'd never loved, you're my sweet
Vowed that you and I would be two silhouettes on the shade
All of our days, two silhouettes on the shade

Ahh (ahh), ahh
Ahh (ahh), ahh
Ahh (ahh), ahh..........
