Lyrics:
Will you risk your reputation? - I don't know
You just don't know what you're saying - any more

You know beggars can't be choosers - and it's fair
We may win, we may be losers
I don't care, no, no, no

Oh baby, I just can't stand another lonely night
So come over and save me
Save me from another lonely night

I hear every word you're saying - they're all lies
But with every breath you're taking
You're thinking of ways to say good night

Oh baby, I just can't stand another lonely night
So come over and save me
Save me from another lonely night
