Standing in yesterday's clothes
in someone else's apartment.
But baby, right down the hall
you hear it's just getting started.

You go to check your phone,
maybe hold off 'til evening.
You can't be feeling alone
when you don't know what you're feeling.

One midnight then another,
Like kisses from old lovers,
What becomes of this?
What becomes of this?

I see that look in your eyes
waiting to hear that it's over.
But if there's one thing I know
about you girl,
you keep your lovers close.
I keep my enemies closer.
I keep my enemies closer.
I keep my enemies closer.
