Wide awake in the middle of the night I wonder how she's feelin' Is it just a trick of the light Or is her ceiling peeling?
She's sitting up in bed, shakin' her head At a copy of "true confessions" Ooh, it must seem like a fairy tale To a woman of her profession
[Chorus:] But was I all right? (was I all right?) Did I take you to the height of ecstasy? Was I all right? (was I all right?) Did a shadow of emotion cross your face Or was it just another trick of the light? [Repeat]
Come on, tell me What's a nice girl like you doin' in a place like this? They don't make girls like you no more And I'd like to get to know you On closer terms than this But I guess you've heard it all before
Lady of the night Won't you steal away with me? Lady of the night Won't you steal away with me?
The money's lyin' on the floor, she looks at me Shakes her head and sighs Out of time, out the door Red light shinin' in my eyes
