  • Oh I, I just died in your arms tonight
    It must have been something you said
    I just died in your arms tonight

    I keep looking for something I can't get
    Broken hearts lie all around me
    And I don't see an easy way to get out of this
    Her diary, it sits by the bedside table
    The curtains are closed, the cats in the cradle
    Who would've thought that a boy like me could come to this

    Oh I, I just died in your arms tonight
    It must've been something you said
    I just died in your arms tonight
    Oh I, I just died in your arms tonight
    It must've been some kind of kiss
    I should've walked away, I should've walked away

    Is there any just cause for feeling like this?
    On the surface, I'm a name on a list
    I try to be discreet, but then blow it again
    I've lost and found, it's my final mistake
    She's loving by proxy, no give and all take
    'Cause I've been thrilled to fantasy one too many times

    Oh I, I just died in your arms tonight
    It must've been something you said
    I just died in your arms tonight

    Oh I, I just died in your arms tonight
    It must've been some kind of kiss
    I should've walked away, I should've walked away
    It was a long hot night
    She made it easy, she made it feel right
    But now it's over the moment has gone
    I followed my hands not my head, I know I was wrong

    Oh I, I just died in your arms tonight
    It must've been something you said
    I just died in your arms tonight
    Oh I, I just died in your arms tonight
    It must've been some kind of kiss
    I should've walked away, I should've walked away Writer/s: Nicholas Eede

  • Andrea from Sheffield We were actually together for 11 years, on and off. Our daughter is now a beautiful grown woman!
  • Sermonator from EarthWell, if you're going to have a one-night reunion and regret it afterward, what better way to get over it than to write a #1 song about it?
  • Loafy from NycI cant believe this all the song facts / comments on what could be the number 1, one hit wonder of the decade of one hit wonders. I know the problem. Weak video.
  • Seventhmist from 7th HeavenI always liked this song, which puts the guy in the position that songs more often reserve for the girl.
  • Thomas from TennesseeI swear to God it sounds like he is saying "I followed my hands to my head. I knew I was wrong. "
