  • (People, people, people)

    It's getting so lonely inside this bed
    Don't know if I should lick my wounds or say woe is me instead
    And there's an aching inside my head
    It's telling me you're better off alone
    But after midnight morning will come
    And the day will see if you will get some

    They say that girl ya know she act too tough tough tough
    Well it's 'til I turn off the light, turn off the light
    They say that girl you know she act so rough rough rough
    Well it's 'til I turn off the light, turn off the light
    And I say follow me follow me follow me down down down down
    'Til you see all my dreams
    Not everything in this magical world is quite what it seems

    I looked above the other day
    'Cause I think I'm good and ready for a change
    I live my life by the moon (by the moon)
    If it's high play it low, if it's harvest go slow and if it's full, then go
    But after midnight morning will come
    And the day will see if you're gonna get some

    They say that girl ya know she act too tough tough tough
    Well it's 'til I turn off the light, turn off the light
    They say that girl you know she act so rough rough rough
    Well it's 'til I turn off the light, turn off the light
    And I say follow me follow me follow me down down down down
    'Til you see all my dreams
    Not everything in this magical world is quite what it seems

    And I'm searching for things that I just cannot see
    Why don't you don't you don't you come and be with me
    I pretend to be cool with me, want to believe
    That I can do it on my own without my heart on my sleeve
    I'm running, I'm running, catch up with me life
    Or is it love that I'm looking to find
    It's all in me, can't you see, why can't you, why can't you see it's all in me, yeah
    All in me, yeah

    Where is your logic
    Turn of the light, turn off the light
    Who do you need
    Turn off the light, turn off the light
    And I say follow me follow me follow me down down down down
    Where can you turn
    'Til you see all my dreams
    Where is your logic
    Not everything in this magical world is quite what it seems
    Who do you need
    Follow me follow me follow me down down
    Turn off the light, turn off the light
    Follow me follow me follow me down down
    Turn off the light, turn off the light

    Where is your light, yeah
    Turn off the light, turn off the light
    Who do you need
    Where can you turn

  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnLoved the video - this song made me a Nelly Furtado fan. Her music is all the over place, hard to catergorize her genre.
  • Leah from Brooklyn, NyIn the techno dance version, this tune has a nearly unstoppable beat. Try it for a real treat!
  • Gerry Walsh from Melbourne, AustraliaRipper song and clip!
