  • Couldn't sleep a wink last night
    Oh how I'd love to hold you tight
    They say you have a secret life
    Made sacrifice your key to paradise
    Never mind, take the world by storm
    Just boogaloo a rhapsody divine
    Take a sweet girl just like you
    How nice if only we could bill and coo
    I may seem a fool to you for everything I say or think or do
    How could I apologies for all those lies
    The world may keeps us far apart but up in heaven, angel
    You can have my heart
    Diamonds may be your best friend
    But like laughter after tears
    I'll follow you to the end Writer/s: BRYAN FERRY
