  • Layin' in the after glow
    I only wanna learn what you know
    But now you're leavin'
    How many hearts must you break
    And how many calls must I make

    But now you're leavin'
    In this world all that I choose has come unbearable
    But love is in your touch
    Ooh, it's killing me so much

    Ooh, only when you leave
    I'll need to love you
    And when the action has all gone
    I'm just a little fool enough to need you
    A fool enough too long
    Only when you leave, you'll leave in danger
    Ooh, I'll make sure that you pay
    So give a little passion to a stranger
    And take this soul away

    I only wanna make things last
    So how could this have gone so fast
    And now you're leavin'
    How many times must I learn
    It's only when you've gone that I burn

    And now you're leavin'
    In the end, all that is left has come unbearable
    It's hard to change your mind
    So leave it all behind

    Ooh, only when you leave
    I'll need to love you
    And when the action has all gone
    I'm just a little fool enough to need you
    A fool enough too long
    Only when you leave, you'll leave in danger
    Ooh, I'll make sure that you pay
    So give a little passion to a stranger
    And take this soul away

    Layin' in the after glow
    I only wanna learn what you know
    Ooh, but now you're leavin'
    How many hearts must you break
    How many calls must I make

    But now you're leavin'
    In this world all that I choose has come unbearable
    But love is in your touch
    Ooh, it's killing me so much

    Only when you leave
    I'll need to love you
    And when the action has all gone
    I'm just a little fool enough to need you
    A fool enough too long
    Only when you leave, you'll leave in danger
    Ooh, I'll make sure that you pay
    So give a little passion to a stranger
    And take this soul away

    Only when you leave, you'll leave in danger
    Ooh, I'll make sure that you pay
    So give a little passion to a stranger
    And take this soul away Writer/s: GARY KEMP
