I heard you round about midnight
Slipping out of the bed
You thought that I was fast asleep
Heard your slippers in the midnight hallway
And I heard you rustling around
Trying not to make a sound
Heard the tap of your high heels
And the click of the lock on the door
Baby, I hope you know what you're doing
Heard you walking down the stairs
And I counted them one by one
One for each year that flew by
Heard you stop and turn back once
Then I thought that I heard you sigh
Or maybe it was the breeze
Heard the jingle of your keys
Then you stumbled and cursed the cat
That was sleeping on the stairs under the stars
Heard you open the car door softly
You must have been there half an hour
Turning it all round in your head
Were you sitting there waiting
For me to come down and call your name?
I wonder, were you waiting for me
Waiting for me, waiting for me, waiting for me
Then I heard the motor turn over
And I heard you driving away
Way before the break of day
Heard your engine for a long, long time
'Cause the night was so cold and quiet
As you made your getaway in the night
