Mickey Newbury - "The Last Question (In The Dead Of The Night)" lyrics

How can I feel so alive with you darlin'
In the dead of the night
Why do I reach out for you every mornin'
At the first sign of light

How could I not know you knew you were leavin'
How could I not realize
How could I not know you were pretending
Where did the truth lie in your eyes

Where does the truth lie in your eyes

Why do I feel so much love for you darlin'
Feel so much love deep inside
Oh why do I still feel alive with you darlin'
Here in the dead of the night

How could I not know you were only pretending
How could I not realize
How could I not know you knew you were leaving
Where did the truth lie in your eyes

Where did the truth lie in your eyes
In the dead of the night
