Mickey Newbury - "What Will I Do" lyrics

We would sweat and moan
Until the need in us was gone
In one anothers arms
All through the night
You would cry out my name
As we were drawn into the flames
What will I do now
Now that your gone

What will I do in the dead of the night
When she turns out the light
And she comes to me when she comes to me
Oh what will I do
Til the need in me subsides
Simply close my eyes and try to sleep

Oh there are nights I know
When the lights are way down low
I can feel you reaching out to me
So I close my eyes
And I let my memory fly
To a time and place with you
So long ago so long ago

Oh what will I do
In the dead of the night
When she turns out the light
When she comes to me when she comes to me
Oh what will I do
Til the need in me subsides
Simply close my eyes and try to sleep
And try to sleep and try to sleep
