"Left In The Dark" as written by and Jim Steinman....
You don't have to sneak in the door
Just come on into the room
I've been lying in our bed in the dark all alone
And I've been waiting, I've been waiting for you

There's been no reason to move
It's been as still as a tomb
I needed you oh, so badly tonight
But I guess you had better things to do

I should have known that it was coming to this
But I must have been blind
I bet you still got a trace of his love in your eyes
And you still got his eyes on your mind

You swore you'd be with me at seven o'clock
Now it's a quarter to three
And whatever you got and whoever it was
I guess you couldn't get it from me

I know that you love me, there's no need to talk
I see the look in your eyes and I got the proof
And there are no lies on your body, so take off your dress
I just want to get at the truth

I know that you love me, there's no need to talk
I see the look in your eyes and I got the proof
And there are no lies on your body, so take off your dress
I just want to get at the truth

And there are so many things that I just got to know
You tell me who, you tell me where you tell me when
But don't tell me now, I don't need any answers tonight
I just need some love so turn out the lights
And I'll be left in the dark again

I just need some love so turn out the lights
And I'll be left in the dark again
I just need some love so turn out the lights
And I'll be left in the dark again

Left in the dark again
I should have known that it was coming to this
But I must have been blind
I bet you still got a trace of his love in your eyes
And you still got his eyes on your mind

You swore you'd be with me at 7 o'clock
Now it's a quarter to three
And whatever you got and whoever it was
I guess you couldn't get it from me
I guess you couldn't get it from me

But down in my soul, down in my soul
I know - I know that you love me, there's no need to talk
I see the look in your eyes and I got the proof
And there are no lies on your body, so take off your dress
I just want to get at the truth

There are so many things that I just got to know
You tell me who you tell me where you tell me when
But don't tell me now, I don't need any answers tonight
I just need some love so turn out the lights
And I'll be left in the dark again
I just need some love so turn out the lights
And I'll be left in the dark again

I just need some love so turn out the lights
And I'll be left in the dark again
I just need some love so turn out the lights
And I'll be left in the dark again
I just need some love so turn out the lights
And I'll be left in the dark again
I just need some love so turn out the lights
And I'll be left in the dark again

Left in the dark again

    General CommentThis songs means a lot to me - I made my comments at the Meat Loaf Version (after all, Meat Loaf is the better singer).
    I am wondering about the spoken parts. I now the introduction, but the part at the end is not contained on my CD - was that only on Vinyl?

    General Comment...Sorry I always prefer Jim's songs over Meat's as Jim wrote them! ML keeps pilfering Steinman's collection! If you want to her a classic Steinman album then listen to Pandoras Box/Original Sin!
