"Part-Time Lover (Stevie Wonder cover)" as written by Stevie Wonder, Alex Greggs, Bradley Daymond Ralph and Y ....
Call up, ring once, hang up the phone.
To let me know you made it home.
Don't want nothing to be wrong with part-time lover.

If she's with me I'll blink the lights.
To let you know tonight's the night.
For me and you my part-time lover.

We are undercover passions on the run,
Chasing love up against the sun.
We are strangers by day, lovers by night.
Knowing it's so wrong, feeling so right.

If I'm with friends and we should meet.
Just pass me by, don't even speak.
Know the word's "discreet" when part-time lovers.

But if there's some emergency.
Have a male friend to ask for me.
Then she won't seem to be my part-time lover.

We are undercover passions on the run,
Chasing love up against the sun.
We are strangers by day, lovers by night.
Knowing it's so wrong, feeling so right.

I've got something that I should tell.
Last night someone rang our doorbell.
It was not you, part-time lover.

And then a man called our exchange.
But did not want to leave his name.
Two can play the game of part-time lovers.

We are undercover passions on the run.
Chasing love up against the sun.
We are strangers by day, lovers by night.
Knowing it's so wrong, feeling so right.

    General Comment“I just had a flashback of my youth which I previously didn’t remember. While I was in the bathroom I thought I heard you say something. I think that in all the possible noises that the human ear can hear, laughter, music, the sound of the ocean on rocks in the middle of the night, the most beautiful sound that exists is the voice of someone you care about more than life itself saying ‘I Love You’.

    I feel so sick. I made myself come to work today after having yesterday off. Oh and I’m thinking about going into Nursing in University to become a mental health / psychiatric nurse. It’s true that I am anything but perfect. I guess you have to take what you can get.

    I admire you in some ways, I just don’t trust people and everyone I know is a no good drunkard. The holidays, in particular, are going to be a mess. I just feel so empty inside. I just feel so empty. I just feel so.. I just feel… I just.”
