I wake up and it's half past four
My baby she turns her face to the wall
I ain't gonna cry, but it ain't that funny no more

I pulled down a blanket made of stars
I wrap up my darling all nice and warm
I ain't gonna lie, but I don't want the truth no more

Everybody knows,
Ain't found this good since the Stone Age
When my undying love was just a phase
On her way to the club, I hear her say
"She'd dance the night away..."

Everybody needs some fleeting love

I follow my baby up the hotel stairs
And I'm lying into the back of her legs
I ain't gonna buy whatever it is they're selling no more

I wake up later and it's half past five
My baby she stretches, opens her eyes, she says
I ain't gonna lie, but I could get to like you babe

Everybody knows,
Ain't found this good since the Stone Age
When "my undying love" was just a phrase
On her way to the club, I heard her say
As we danced the night away
"Everybody needs some fleeting love"

Ain't found this good since the Stone Age
When my undying love was just a phase.

When she opened her eyes, I heard her cry
Saying, "Darling, don't you sigh
'Cause everybody needs some fleeting love"

    General CommentIt's "my undying love was just a phase" and one or maybe twice he changes phase to phrase.
    It's a reference to the concept of "fleeting/liquid love" which is a term coined by sociologist zygmund bauman. look it up!
