"The Big Exit" as written by Thomas Michael Smith, Christopher Dominic Urbanowicz, Russell Leetch and Edward Owen Lay....
Eyes permeate my skin,
An alcoholic din, fills the room we're in
Girl, I think it's time we leave,
like a thief on Christmas Eve,
Take and you shall receive

No need to ask, you already know the way I feel inside.

Once we're amongst the shadows, see how much our love grows,
reflected in shop windows,
I love you as my blood flows,
as the rain ruins my best clothes,
you're a secret only I know.

No need to ask, you already know the way I feel inside.
No need to ask, you already know the way I feel inside.

Damn the passing hours, damn the summer flowers,
They took what once was ours, x5

No need to ask, you already know the way I feel inside,
No need to ask, you already know the way I feel inside.

They took what once was ours, (repeat)

No need to ask, you already know the way I feel inside,
No need to ask, you already know the way I feel inside.

    General CommentThink it's about the hurt of somebody who feels strongly for somebody but the feelings are not mutual.

    The 'they took what once was ours' part makes me think it could be about a relationship that has ended due to the actions of others.
