"Tender Trap" as written by and Joan Anita Barbara Armatrading....
You come home after work
And the first thing that you do
Take me into your arms
And you find out how I've been
If the phone rings
Nobody answers
This is time is ours alone
We're lying peaceful in the tender trap
La la
We're lying peaceful in the tender trap
La la

I can't begin to prove how much I want you
You've got to know
That you make me feel much stronger
Than anyone has the right to
We're lying peaceful in the tender trap
La la
We're lying peaceful in the tender trap
La la

When you walk through the door from a hard day's work
And someone's there to make you forget the nine to five
When they throw their arms around you make you feel you're alive
What other heaven is there when that sweet voice says
If the phone rings nobody answers
That's when you know working all the hours that God sends pays the rent
But it don't cover all your needs you need a whole lot of love
La la
And when that love is real and makes you feel complete
Whoo
The world is right
La la

I can't begin to prove how much I want you
You've got to know
That you make me feel much stronger
Than anyone has the right to
We're lying peaceful in the tender trap
La la
We're lying peaceful in the tender trap
La la
We're lying peaceful in the tender trap
La la
