This suspense is killing me

I can't stand uncertainty

Tell me now I've got to know

Whether you want me to stay or go

Love me or leave me

Or let me be lonely

You won't believe me
I love you only

I'd rather be lonely

Then happy with somebody else
You might find the nighttime
The right time for kissing

But nighttime is my time

For just reminiscing

Regretting
Instead of forgetting with somebody else

There'll be no one

Unless that someone is you

I intend to be independently blue

I want your love

But I don't want to borrow

To have it today
To give back tomorrow

For your love is my love

There's no love for nobody else

(bridge)

There'll be no one

Unless that someone is you

I intend to be independently blue

I want your love

But I don't want to borrow

To have it today
And to give back tomorrow

For your love is my love

There's no love for nobody else
