View Lyrics

Love sneaks in
When everything seems quiet,
Sets the bait
And like a fool you buy it.

Your famous self-possession’s
Vanished from your repertoire-
This is what can happen when you
Leave the door ajar…

And love sneaks in
And whispers to you sweetly
Silly words that change your life
completely.

You’re fumbling in the dark.
The master’s now the mark.
You’re out of luck
If love sneaks in on you.

The player has been nicely played
The mocker’s now the mocked-
That’s what tends to happen when
You leave yourself unlocked.

And love sneaks through
The usual defenses.
The sighs, the smirks
The state the old pretenses.

What’s gone is what you were.
What’s left is all a blur.
You’re stung, you’re stuck
For love snuck in with her.
