Story behind the song
I thought folks on the make were in need of some better pickup lines. I didn't know if Brutal Honesty was an option--but thought it might be worth a shot.
Lyrics
[4/4, med. two-step] CUDDLE IN THE DARKNESS –J. Wrabek 1. I recognized those lonely eyes when I first came in here; They're the same ones that stare back at me each morning in the mirror; And that shiver looked familiar, when that couple passed you by– Like you realize you could live your life with Lonesome by your side. 2. There's a chill that's grown inside us, born of all those times alone; Sometimes y'just can't sleep at night if you do it on your own; Can we cozy up together? Maybe keep each other warm? It's been so long since we been held in someone else's arms. CHORUS: And I'll say the same sweet nothings that you've prob'ly heard before, And I promise that I'll hold your hand as we walk out the door; Ain't sayin' you're the one for me, ain't askin' you to stay– Just to cuddle in the darkness till the darkness goes away. 3. There's a little place just down the road where they don't know you or me; We can check in as a couple, like they do it on T.V.; Can't promise any fireworks, I think they've all been burned– But I can offer a little comfort, if I can get some in return. CHORUS: And I'll say the same sweet nothings that you've prob'ly heard before, And I promise that I'll hold your hand as we walk out the door; Ain't sayin' you're the one for me, ain't askin' you to stay– Just to cuddle in the darkness till the darkness goes away. 4. All that I'm suggesting is we partner for tonight; That chill of ours won't go away till someone holds us tight; Hey, I'll be yours if you'll be mine, until the break o' dawn– Let's pretend for just one night that we never sleep alone. CHORUS: And I'll say the same sweet nothings that you've prob'ly heard before, And I promise that I'll hold your hand as we walk out the door; Ain't sayin' you're the one for me, ain't askin' you to stay– Just to cuddle in the darkness till the darkness goes away.
