Lyrics


Until you've been beside a man

You don't know what he wants

You don't know if he cries at night

You don't know if he don't

When nothin comes easy

Old nightmares are real

Until you' ve been beside a man

You don't know how he feels


Once inside a woman's heart

A man must keep his head

Heaven opens up the door

Where angels fear to tread

Some men go crazy

Some men go slow

Some men go just where they want

Some men never go


Oh blame it on midnight

Ooh shame on the moon


Everywhere it's all around

Comfort in a crowd

Strangers faces all around

Laughin right out loud

Hey watch where your goin

Step light on old toes

Cause until you've been beside a man

You don't know who he knows


Oh blame it on midnight

Ooh shame on the moon

Oh blame it on midnight

Ooh shame on the moon
