    Sleeping With The Television On

    I've been watching you waltz all night Diane
    Nobody's found a way behind your defenses
    They never notice the zap gun in your hand
    Until you're pointing it and stunning their senses

    All night long, all night long
    You'll shoot 'em down because you're waiting for somebody good to come on
    All night long, all night long
    But you'll be sleeping with the television on

    You say you're looking for someone solid here
    You can't be bothered with those `just for the night' boys
    Tonight unless you take some kind of chances dear
    Tomorrow morning you'll wake up with the white noise

    All night long, all night long
    You're only standing there 'cause somebody once did somebody wrong
    All night long, all night long
    But you'll be sleeping with the television on

    Your eyes are saying talk to me, talk to me
    But your attitude is "don't waste my time"
    Your eyes are saying talk to me, talk to me
    But you won't hear a word 'cause it just might be the same old line

    This isn't easy for me to say Diane
    I know you don't need anybody's protection
    I really wish I was less of a thinking man
    And more a fool who's not afraid of rejection

    All night long, all night long
    I'll just be standing here 'cause I know I don't have the guts to come on
    All night long, all night long
    And I'll be sleeping with the television on

    Your eyes are saying talk to me, talk to me
    But my attitude is "boy, don't waste your time"
    Your eyes are saying talk to me, talk to me
    But I won't say a word 'cause it just might be somebody else's same old line

    All night long, all night long
    We're only standing here 'cause somebody might do somebody wrong
    All night long, all night long
    And we'll be sleeping with the television on
    Sleeping with the television on
    Sleeping with the television on
