At the dark end of the street
that’s where we always meet
hiding in shadows where we don’t belong
living in darkness, to hide our wrong
You and me
At the dark end of the street
You and me

I know time is gonna take it’s toll
we have to pay for the love we stole
It’s a sin and we know it’s wrong
Oh, but our love keeps coming on strong
Steal away to the dark end of the street
You and me

They gonna find us, they gonna find us
They gonna find us love someday
You and me
At the dark end of the street
You and me

When the daylight hour goes round
And by chance we’re both down the town
If we should meet, just walk on by
Oh, darling, please don’t cry
Tonight with me at the dark end of the street
You and me
