lyrics

Chaperone your love tonight
Doing the things he won’t do right
Grab the wheel and drive the long way home
He makes her feel so lonely when they’re alone

I’ve been waiting in the wings too long
Waiting to sing you this song
Step in to the killing light
Let me stand inside your lover tonight
Let me stand in for your lover tonight

Act by act play by play
She always picks a villain but this one stayed
Threadbare velvet & crowded stalls
To her I’m just an extra with no curtain call

I’ve been waiting in the wings too long
Waiting to sing you this song
Step in to the killing light
Let me stand inside your lover tonight
Let me stand in for your lover tonight

They never ask me what I’m gonna do
They never notice that I’m shadowing you
I catch your eye but you’re looking through me

I’ve been waiting in the wings too long
Waiting to sing you this song
Step in to the killing light
Let me stand inside your lover tonight
Let me stand in for your lover tonight
