Doesn't Everyone Do That

My old, sweet refrain
Beckoning in the night
Wide awake with fright
Doesn't everyone do that?
 
Should I call that old number
Subdivide a little guilt
For the shame of love rebuilt
Doesn't everyone do that?
 
I watched his eyes do that thing again
Reaching for the wanted need
Should he paint it black or let it bleed?
Doesn't everyone do that?
