1. Sometimes love can sure get lost in the daytime,

                         B7                                                        E 

    and working eight long hours, you're only a picture in my mind.

                               E                             E7                       A

    But when we're finally alone in each other's arms our love is found,

                   B7                                                       E

    and only lovers know what goes on when the sun goes down.

 

                   E                   A             E

What goes on when the sun goes down,

  A       E                                                 B7

pillow talking love, tangled sheets and cotton gowns.

                   E   - E7                                  A

What goes on          when the sun goes down,

                   E                               B7                        E

makes the every day life of two people in love go round.

2. Every morning with love renewed, we face another day,

          B7                                                                     E

    screen doors banging, the boss complaining and bills to pay.

                      E                              E7                          A

    Through it all we wear love's smile from the happiness we've found,

                    B7                                                              E

    and only lovers know what goes on when the sun goes down.
