Tina Turner - Foreign Affair: Wikipedia Album Entry
Foreign Affair is the seventh solo album by Tina Turner, released on Capitol Records in 1989. Although the album did not perform as well as Private Dancer and Break Every Rule in the U.S., it was a world-wide hit, selling over 6 million copies. In Europe, six of the album's tracks became hit singles; "The Best", "Steamy Windows", "I Don't Wanna Lose You", "Foreign Affair", "Look Me In The Heart" and "Be Tender With Me Baby".
While the album failed to crack the top 30 of the U.S. Billboard 200, Foreign Affair entered the UK album chart at #1 (Turner's first album to do so there) and went on to sell over 1.5 million copies in the UK.

Last night we tried to touch
But we never got close
Last night we tried to talk
The words got caught in our throats
Oh, waitin' in the storm
Ask me how I feel?
When things are goin' wrong
Why don't you ask me how I feel?
Really brings me down, I don't know how
That you can say you're not my kind
Couldn't find a cloud for miles around
Why do you change your story line
A one in a million chance
You know the moment that you cross over the line
A casual glance
No one has to read between the lines
Should've never made an eye contact
Should've been a heart of stone
When you stopped me to say hello
Would've been twice as easy to just say no
He was my lover, he was working undercover
The fellow knew all of the moves
He really had me romping, bare footing stomping
He just kept igniting my fuse
You can run and you can hide
You can tell me you're untrue
You can play around with my feelings
Say you found somebody new
I heard some news this mornin'
And it almost devastated me
It hit my heart without a warnin'
The story is on the street
