Late Night Out
I’m really not a drinking man no matter how it seems
And I spend a lot of time alone engaged in empty dreams
Yet I could be a stable force if given half a chance
Perhaps you’d even like to try this dance, Perhaps you’d even like to try this dance.
I give myself some late nights out to mingle with the crowd
To drink too much and laugh and dance to music that’s too loud
A man must do what he must do to make it worth his while
That’s how I felt until you smiled, that’s how I felt until you smiled.
I always notice you, whenever you are around
I will get close to you yes I will, yes I will, yeah
When I met your gaze across the room I became reassured
I played the game and worked my charm, I thought I even scored
We did some slow ones clutching tight alone out on the floor
I somehow sensed there would be more, I somehow thought there might be more
The sweet fragrance of you dear, made me feel like a man
The warm softness of you near, worked a thought into a plan
Let me drive you home, take you home, take you home, yeah
I will remember you as if I could forget
You’re what I’m looking for, hoping for, only for you
Perhaps it was the alcohol, I still think it was fate
‘Cause things were going really well until you said “it’s late”
You inferred with your parting kiss that this would not be the end
Will time show us just casual friends, will time show us just as casual friends.
In retrospect I wonder if it’s really worth the time
A drunken night that makes me think perhaps you will be mine
I should be optimistic but somehow I have my doubts
I must forget those late nights out, I must forget those late nights out
I must forget those late nights out, I must forget those late nights out.
