I'm walking around this town by myself and I'm singing inside of my head.
I did not expect to feel like this when you left me alone.
It's as though I'm drawn and quartered by the steeds of my own volition,
but I do not mind for it makes me realize that I am alive and well.

I should recount and figure this out because I owe this to you.
There was something about the way our eyes would meet and stay,
and the simplest thing, endearing and free as laughter escapes on the breeze.

I got to say 'I wish you had stayed a little longer with me.'
Here I am lonely instead and I've got this song to sing.

Maybe you'll call when you come to my city or somewhere close by.
We can go out and paint up the town with any color we like.
I'll dress up real nice, sharp as a knife. I suppose I'll dress to impress.
I imagine we'll be surrounded by friends and we will be happy that we met.

I've got to say, 'I wish you had stayed a little longer with me.'
Here I am lonely instead and I've got this song to sing.

Darling I'm down on my knees.
