Tonight That Lover Ain’t Me

Heaven knows you’re a beautiful woman
Any fool in this town can see that
I’ve got my own sense of direction
I don’t need a compass or map

Remember that sweet desperation
That drove me out of her mind
It’s always a sad situation
When you stand on both sides of the line

I’ve seen the bright lights
Most of the night lights
Swept out with the neon debris
Somewhere in this room there’s a lover for you
But tonight that lover ain’t me

Now I’ve been two-timed and down-hearted
I miss it every now and again
No use going back where I started
And abandon my one true friend

I’ve seen the hot lights
Stood in the spotlights
That’s where I earned my degree
Somewhere in this room
In the smoke and perfume
There’s a lover but it won’t be me
Somewhere in this room
There’s a lover for you
But tonight that lover ain’t me
