LONESOME SERENADE

‚Äč

So long, drive fast, take chances

And thanks for the dance

Left lonesome on some awful wine

To lay me down easy under the moonlight

 

Out walking late again

Faces surround me in a silent parade

And my chances wither with the passing tide

For one lighted window where someone’s awake

 

Left out on the sidewalk picturing the pretty people playing inside

Lit up by the lampshade laughing out loud with tears in their eyes

And I’ve been holding my own, planning a song, wondering how long

Must I sing this lonesome serenade

 

You said make your mind up or you wind up lonely

You said take your time to find your one and only

You said if it’s a nickel to love

Then it’s a dollar to find someone to look at you the same way

You said it’s a ways to go

And It’s a ways I know, I know

But could you tell me how long

 

My love, could you step into the light

From down here I can hardly see

And my heart hangs heavy when it’s grown too high

So lay me down easy, lay me down easy

 

I’ve been walking down these backstreets

Picturing the people that I want to pass by

I’ve been lit up in the cafes laughing out loud

Just to keep me from crying

I’ve been stumbling til down, singing a song, wondering how long

Must I sing this lonesome serenade

 

You said make your mind up or you wind up lonely

You said take your time

I’ve taken so much time that I don’t know how much more I can take

You said if it’s a nickel to love

Then it’s a dollar to find someone to look at you the same way

You said it’s a ways to go

And It’s a waste to know, I know

But could you tell me how long

Could you tell me how long

Must I sing this lonesome serenade

This lonesome serenade

This lonesome serenade

 

So long, drive fast, take chances

And thanks for the dance
