Billy Joe Royal – Before The Night Is Over lyrics

I can't stay home at all, I'm afraid you might call
And I'm fool enough to fall for the same old line
I won't follow my heart to wherever you are
No, I won't go that far, no, not this time
Oh, when it comes down to it
I'll try not to do it
But there'll be a quarter in a pay phone
And a finger on a touch tone
Before the night is over

I'll just cruise with my friends cause they know how it is
I'll just smile and pretend that it's all right
And turn the radio on, there's so many sad songs
But I'll leave you alone if it takes all night
Cause when it comes down to it
I'll try not to do it
But there'll be a quarter in a pay phone
And a finger on a touch tone
Before the night is over

Would it hurt more not to have you
Or hurt more to be without you
Or to never ever have you again (to have you again)
But when it comes down to it
I just know I'm gonna do it
There'll be a quarter in a pay phone
And a finger on a touch tone
Before this night is over
