I been cryin so long
I been a watin for you to come along
There you are what can I say
I wont ever let you get away

I been sittin by myself
Been compairin you to ever body else
You always won each hand you play
I wont ever let you get away

I can't pretend that you might happen twice
An I can not leave you to ur own device
Thinkin bout it takes to long
There aint no right there aint no wrong
This kinda deal don't come along ever day
I can't let you get away

I been prayin for a sign
For heaven to show me which road was mine
An then you smiled my knees gave way

The true and corrected lyrics:


It's late in the evening; she's wondering what clothes to wear.
She puts on her make-up and brushes her long blonde hair.
And then she asks me, "Do I look all right?"
And I say, "Yes, you look wonderful tonight."

We go to a party and everyone turns to see
This beautiful lady that's walking around with me.
And then she asks me, "Do you feel all right?"
And I say, "Yes, I feel wonderful tonight."

I feel wonderful because I see
The love light in your eyes.
And the wonder of it all
Is that you just don't realize how much I love you.

It's time to go home now and I've got an aching head,
So I give her the car keys and she helps me to bed.
And then I tell her, as I turn out the light,
I say, "My darling, you were wonderful tonight.
Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight."


I took that for a sign that you should stay

Well I can t pretend that you might happen twice
An I can not leave you to ur own device
Thinkin bout it takes to long
There aint no right there aint no wrong
This kinda deal don't come along ever day
I can't let you get away


Get awayyyyy
Get awayyyyy
