A girl in the night
She lives her life in honkytonks
And the crowded backstreet bars
A world of make believe that knows
No sun no moon no stars
Just a glitter of a great white way
And the glare of city lights
Where the music's loud she's in the crowd
A girl in the night
I wonder if she's thinking
Of a dream that didn't last
I wonder if she's haunted
By heartaches from the past
Perhaps there is a story
Of a love that wasn't right
The shadows hide her empty pride
A lonely girl in the night
[ steel ]
She's setting there so lonely
As she lights a cigarette
The smoke rings rise and in her eyes
There seems to be regret
Is she there to tempt another
In a dress that hugs her tight
A glass of wine to pass the time
A girl in the night
I wonder if she's thinking
Of a dream that didn't last
I wonder if she's haunted
By heartaches from the past
Perhaps there is a story
Of a love that wasn't right
The shadows hide her empty pride
A lonely girl in the night
