Our love was as strong as love could be
But then someone got between you and me
People said we were finished when you walked out the door
I was so worried, I walked a hole in the floor

But I'm holdin' court tonight
Surprising all my friends
I'm holdin' court tonight, baby
'Cause I got you back again

All the one nighters that I had to do
I didn't think about what that would do to you
Some smart guy thought that while I was away
That he could just slip right in and take my place

But I'm holdin' court tonight
Surprising all my friends
I'm holdin' court tonight, baby
'Cause I got you back again

I called you from [Incomprehensible] to talk about yesterday
Nothing about I love you, there's just some bills to pay
You said time and loneliness had made you weak
It's hard not to listen when temptation speaks

We talked about it
And we set it straight
And now I'm on the town, baby
We're gonna celebrate

I'm holdin' court tonight
Surprising all my friends
I'm holdin' court tonight, baby
'Cause I got you back again

I'm holdin' court tonight
I'm holdin' court tonight
I got my baby back again
I'm holdin' court tonight, baby
