Terri Clark – Suddenly Single lyrics

In the pale neon light
Of a Saturday night
You'll see him walk up to the bar
He'll size up the ladies
The 'no's" and the "maybe's"
'Til he finds one who'll let down her guard
Then the band on his hand
Gets slipped off again
And his disarming charm starts to work
And with a drink and a lie
In the blink of an eye
Something amazing occurs

He's suddenly single
Instantly free
And for three or four hours
He's the man of her dreams
He acts like there's no one
Waiting at home
He'll be suddenly single
'Til he's suddenly gone

He sneaks through the door
At a quarter to four
But tonight there's no one to wake
The note that she wrote him
Says, "I've given up hopin'
I'd be able to change you someday. "
He sits on the bed
Shakin' head
A man in complete disbelief
He knows what he's lost
Oh, but he never thought
Someday he'd really be

Suddenly single
Instantly free
And for the rest of his life
She'll haunt his dreams
And now there'll be no one
Waiting at home
He's suddenly single
'Cause she's suddenly gone

He's suddenly single
'Cause she's suddenly gone
