You were heading out to the pavement
outside the bar where you went
just to have a cigarette and I would sit and smoke one too.
Everything you said was new when
I had heard it from you and
I didn't want to think of how I'd heard it all from someone else before
You didn't really know me
we just talked about nothing
late night, Friday, we had nowhere else to be.
And the stars were clearer than they had been in a while
And the night was colder than it had been in a while
And your name was friendly and so was your smile
And your face was pretty, so I stayed a while.
We were sitting out on the pavement
outside the bar where you'd been
trying to find some quite time and trying to get away from the noise.
You said everything gets better
and everything takes time
I didn't seem to care too much that I'd heard that speech from someone else before
Well we had both been drinking
but if it had been different
I wouldn't have spoke with you and had another memory to keep
or had another song to sing
it was nice for the night to just have a friend.
