First time I saw you back in 1982
An LA bar, I've come so far un my Kansas dancing shoes
I'm just a singer and I'm looking for a song
Do you want to sing along?

Two greyhounds later and I'm feeling alright
I've got to have you and it must be tonight
Come on back to my place, well, it's really just a room
But I'll be making some money soon

Goodbye and thank you, oh, my number, yeah, please phone
Two or three weekends on the 405 alone
You say c'mon and stay and when you sing
Down at the bar it will not be so far

And I tried to do my best, I never meant to hurt no one
I was waiting for my break that I knew one day would come
And I plug in my guitar and I look out across the room
And I dig into my heart and I try to sing the truth
And I know I did my best, I never meant to hurt no one

As I recall back in 1982
I never said goodbye or why I just left a note for you
Then one night I saw you across the road, across the dark
A shameful spear into my heart

Your look was haunting an unexpected pain
I am so sorry for the unexpected rain
The sadness that you kissed, the fresh scars on your wrist
I can't make it go away

And I tried to do my best, I never meant to hurt no one
I was waiting for my break that I knew one day would come
And I plug in my guitar and I look out across the room
And I dig into my heart and I try to sing the truth
And I know I did my best, I never meant to hurt no one, no one, no one

Goodnight, ladies
Goodnight, I'm gonna leave you now
Goodnight, ladies
Goodnight, I'm gonna leave you now

Gonna leave you now
Goodnight, gonna leave you
Gonna leave you now, oh
Goodnight, oh, goodnight, sleep tight
