Here we sit lookin' at each other
Seems we're at a loss for what to say
Ties bind us both with someone else
We don't want to hurt but we must break away

And tonight I'll sit home a thinking
And tonight I'll sit home a drinking
We both live in separate homes where there's no love at all
Stayin' up late burning the midnight oil
[ fiddle - steel ]
Tomorrow we'll meet here in this same place
Where love and desire that just won't wait
In each others arms we'll dream for a little while
Then when it's time to leave it'll nearly drive us wild

And tonight again I'll sit home a thinking...
And tonight again I'll sit home a drinking
we both live in separate homes where there's no love at all
Stayin' up late burning the midnight oil
Stayin' up late burning the midnight oil
