All alone on the road near the other side of town
In the dark of the night and the rain was fallin' down
Up ahead, said a sign, was the Overnight Cafe
Maybe one for the road just to pass the night away

Then she came in the room and she moved across the floor
With the look of a woman who's been through it all before
Then she smiled as she spoke and it made me realize
That the time was right and the love was in her eyes
That the time was right and the love was in her eyes

Then she asked and I told her that I was due in town
Hey mama, can you tell me what's on your mind?
Then she told me that she'd like to see me hang around
And maybe I could take her home
Never know what could happen when we're both alone

Now I'm back on the road and I'm running overtime
Turn around if I could and you know it crossed my mind
But I know I'll be back 'cause she made me realize
That the time was right and the love was in her eyes
That the time was right and the love was in her eyes

CETERA, PETER P.
