Tonight as lovers dine
Eat their fill and head for home
Or others ease their mind
By getting drunk or getting stoned
Mayhem fills the streets
I hear noise as the boys fall home
Some singles leave discreet
For tonight they don’t leave alone.

So many different parts
As so many play the game.
Some would guard their hearts
Some just avoid the playing.
When it comes to me
I guess I’m caught between the two.
I am neither out nor in
My body is here, My minds with you.
