The cold wind of loneliness blew me through the door
I slumped over a table, boots on a sawdust floor
Smiling women came and went like many times before
Then she floated in wingless and sad

She thought I was an artist by the earring that I wore
I thought she was an angel fallen at my door
We called each other soul mates, we danced across the floor
And I held her soft hand in mine

But as the night wore on and the drinks wore off
Our love wore down, we’d had enough
Thought we were seeing what was clear and real
But with the morning came the truth revealed

Two broken people seeking refuge in the night
High on the feeling this time they’d get it right
But as we kissed and held each other until the early light
My mind whispered it’s only a dream

For as the night wore on and the drinks wore off
Our love wore down, we’d had enough
Thought we were seeing what was clear and real
But with the morning came the truth revealed

It was just too good to be true
Too good to be true

Woke up to a lazy sun yawning its hello
Backs to each other, now it’s time to go
Outside sweet music’s playing but inside a cold wind blows
Nothing’s ever what it seems

And as the night wore on and the drinks wore off
Our love wore down, we’d had enough
Thought we were seeing what was clear and real
But with the morning came the truth revealed

Thought we were seeing what was clear and real
But with the morning came the truth revealed
