You could've heard a pin drop
When they walked through the door
Had to turn my eyes away
My heart fell to the floor
Someone whispered, "Where's her halo?"
'Cause she had an angel's face
He stood there smiling, holding on
To the one who took my place

So tonight the heartache's on me, on me
Let's drink a toast to the fool who couldn't see
Bartender pour the wine, 'cause the hurtin's all mine
Tonight the heartache's on me

I wonder if he told her
You could've heard a pin drop
When they walked through the door
Had to turn my eyes away
My heart fell to the floor
Someone whispered, "Where's her halo?"
'Cause she had an angel's face
He stood there smiling, holding on
To the one who took my place

So tonight the heartache's on me, on me
Let's drink a toast to the fool who couldn't see
Bartender pour the wine, 'cause the hurtin's all mine
Tonight the heartache's on me

I wonder if he told her
