The night life has its glamour when you're lonely,
It seems to help you make it for awhile.
It calls to fools who think the only answer,
Is wrapped up in a warm and willin' smile.

And so I went out searching every evening,
Oh I'd drink the wine to whet my appetite.
'Til I'd find some pretty girl back in the corner,
To be my life's companion for the night.

But I just can't seem to take it anymore,
I feel empty walkin' through a swingin' door.
Seein' all the lonely people, just starin' at the band,
Wrapped inside their feelings, playin' one night stands.

I'd take her home to tell her my sad story,
I'd put a tear drop into every word.
Oh I felt just like a genius when I made up,
The lies that I don't think she even heard.

The wine would start to bring us close together,
Our lips would meet to quench a hungry thrirst.
We'd slip into a world of champagne feelings.
But in the mornin' all the bubbles burst.

And I just can't seem to take it anymore,
I feel empty walkin' through a swingin' door.
Seein' all the lonely people, just starin' at the band,
Wrapped inside their feelings, playing one night stands.

No I just can't seem to take it anymore,
I feel empty walkin' through a swingin' door.
Seein' all the lonely people just starin' at the band.
Wrapped inside their feelings, playin' one night stands.

(Wrapped inside their feelings)
Playin' one night stands.
