The Last Worthless Evening



I know you broke up with him and your heart’s still on the shelf It's been over two years for me and I'm still not quite myself You can't be with someone new and you can't go back to him You're beginning to realise that it's sink or swim

I see you around sometimes and my heart just melts You're looking like if you had your wish you'd be somewhere else And it just breaks my heart to see you here this way Someday I'll get the nerve to walk up to you and say

This is the last worthless evening that you'll have to spend Just gimme a chance to show you how to love again This is the last worthless evening that you'll have to spend Cos I'll be there when your broken heart is on the mend

Every night it’s the same old crowd in smoky rooms You catch a faint glimpse of love sometimes but it never blooms I've been around this block a time or two And I've made some big mistakes but girl I promise you, I promise you

This is the worthless evening that you'll have to spend Just gimme a chance to show you how to love again This is the last worthless evening that you'll have to spend Cos it won't be long til your little heart is on the mend

People inside their houses with the shades pulled down God knows, we could use some romance in this sleepy bedroom town I know you're still afraid to rush into anything But there're just so many summers and just so many springs

And this is the last worthless evening that you'll have to spend, baby Just gimme a chance, gimme a chance to show you how to love again This is the last worthless evening that you'll have to spend Cos it won't be long til your little heart is on the mend

Oh yeah, uh huh, that you'll have to spend Just gimme a chance darling to show you how to love again, again This is the last worthless evening that you'll have to spend Cos it won't be long til your broken heart is on the mend
