"Silver Date" as written by and William G Mc Shane Nichelos Colby....
"No, I don't," I tell her tongue
I tell her, still I drink it all
And now my head's so silver numb
I guess she's crystal clear

'Cause she's all a blur, playing quarter songs
And she keeps her eyes at the jukebox
On the needle 'til it falls

Summer doll, my will's so low
See her laughing on her own
See her dancing all alone, again
Tell my thoughts I will go home
Singing like a drunken dove
Dreaming like a bum in love again

Somewhere down her silver song
I saw her turn and gently gave around
My dumb eyes caught hers on me
Then she turned her heels

We'll never go, 'cause we couldn't talk
This silver date slips into the somber
Waitress' last call

Summer doll, my will's so low
See her laughing on her own
See her dancing all alone, again
Tell my thoughts I will go home
Singing like a drunken dove
Dreaming like a bum in love again

    General Commentthis is one of my favorite songs ever because it's so mellow and restrained just like the guy that's sitting there all night watching this girl. he can't get along with her no matter how he tries, she's just not his speed.
