"Fulfill the Dream" as written by and Murchy Bayles....
i saw her with another man walkin downtown
she's not mine and she'll never be by my side walkin downtown

i've only met her once before
she was alone in a back booth
a drink and a cigarette
smoking like she was waiting for someone
me stealing glances as she stole my breath
the next one's on me

may i take this seat
the rest of the bar reciedes
we talked on traveling back roads overseas
"Girl, a change sounds good to me"
she said,
"who can find that kind of time?"

i'd only met her once before
she was alone in a back booth
a drink and a cigarette
drinking like she was waiting for someone
me stealing glances as she stole my breath
the next one's on me

and after it's done
the sun comes up and she's gone
after it's done
you just move on
a night can show what's made plain by the sun

i'd only met her once before
she was alone in a back booth
a drink and a cigarette
smoking like she was waiting for someone
me stealing glances as she stole my breath

    General CommentI always thought this song was in part with
    "Lets Play Guitar in a 5 Guitar Band"
    Maybe talking about the same girl
    The lyrics are somewhat similar.

    General Comment"Me, stealing glances as she stole my breath"
    Absolutely love that line

    I didnt realise it was a one night stand 0_o

    Oh and TheShoreline
    The guy in "Lets Play Guitar in a 5 Guitar Band" spent a whole summer with the girl in that song. This is a one night stand. But yes similar topic.

    General CommentOf course the last line is true, in this case at least. It means he's saying on the night (of passion and drunkedness) he didn't see it being a one night stand, but then in the morning when the sun has come up, he see's (plainly) that it was.

    General CommentI heard this song once on the college radio station and fell in love with this band forever. I like how its a story that begins with him seeing her and that envoking the memory.
