"Lady With The Braid" as written by and Dory Langdon Previn....
would you care to stay till sunrise
it's completely your decision
it's just that going home is such a ride (such a ride)
going home is such a ride
going home is such a ride
going home is such a low and lonely ride

would you hang your denim jacket
near the poster by picasso
do you sleep on the left side or the right (or the right)
would you mind if i leave on the light
would you mind if it isn't too bright
now i need the window open
so if you happen to get chilly
there's this coverlet my cousin hand crocheted (hand crocheted)
do you mind if the edges are frayed
would you like to unfasten my braid

shall i make you in the morning
a cup of homemade coffee
i will sweeten it with honey and with cream
when you sleep
do you have dreams?
you can read the early paper
and i can watch you while you shave
oh god the mirror's cracked
when you leave
will you come back?
you don't have to answer that at all
the bathroom door is just across the hall
you'll find an extra towel on the rack
on the paisley patterned papered wall
there's a comb on the shelf
i papered that wall myself
that wall myself

would you care to stay till sunrise
it's completely your decision
it's just the night cuts through me like a knife (like a knife)
would you care to stay awhile and save my life?
would you care to stay awhile and save my life?

i don't know what made me say that
i've got this funny sense of humor
you know i could not be downhearted if i tried (if i tried)
it's just that going home is such a ride
going home is such a ride
going home is such a ride
isn't going home a low and lonely ride?
isn't going home a low and lonely ride?
isn't going home a low and lonely ride?

    General CommentA heartbreaking song about lonliness.

    I know it's probably just what it is; the story of an isolated woman who's trying to get a visitor to stay the night, but when I listen to it I imagine the ghost of the singer trying to talk to men who are dismantling her empty house and not getting any response.
