"So Many Nights" as written by and Felix Riebl....
It doesn't matter what I say
Doesn't matter what I do
It seems I'm gonna have to change my look for you
Cos I've got two shoes but they've been walked too far
And I think that we could float from evening to the stars

When I see you in the distance with your friends
I look around and I look down at my threads
It's inappropriate that I should present like
A retired matador with unpaid rent

So many nights, I'm still thinking 'bout you
And so many nights you step in and I walk through
So he doesn't care, 'cept he still combs his hair
So what am I supposed to do?

I bought a suit and I bought a top hat
I put a red stripe down the side of my slacks
Went to the barber got my hair cut high
And I bought a ticket for the opera tonight

But when I see you, your bodice and your pride
It's nice to greet you with an interrupted stride, besides
You say 'Good evening', you don't say 'Goodnight'
And I can't deny that

So many nights, I'm still thinking 'bout you
And so many nights until I changed my suit
And when I'm bare don't need to comb my hair
Cos I found what to do

Put your waistcoat on...
