In the dim light from the television screen
I saw you on the couch looking at me
Batting your eyes oh so playfully, I want you
I walked over there and got on my knees
I looked up at you still looking at me
And I told you I was eternally grateful to God...
...for a woman like you, I turned over new
I kicked the old habits like sniffing glue
And just sitting around smoking with nothing to do

Honey, I got a phone call late last night
It was from an old friend who got in a fight with his wife...
...of almost ten years
He said he needed a drink and a place to sleep
So he came on in and started counting sheep that night
Oh, he dreamed of their wedding day
He had two little kids when the storm rolled in
Took them by surprise, they never were the same again
Aw, but what was so good back then

In the dim light of the television screen
I saw you on the couch looking at me
Batting your eyes so playfully, I want you...
