There's a lonely man thinkin' bout a long lost love
And the gleam in a young girl's eye
But he threw it away like a lifetime wasted
Still learnin’ what he ought to know
Once a fresh young buck now he’s down on his luck
And the miles are startin’ to show

So if you’re looking for a little affection
Don’t go waiting for the timing to be right
The trouble with romance is taking your chances
In the desperation of a downtown night

There’s a lonely girl sitting with a chip on her shoulder
And feeling that time’s runnin’ out
The dismay of a woman who never saw it coming
Or even knew what it was about
The confusion of a girl who watched as her whole world
Completely unraveled at the seams
Once the toast of a town now it all comes down
To findin’ the man of her dreams

So if you’re looking for a little affection
Don’t go waiting for the timing to be right
The trouble with romance is taking your chances
In the desperation of a downtown night

And when the lights go down and you’re all alone
You think you’ll never find love but you don’t wanna go home

But if you’re looking for a little affection
Don’t go waiting for the timing to be right
The trouble with romance is taking your chances
In the desperation of a downtown night
