I saw you dancin' at the public dance
I took a bow, and you took a twirl
Like you were there just for the takin'
Like you could be anybody's girl

I saw you dancin' at the public dance
You had private eyes, ribbons in your hair
The smoke and the lights, they made you mine
You held me tight, and you didn't care

Let's go for a cigarette, now for a real drink
Hop in my car, and we'll drive somewhere
The brightest diamond on a worried finger
I felt you slip and vanish in the air

So I poured a cup, and I poured it back out
Stepped outside, hands behind my back
You were leanin' up against a car with
Some guy kissin' up and down your neck

So I wound it up down to the blacktop
Headlights catchin' up with everything
Now, it's black on black when the mist rolls through
All you can see is the blinkin' of a Coke machine

So I saw you dancin' at the public dance
Led you in circles 'round the crowded floor
I don't want to see you come next Monday
Don't want to see you anymore
