She was a pretty young thing with a heart of gold
and she was always staring at the sky.
She worked the late-night shift in a downtown bar
where drunken fools would undress her with their eyes.

He was a hotshot son, his smile a loaded gun
that always made the girls fall at his feet.
He walked inside and noticed her right away
knew she's the girl he'd been dying to meet.

And he said: 'Honey, this ain't no place for you!
They should be building palaces, razing kingdoms for you,
and I don't know if it's the shots or the barroom light,
but you look lovely as a dream tonight
either that or you're the Queen of hearts.'

'I listened to all them love songs that my mamma sang
never thought that it'd be like this.
you swept me away, left without words to say
when, baby, you first leaned in for that kiss.'

'I thought I knew a lot about love and life
from all those gals I used to drive.
But they were just fun, just a practice run
so I could love you better when you arrive.'
