All along the western plains, the lions lick their teeth
With a look in their eye--the one you're giving me tonight
And all along the countryside, the mourning doves will call
For the sun will soon come and greet them all
With a brand new start, a world apart from us

But each time you drop a line, it seems you're lying through your teeth
Stop wasting all my time
I've only got an hour to kill; let's not waste it all with talking
We've only got tonight

All along the New York strip, the people wait and watch
For the change of the light--these little rest stops from their lives
And all along suburban streets, the kids come out to play
And take advantage of the fact that there's no rain today
But how different things become when night's the only time of day you're up

But each time you drop a line, it seems you're lying through your teeth
Stop wasting all my time
I've only got an hour to kill; let's not waste it all with talking
We've only got tonight, tonight

Just stop!
Stop blaming all your flaws on God
And acting bashful when we both know you're not
You act surprised when you look up at the clock
"Oh, it's so late!" ...like you forgot
Just stop, stop playing like you care so much
When you know neither of us care to keep in touch
You're just like me--life's got you jaded on love
Oh, we both don't care enough

Each time you drop a line, it seems you're lying through your teeth
Stop wasting all my time
I've only got an hour to kill; let's not waste it all with talking
We've only got tonight, tonight, --ight, tonight
