"The Last Worthless Evening" as written by and Don/corey Henley....
I know you broke up with him
And your heart's still on the shelf
It's been over two years for me
And I'm still not quite myself

You can't be with someone new
And you can't go back to him
You're beginning to realize
That it's sink or swim

I see you around sometimes
And my heart just melts
You're lookin' like if you had your wish
You'd be somewhere else

And it just breaks my heart
To see you here this way
Someday I'll get the nerve
To walk up to you and say

This is the last worthless evening
That you'll have to spend
Just gimme a chance
To show you how to love again

This is the last worthless evening
That you'll have to spend
'Cause I'll be there
When your broken heart is on the mend

Every night it's the same old crowd
Smoky rooms
You catch a faint glimpse of love sometimes
But it never blooms

I've been around this block a time or two
And I've made some big mistakes
But girl I promise you, I promise you
This is the last worthless evening

That you'll have to spend
Just gimme a chance
To show you how to love again
This is the last worthless evening

That you'll have to spend
'Cause it won't be long
'Til your little heart is on the mend
Hey, hey, hey, hey
(Time, time, tickin', tickin', tickin' away)
(Time, time, tickin', tickin', tickin')
(Time, time, tickin', tickin', tickin' away)
(Time, time, tickin', tickin', tickin')

People inside their houses
With the shades pulled down
God knows, we could use some romance
In this sleepy bedroom town
I know you're still afraid to rush into anything

But there're just so many summers
And just so many springs
And this is the last worthless evening
That you'll have to spend

Just gimme a chance, gimme a chance
To show you how love again
This is the last worthless evening
That you'll have to spend

'Cause it won't be long
'Til your little heart is on the mend
That you'll have to spend

Just gimme a chance, darling
To show you how to love again
This is the last worthless evening
That you'll have to spend 'cause it won't be long

'Til your broken heart is on the mend

    General CommentThe first time I heard this song, I thought it was about a boy, long in love with this girl, who just wanted to give her one "worthless evening" to be with him, a boy she never loved like her ex-boyfriend. In other words, the boy's dream comes true for a single night, and she gets to feel loved again, for a single night, before moving on to someone else. A single night can make all the difference in these people's lives.

    Acey_Dearest's interpretation is probably more accurate, but there's a reason why it's called an "interpretation." My interpretation, by definition rooted in my own experiences, is going to be the basis for a pivotal scene in a story I'll be writing. Music provides such great inspiration for writers like us - especially beautiful pieces like this song.
