No matter how I try
I just can't get her out of my mind
And I when I sleep
I visualize her

I saw her in the pub
I met her later at the nightclub
A mutual friend
Introduced us

We talked about the noise
And how its hard to hear your own voice
Above the beat                                   w/ beat
And the sub-bass

We talked and talked for hours
We talked in the back of our friend's car
As we all went
Back to his place

On our friend's settee
She told me that she really liked me
And I said, "Cool
The feeling's mutual"

We played old 45's
And said it's like the soundtrack to our lives
And she said, "True
It's not unusual"

Then privately we danced
But couldn't seem to keep our balance
A drunken haze
Had come upon us

We sank down to the floor
And we sang a song that I can't sing anymore
And then we kissed
And fell unconscious

   I woke up the next day
d             d         c
All alone but for a headache
I stumbled out
To find the bathroom

But all I found was her
Wrapped around another lover
No longer then
Is he our mutual
