lyrics

Written by John Lyons

Stoned on rum and coke that night
He asked her do you have a light
She said hang on I think I might
Walk with me


Out into the night they went
He picked on her French accent
He said my last ten dollars spent
Talk with me

He told her stories in great detail
See her smile for a while
Then she heard the sirens wail
Time rolled by in the blink of an eye

She asked him what he had for plans
He just smiled and took her hand
Come home with me if you can
I’ll be your man

She said your nice but there's no way
My husband is back in town today
Guess that I’ll be on my way
On my way

He said your husband will never know
She said I’m not some cheatin’ hoe
I know its really time to go
And she walked away

Back into the bar he went
His hopes shot down his money spent
His buzz was on and his mind was bent
In the blink of an eye



He told his story in great detail
See her smile for a while
Then she heard the sirens wail
Time rolled by
In the blink of an eye

She never made it home that night
A drunken driver took her life
These things can happen anytime
In the blink of an eye
