From the recording Sufficiently Crazy
(Music – M. Novak, Lyrics – M. Novak, C. Webster)
Breakups are hard emotions turn cold
It happens often try again we are told.
Walking the streets and find a saloon
Happy couples inside, try again soon.
Willing to take another chance
It’s part of life’s endless dance.
Order a scotch or maybe a beer
A new love just might be sittin’ here
Slippin in between the sheets as their hearts skip a beat
Steamin up the windows and curling their toes
Will they take it from here no one knows
A look from across the bar
Connection made from afar
A toast to a possible tryst
An opportunity not to be missed.
A light points to an extra chair
pushed open he hopes she sits there
The connection is immediate passions on fire
The look in their eyes takes it much higher.
A cab is hailed they climb in the rear
The hotel is close they’re happy it’s near.
In the dark elevator it’s time to explore
The heat is rising they can’t take much more.
The room’s far away or it seems to be
Running down the hall fumbling for the key.
Rush into the room, the clothes hit the floor
Now it’s just them and nothing more.
The next morning well its breakfast in bed
Hopes for the future dance in their heads
Again the steam is rising before they must leave
Another chance to get a reprieve
They each hail a cab and go their own way
The steam is gone it’s just another day
They might meet again who knows what life might be
As the steam again builds they’ll have to wait and see.
