Beautiful Lady

"I remember the first time we met. I was standing at the bar and I suddenly saw your reflection in the mirror. It felt like I was watching a movie. Here was this beautiful lady on the screen. She'd just walked into my life and was standing right beside me. I couldn't tell if you were real. The bar was crowded and maybe it was just a trick of the light. Smoke and mirrors. A dream sequence. A distorted image. You may not have been near me at all. I just stood there staring, scared to turn around, not wanting the moment to end."

Beautiful lady

All dressed in black

I'm standing at the bar looking at you

In the mirror looking back

Must say I like what I see

I wonder what you think about me

Beautiful lady

Are you just a little lonely tonight?


Are looking for a lover?

Are you waiting for a friend?

Well, I could use a shoulder to lean on

And make me feel alive again

There's something about

That look in your eyes

Maybe we could compromise

I'll be your lover

If you'll be my lady tonight

Funny how when you're all alone

You find company in dreams

Even though you know

They can't come true

They say don't fall in love with love

It's never what it seems

But I could easily

Fall in love with you


You're a beautiful lady

What could you see in me?

I could never answer your dreams

And take you where you wanna be

I could only give you my love

Whatever am I thinking of?

Beautiful lady

I'm just a little lonely tonight
