Empty Handed

It's been a long day
We're losing the light
We got bills to pay
But let's be rock and roll tonight

If your feeling ok
Would it be alright
To take the rest of my pay
And take you out tonight

I can say how it came to be
Or when it even started
Without drums and guitars
And my Friends in the bars
I'd be standing in the street
Empty handed and broken hearted

We had to wait in line
the rainy night
We missed the first song
But I was holding you so tight
Dropped money at the door
To see the band under the light
I'd love another pint
Getting to the bars gonna a fight

Can't really say Why I got into a fight
doubt it matters anyway You look beautiful tonight
So I'll keep looking your way That's where I find the light
Baby are you still Coming home tonight
<Chorus> x 2
