Lyrics

The local saloon, the passing parade
Eyes on the prize, hopes start to fade
Feeling no love, feeling no pain
Glasses are raised, no need to explain

Stand up the back, watch what goes on
Don’t get involved, don’t come on too strong
They’ve hurt you before, no need for trust
Keep your trap shut, don’t give them a crust

One word is all it takes
One word, a heart can break
One move, you’ve come so far, it’s give and take

Heart starts to beat, words start to slur
Follow her down, the lights are a blur
One kiss, it’s so close, as the music plays on
Just one more wine, the night’s getting long
Last drinks are served, time’s running out
Make your move now, but where do you start?
Everyone’s gone, the sun starts to rise
Wasting away, your eyes on the prize

One word is all it takes
One word, a heart can break
One move, you’ve come so far, it’s give and take

Sleep through the day, keep to yourself
Time all heals all wounds, you’ve only yourself
A vague sense of unease, a strong sense of guilt
Follows you round, a fortress is built

One word is all it takes
One word, a heart can break
One move, you’ve come so far, it’s give and take
