There's a lonely man thinkin' about a long lost love
The gleam in a young girl's eye
The content of a man just in from the cold
With a pretty young thing by his side

But he threw it away like a lifetime wasted
Still learnin' what he ought to know
Once a fresh young buck now he's down on his luck
And the miles are startin' to show

Chorus:

So if you're looking for a little affection
Don't go waiting for the timing to be right
The trouble with romance is taking your chances
In the desperation of a downtown night

There's a lonely girl sitting with a chip on her shoulder
Feeling that time's runnin' out
The dismay of a woman who never saw it coming
Never knew what it was about

The confusion of a girl who watched as her whole world
Completely unraveled at the seams
Once the toast of the town now it all comes down
To findin' the man of her dreams

Chorus

Bridge:

And when the lights go down and you're all alone
You think you'll never find love but you don't wanna go home

But if you're looking for a little affection
Don't go waiting for the timing to be right
The trouble with romance is taking your chances
In the desperation of a downtown night
