Night whispers a sad song
Echoes drift between alleys full of loneliness and want
A man stands under a burnt out neon sign
Sings an old song

He walks into an empty bar
Full of ghosts and fading memories
It once held hope and laughter
With dancers waying back and forth
Drum beat follows the lead
Bass cries in the background
And a woman sings the Saturday night blues

A man catches a smile in the dim light
Maybe, she whispers
But not tonight
Just dance a slow, slow dance so I can hold you tight
With no promises
Another Saturday night blues

Another Saturday night blues drifts away
And as the memories leave, they lock the door behind them
And the man standing under the burnt out neon sign sings an old song
