I came here to be all alone
To drink away my troubles on my own
Nobody knows me in this place
I’m just another lost and lonesome face

I ain’t known for takin’ chances
But I been catchin’ all your long sidelong glances

I didn’t come here to be seen
But I can feel your eyes burning holes in me
And maybe I’ve wanted you
For a long, long lonely time, too

I ain’t known for takin’ chances
But I been catchin’ all your long sidelong glances

I don’t need nobody to set my world on fire
I’d rather die all alone than settle for a liar
If I let myself take a chance on you and step on the wire
I’ll be steppin’ sidelong

I ain’t known for takin’ chances
But I been catchin’ all your long sidelong glances

I don’t need nobody to set my world on fire
I’d rather die all alone than settle for a liar
If I let myself take a chance on you and step on the wire
I’ll be steppin’ sidelong
