"Try Again"

I spoke too soon, and the conversation ended
Iíd said all that I could say
Funny thing, but it only took a minute
She just smiled and looked away

But you know thatís how these things go
Sometimes you lose sometimes you win
Just a chance at a barroom dance
Sometimes you take it on the chin
But tomorrow night Iíll try again

I stayed too long and the evening was over
And there was nothing left to do
So I lied to her, and she lied back
She had fun and I did too

I took too long and she just disappeared
Back in the shadows by the door
I tried to speak but nothing happened
My time was over, nothing more
