  • Baby, it just took one look at you
    For me to change my one drink order to two
    Like we already knew each other
    Like we been talking all night
    About a minute into our first dance
    We got blindsided by your friends
    All in a hurry like you had to go
    Didn't they know you can't leave someone
    Girl, you can't leave someone

    In the middle of a dance floor all alone
    In the middle of an old school country song
    Right when I was just about to lean on in
    Why'd you have to go then?
    Baby, in the middle of the glow of the neon light
    It shoulda, coulda, woulda been the night of our lives
    Girl, it ain't right, no
    How you gonna leave me right in the middle of a memory?

    We were gonna dance till they shut it down
    People'd be staring while I spin you 'round
    Thinking we were so in love, yeah
    They wouldn't know we hadn't even hooked up
    I'd get your number and I'd give you mine
    And we'd be hanging out tomorrow night
    But now I don't know where you are
    I'm under these lights right here in the dark

    In the middle of a dance floor all alone
    In the middle of an old school country song
    Right when I was just about to lean on in
    Why'd you have to go then?
    Baby, in the middle of the glow of the neon light
    It shoulda, coulda, woulda been the night of our lives
    Girl, it ain't right, no
    How you gonna leave me right in the middle of a memory?

    Yeah, it's like you walked right out in the middle of a movie
    Tore the back half out of a book
    And no, you'll never know, girl, what you did to me
    It ain't right saying goodbye

    In the middle of a dance floor all alone
    In the middle of what could've been our song
    Right when I was just about to lean on in
    Why'd you have to go then?
    Baby, in the middle of the glow of the neon light
    It shoulda, coulda, woulda been the night of our lives
    But, girl, it ain't right, no
    How you gonna leave me right in the middle of a memory?
