  • When was the last time you kissed me
    And I don't mean a touch now and then
    It's been a long time since you felt like my woman
    And even longer since I felt like your man
    So tell me if you think it's over
    And I'll leave it up to you how it ends
    And if there's someone who wants the love you can give him
    Well there's a honky tonk angel who'll take me back in
    We've been living a lie for so long now
    How much more do you think we can stand
    There's an old friend out there and she's waiting
    Lord, she's happy just holding my hand
    So tell me if you think it's over
    And I'll leave it up to you how it ends
    And if he still wants the love you can give him
    Well there's a honky tonk angel who'll take me back in
    Yeah there's a honky tonk angel who'll take me back in Writer/s: DENNY RICE, TROY HAROLD SEALS
