From a Table Away

  • I bet you'd never guess who I saw tonight
    Guess you didn't see me in those low dim lights
    I knew who she was
    By the ring still on her hand
    Sure looked like you still wanted to be her man

    So I guess that means that things are better
    Must not be so bad at home
    I thought it looked like you were leavin'
    But it don't
    And I heard you tell her you still love her
    So it doesn't matter what you say
    I saw it all
    From a table away

    I thought she was pretty
    She's nothing like the things you said
    The woman you described
    Couldn't even turn your head
    The two of you look lost inside a world all your own
    Like you couldn't wait to get her alone

    So I guess that means that things are better
    Must not be so bad at home
    I thought it looked like you were leavin'
    But it don't
    And I heard you tell her you still love her
    So it doesn't matter what you say
    I saw it all
    From a table away

    And I heard you tell her you still love her
    So it doesn't matter what you say
    I saw it all
    From a table away
    Yes you're gonna stay
