  • And the tennis court was covered up
    With some tent-like thing
    And you asked me to dance
    But I said, "Dancing is a dangerous game"
    Oh, I thought
    This is gonna be one of those things
    Now I know
    I'm never gonna love again

    I've got some tricks up my sleeve
    Takes one to know one
    You're a cowboy like me

    Never wanted love
    Just a fancy car
    Now I'm waiting by the phone
    Like I'm sitting in an airport bar

    You had some tricks up your sleeve
    Takes one to know one
    You're a cowboy like me

    Perched in the dark
    Telling all the rich folks anything they wanna hear
    Like it could be love
    I could be the way forward
    Only if they pay for it
    You're a bandit like me
    Eyes full of stars
    Hustling for the good life
    Never thought I'd meet you here
    It could be love
    We could be the way forward
    And I know I'll pay for it

    You're a cowboy like me

    Perched in the dark
    Telling all the rich folks anything they wanna hear
    Like it could be love
    I could be the way forward
    Only if they pay for it
    You're a bandit like me
    Eyes full of stars
    Hustling for the good life
    Never thought I'd meet you here
    It could be love
    We could be the way forward
    And I know I'll pay for it

    And the skeletons in both our closets
    Plotted hard to fuck this up
    And the old men that I've swindled
    Really did believe I was the one
    And the ladies lunching have their stories about
    When you passed through town
    But well, that was all before I locked it down

    Now you hang from my lips
    Like the Gardens of Babylon
    With your boots beneath my bed
    Forever is the sweetest con

    I had some tricks up my sleeve
    Takes one to know one
    You're a cowboy like me
    And I'm never gonna love again
    I'm never gonna love again
    I'm never gonna love again
