Song Description

a travelin' man who probably wishes he could settle down.

Story Behind the Song

Committment is the problem. He knows he's not gettin' any younger but he can't settle down with just one woman.

Lyrics

TWO NIGHT STANDS

I EASE ONTO THE BLACKTOP AS THE SUN IS WAKIN' UP ANOTHER DAY.
I LEFT HER BACK THERE SLEEPIN', CAUSE WHEN IT'S TIME TO LEAVE, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY.
IT WAS GOOD WHILE IT LASTED, BUT LIKE ALWAYS IT WAS JUST A COUPLE DAYS, I SOMETIMES WISH IT COULD BE DIFF'RENT, I AINT PROUD OF ME, BUT I GUESS IT'S JUST MY WAY.

I TELL MYSELF THAT SOMEDAY I'LL FIND SOMEONE AND I'LL JUST SETTLE DOWN, BUT SOMEHOW I CONVINCE MYSELF THERE'S ONE BETTER THAN THE ONE THAT I JUST FOUND.
AND I SNEAK OUT IN THE DARKNESS BEIN' CAREFUL SO I DON'T MAKE A SOUND.
THEN I PICK UP WHERE I LEFT OFF, WITH THIS THING THAT I CALL LOVE IN SOME NEW TOWN.

CHORUS: I AINT GETTING' ANY YOUNGER, I'VE GOT TO STOP THIS RUNNIN' PLACE TO PLACE,
THESE TWO NIGHT STANDS ARE KILLIN" ME, I SEE IT IN THE LINES IN MY FACE.
AND SOMEDAY SOON NOBODY WILL WANT THIS OLD BODY ANYMORE.
AND SOME MORNIN' WHEN I WAKE UP SHE'LL BE THE ONE THAT'S SNEAKIN' OUT THE DOOR.

OH THIS NEW TOWN LOOKS SO DIFFERENT I THINK I'LL JUST STOP A LITTLE WHILE.
THE WAITRESS KEEPS ON STARIN' AND SHE'S GOT A PRETTY SMILE.
SHE'S NOT LIKE ALL THE OTHERS, MAYBE SHE'S THE ONE THAT'LL MAKE ME WANT TO STAY.
BUT I KNOW DAMN WELL I'M LYIN' AND I MIGHT AS WELL STOP TRYIN' TO CHANGE MY WAYS.

REPEAT CHORUS:
