Lyrics

I was alone On the road
In a city in a foreign country with no one to hold
I was lonely Really sad
It was seven years since my marriage had ended so bad
I checked in at the front desk and I carried my own bags up to the room
Just another business trip and I'm gettin bored and feeling the gloom, deep inside

Most of the better cocktail lounges are located in the major hotels

I'd had enough Of TV
And talking about business endlessly
There was something Missing here
I needed some inspiration or maybe a beer
I went down to the lobby and the night concierge gave me a smile
I asked her if she could recommend some piano bar where I could hang for a while, & she said

Most of the better cocktail lounges are located in the major hotels

The major hotels

There I was At the bar
Feeling pretty much the same as I did before
And the singer At the keys
Was crooning about how love had brought him to his knees
Then I saw a pretty lady nursing a drink and watching the game
The conversation was flowing easy, she gave me a light, I gave her my name & I said

Most of the better cocktail lounges are located in the major hotels

Most of the better cocktail lounges are located in the major hotels

Major hotels
