Lyrics

A PLACE LIKE THIS

Make it one for me and my imaginary friend
I looked down the bar she was two seats from the end
A spaghetti strapped goddess in a juke box Camelot
I ordered one more round and I took my best shot

I was one seat away from making my move
Cast my fate to the night I had nothing to lose
And I said,
What's a place like this doin' round a woman like you
I slipped on my tongue and I fell like a fool
For that angel in bluejeans, princess on a stool
What's a place like this doin' round a woman like you
A woman like you

She looked up at me in disbelief
I felt like some drunk or crazy freak
But she started to smile with that sparkle in her eye
And although I don't have wings, I felt I could fly

I was one drink away from calling it a night
When she looked at me and said, "Did I hear you right?"
Did you say "What's a place like this doin' round a woman like you
You got it all wrong but I thought it was cute
Like a barroom Shakespeare, a happy hour muse
What's a place like this doin' round a woman like you

I can't believe my eyes and ears
We talked and laughed til we were in tears
I never will forget that night
'cause today the woman is my wife

Yeah, yeah, yeah,
What's a place like this doin' round a woman like you
How'd a guy like me
Get so lucky to be
In a place like this

With a woman like you
In a place like this --- woman like you
In a place like this---- woman like you
What's a place like this doing round a woman like you
