  • We met downtown in the barroom
    Both of us needing a friend
    And you brought me home to your doorstep
    It was there you invited me in

    We spent the wee hours dancing
    To your favorite home stereo sounds
    We talked about what we been needin'
    Discussin' our ups and our downs

    And I've had a beautiful time
    Holding your heart next to mine
    I poured out the feelings while you poured the wine
    And I've had a beautiful time

    If I seem a wee bit uneasy
    You really sized me up right
    There's somebody home still up waiting
    She probably been waiting up all night

    I can't say I found any answers
    But you listen while I ride alone
    And you little beautiful lady
    And you kept me from being alone

    And I've had a beautiful time
    Holding your body next to mine
    I poured out the feelings while you poured the wine
    And I've had a beautiful time

    I've had a beautiful time
    Holding your heart next to mine
    We poured out the feelings and then we poured the wine
    And I've had a beautiful time

    You poured out the feelings while we poured the wine
    And I've had a beautiful time
