Song Meaning
Verse 1
I know you broke up with him
And your heart's still on the shelf
It's been over two years for me
And I'm still not quite myself
Verse 2
You can't be with someone new
And you can't go back to him
You're beginning to realize
That it's sink or swim
Verse 3
I see you around sometimes
And my heart just melts
You're lookin' like if you had your wish
You'd be somewhere else
Verse 4
And it just breaks my heart
To see you here this way
Someday I'll get the nerve
To walk up to you and say
Verse 5
This is the last worthless evening
That you'll have to spend
Just gimme a chance
To show you how to love again
Verse 6
This is the last worthless evening
That you'll have to spend
'Cause I'll be there
When your broken heart is on the mend
Verse 7
Every night it's the same old crowd
In smoky rooms
You catch a faint glimpse of love sometimes
But it never blooms
Verse 8
I've been around this block a time or two
And I've made some big mistakes
But girl I promise you, I promise you
That this is the worthless evening
Verse 9
That you'll have to spend
Just gimme a chance
To show you how to love again
This is the last worthless evening
Verse 10
That you'll have to spend
'Cause it won't be long
'Til your little heart is on the mend
People inside their houses
Verse 11
With the shades pulled down
God knows, we could use some romance
In this sleepy bedroom town
I know you're still afraid to rush into anything
Verse 12
But there're just so many summers
And just so many springs
And this is the last worthless evening
That you'll have to spend
Verse 13
Just gimme a chance to show you how
To love again
This is the last worthless evening
That you'll have to spend, baby
Verse 14
'Cause I'll be there when your broken heart
Is on the mend
This is the last worthless evening
That you'll have to spend
Verse 15
Just gimme a chance, gimme a chance
To show you how to love again
This is the last worthless evening
That you'll have to spend 'cause it won't be long
Verse 16
'Til your little heart is on the mend
