It was karaoke night at the college bar down the street.
There's only ever one guy who could sing on key, but the drinks were strong and the prices were cheap.
There was a pretty city girl sitting across from the bar, she'd been throwing them back all night.
The girls on The Westside had their high heels on, they were using their looks to get themselves some free drinks.
Along came a guy who didn't know what to say, but he tried and he started to think
through a friend he's gonna find out here name,
now he's walking on over to prove he's not the same,
as the boys in her life that have led her here, and what their promises became.
He placed his hands upon hers and he told her that he knew his place.
He said "I'm only 23 years old and theirs so much in my life that I'll have to face, but it'd be just a little easier if I could take you home with me tonight."
The girls on The Westside with their hair pinned up were stumbling out of the bathroom with some stars in their eyes.
It's never too hard to fall in love with a liar when she's fixing her lips instead of saying goodbye.
The piano store parking lot was hosting a party under yellow tinted floodlights that were hanging from palm trees.
When summer's just too much to spend some time in The Valley, they found somewhere in the cool.
The heart of Wednesday night's alive, but she was gone when the sun arrived
to tuck the kid's in in the morning. He went to say to her before she left without warning,
"It was just a little easier because I took you home with me tonight."
