Late Last Night
by Split Enz



I saw you standing there at the bar
Your eyes were glazed with passion
A look of afar, a secret smile
I blew a few kisses
Said my name is Lyle

That love in her eyes (love in her eyes)
Heart to heart (heart to heart)
A tender goodbye (a tender goodbye)
Nothing could ever keep us apart
As you sipped your tequila
I knew I had to steal ya
Read like a book
Surprise that you took your time
Dig that rhyme

Gone, love took offense at the things I said
Good advice would be to go to bed
Rest my head, yeah
Catch 40 winks
While I dream about the things she said

Late last night, ooh yeah, late last night
She told me someone taught me everything I need to know, yeah
Last last night, late last night
She took my trembling hands and led me under the velvet sky
Rolling on the hill top playing Jack and Jill
Suddenly (suddenly) all was still, she was gone

She seemed so aloof
That's ninety per cent proof, with a lump in my throat
I grabbed my coat and ran, cornered again!
So I'll live for the moment and I'll take it as an omen
Gotta weakness for de women and de wine

Late last night, ooh yeah, late last night
She told me someone taught me everything I need to know, yeah
Late last night, ooh yeah, late last night
She told me someone taught me everything I need to know, yeah
Last last night, late late late late last night
She told me everything I know, know, know.
