It was Friday night
And both of us were lonely 
We seemed to meet as lonely people do
To fill the empty space till Monday morning
I never meant to fall in love with you

You came right out and told me
 About your wife back home in Houston 
You were just in town on business 
And never tried to lead me on

But the time had seemed just fine
 Simply love you for the moment 
But Heaven help me, time ran out
And now the moment's gone

 Silver wings and golden rings
Are taking you today 
I'll be dying on the ground  While you are flying away

 Silver wings and golden rings
Are shinning on and on
 While the only love
I've ever known is gone

You made me feel like
I was something special
The way no other man had ever done
I knew last night would have to last forever 
'Cause there's no way from holding back the sun

Now I guess it's time for me
To drive you to the plane 
To hold back all my tears 
And tell you it's been nice

If you come back to town again 
You know I'd love to see you
But remember I'm not strong enough
To let go of you twice 

 Silver wings and golden rings
Are taking you today 
I'll be dying on the ground  While you are flying away

 Silver wings and golden rings
Are shinning on and on
 While the only love
I've ever known is gone

 Silver wings and golden rings
Are taking you today 
I'll be dying on the ground  While you are flying away

 Silver wings and golden rings
Are shinning on and on
 While the only love
I've ever known is gone

 Silver wings and golden rings
Are taking you today 
I'll be dying
