Late at night, somewhat tight
Guardian angels put to flight
Freddie's doused the neon light
That promised while it shone

Time to go, time to blow
They don't push me 'cause they know
I am still in my long ago
When Annie took me home

There, was I wondering why
Annie'd choose to ask me over?
But she did, sure she did
She called me her Irish Rover

Sat me there in her chair
Ran her fingers through my hair
Talk of Heaven, I've been there
When Annie took me home

Rafters rung, songs were sung
Like Spanish is the loving tongue
Ribbons on my life were hung
When Annie took me home

There was wine, there was time
All the while guitars were playing
When the day came my way
And she told me I'd be staying

Love can go, love can grow
Did she love me? I don't know
Though she often told me so
I never really know

Was I blind? I don't mind
I think life's been more than kind
Thanks to life there was the time
When Annie took me home

Thanks to life there was the time
When Annie took me home
