You sure look fine tonight, in the beer sign light
Why did you seem surprised when I saw through your disguise?
All your friends were there and no one had a care
They all just looked away in this honky-tonk masquerade

You should have known I knew all along
That I could see through you, right or wrong
I didn't need a clue
I didn't even have to ask
You saw your own reflection in the glass

I'd like to see you home, but I know you're not alone
You seem to fit right in, as you tell me where you've been
You say there's not that much to tell but I know you oh-too-well
Your eyes give you away in this honky-tonk masquerade

You should have known I knew all along
That I could see through you, right or wrong
I didn't need a clue
I didn't even have to ask
You saw your own reflection in the glass

You sure look fine tonight, they're turning out the lights
Why did you hold my sleeve when I said I had to leave?
I hoped it never showed, but that's the way it goes
As the lights begin to fade on this honky-tonk masquerade
