I'll meet you out in the West End
But I'm seeing myself there instead
This night is feeling so smooth
I'm thinking I just can't lose

I don't know what to say to that
I have to go now but we can talk about it when I'm back

He sees her alone at the bar
You can tell that he won't get very far
Whatever he said makes her laugh
I'm left standing with an empty glass

I try to walk right on past
But I'll have to say something
When I avoid I get trapped
By the ones that want to last

They say you can't escape yourself
But you can when you've got wealth
It starts with a silent goodbye
And ends with a feeling of cold
