ANOTHER TIME ANOTHER PLACE (Robert J. Purvis)

Waiting, waiting alone in the cold night

Maybe, she'll come, but I'm not really sure

No, I'm not really sure at all


Thinking, maybe tonight was the wrong night

Said she'd be here, but she's taking her time

Yes, she's taking her time to come


Could it be, I've been too fast to say "hello"?

Did I come on far too strong?

When she said "yes", did she mean "no"?


Another time, another place

Another promise floating in the wind

If you don't want me 'round, baby, don't lead me on

Give me a sign, I'll be gone

Another time, another place

We see each other in a different light

I'll be able to tell from that look in your eye

I know that I won't have to try


All night, lying alone with a small light

Casting the shadows around in my room

Thinking, it will be morning soon


Hoping, hoping I'll see you tomorrow

Maybe, you'll give me a wave or a smile

Make me think that it's all worthwhile


And I'll say "where did you get to yesterday?"

And you'll smile a little more

But there's a chance that you might say...


Another time, another place

Another promise floating in the wind

If you don't want me 'round, baby, don't lead me on

Give me a sign, I'll be gone

Another time, another place

We see each other in a different light

I'll be able to tell from that look in your eye

I know that I won't have to try

Give me a sign, I'll be gone

Another time, another place

We see each other in a different light

I'll be able to tell from that look in your eye

I know that I won't have to try
