Of all the gin joints that we sucked dry
And all the ice cubes soaking up the tears I’d cry
Waiting for a reply I watch my memories slip away with the passing of the days gone by
And all the games played trying to win this round
I know its crooked but it’s the only one in town
And don’t you know that there’s a war outside?
I’m scared to lose but I can’t find a place to hide

And you said it’s like the end of Casablanca
I don’t think they got it right
But it’s hard to see the big picture when your thinking’s so black and white
But it’s not the end of the movie yet there’s a plot twist here I can’t forget
And I admire your acting ability

And all the songs got put on reply
For another few minutes that we could stay
And all the dialogue we’d rehearsed
For a time to be well read and well versed
One liners and loose ends
Pianos I wish we could play again
Your good looks and my musicianship
What was the start of a beautiful friendship

But you’re no Bogart at heart
These things just tend to fall apart
And I think it could have been a classic
And not straight to video, I’m trying to let it go
And not repeat all the lines you already know
But I was more like Roman Holiday, just trying to run away
And go for a ride, so I did
And as you walked away I’m pretty sure I heard you say:
“Here’s looking at you, kid.”
