(verse)
I was by myself at Bobby?s Place sipping on another J & B.
A woman at the bar said ?Hey there, cowboy. I'm comin? apart.
How'd ya like to join me?

(chorus)
It was a fine line, what she had to say.
I didn't want to join her, but I couldn't walk away.
It's a fine line, when to get excited,
And when to take a pass on love.

(verse)
Rackin' up the miles from Portland to Houston, sure can be a lonely game.
I've been tempted by many smiling faces, and deep conversations,
Only the names have changed.

(chorus)
It's a fine line that separates the lanes,
The wheels just keep on turning on the road and in my brain,
It's a fine line when to settle down,
And when to walk away from love,

(bridge)
Love, wrong or right,
For a lifetime or just one night?

(chorus)
It's a fine line when to light a candle,
Send chocolates and flowers, and while away the hours,
It's still a fine line when to settle down,
And when to walk away from love.

(chorus)
It was a fine line, what she had to say.
I didn't want to join her, but I couldn't walk away.
It's a fine line, when to get excited,
And when to take a pass on love.

(chorus)
It's a fine line that separates the lanes,
The wheels just keep on turning on the road and in my brain,
It's a fine line when to settle down,
And when to walk away from love,

(chorus)
It's a fine line when to light a candle,
Send chocolates and flowers, and while away the hours,
It's still a fine line when to settle down,
And when to walk away from love.
When to take a pass on love,
When to walk away from love,(vamp and fade)
