One Hour From Now

One Hour From Now

It’s 8:00 p.m. and the bar just opened
And I was the first one through the door
To take my spot in this booth by the jukebox
Just like so many nights before

I need to get out and make some new friends
Start trying to get back on my feet
But heartache can be a jealous companion
And it just won’t let go of me

Chorus:
One hour from now
She’ll be sitting on that same barstool
Having a drink with her new boyfriend
While I sit here and play the same old fool
My heart will be broken again
One hour from now

I’ve got to find me a new place to drink
Where no one knows she used to be mine
Maybe with a little change of scenery
I could learn to have a good time

But something keeps bringing me back again
Though I don’t understand the allure
I reckon my heart’s used to being broken
And there’s one thing I know for sure

Chorus:
One hour from now
She’ll be sitting on that same barstool
Having a drink with her new boyfriend
While I sit here and play the same old fool
My heart will be broken again
One hour from now

Bridge:
I know she knows that I’m watching
I’m sure she feels sorry for me
But I am stuck in a miserable rut
And I don’t know how to shake free

Chorus:
One hour from now
She’ll be sitting on that same barstool
Having a drink with her new boyfriend
While I sit here and play the same old fool
My heart will be broken again
One hour from now
