When You Were by My Side - Lyrics

I'm drinking good Scotch on ice, forget the price
Handmaids, silk suit, leather seats in the coupe
There's a big crowd tonight, waitin' on line
What could be better than this life of mine

The best of the best, all of the rest
Benz limousines, I've met princes and queens
A fine crowd tonight, standing in line
What could be better than this life of mine

Maybe you, watching from the wings
Maybe you, how my memory clings
To the soft sweet kisses, a magical ride
When you were by my side

I got the spotlight on me, I know I'm lucky
Friends on the phone, a suitcase I own
There's a good crowd tonight, autographs to sign
What could be better than this life of mine

I guess you, watching from the wings
Maybe you, how my memory clings
To the soft sweet kisses, a magical ride
When you were by my side

I know all things pass,
Tonight I'm flying First Class
But there's a lounge in a bar
That waits for every star

I got a couple days off, a sore throat and a cough
A rerouted flight, no sleep tonight
And it's raining outside, everything's fine
What could be better than this life of mine

Maybe you, watching from the wings
You, my memory clings
To soft sweet kisses, a magical ride
When you were by my side

Maybe you, how my memory clings
To the soft sweet kisses
To soft sweet kisses, a magical ride
When you were by my side
When you were by my side
When you were by my side...
