​Private Conversation

This song is by Lyle Lovett and appears on the album Road To Ensenada (1996).

And his hand it fell behind her
As his arm it reached around
Oh and she looked at the window
And she watched the shade go down

It was a private conversation
No one heard her say
That man she left behind her
Was two thousand miles away

A-singing boy pick up that fiddle
Ooh and play that steel guitar
Ooh and find yourself a lady
Ooh and dance right where you are
Hey ... Hey

There was a lonely girl from nowhere
With a smile all sweet with pain
And she never stopped to wonder
Ooh if she'd see him again

It was a private conversation
No one heard her say
That man that she was looking for
Was only twenty streets away

A-singing boy pick up that fiddle
Ooh and play that steel guitar
Ooh and find yourself a lady
Ooh and dance right where you are
Hey ... Hey

And the band it just kept playing
Oh as she came walking in
Oh and he never stopped to wonder
Ooh if he'd see her again

It was a private conversation
No one heard him say
That girl he left behind him
Was two thousand miles away

He just sang boy pick up that fiddle
Ooh and play that steel guitar
Ooh and find yourself a lady
Ooh and dance right where you are
Hey ... Hey

And the moral of this story
Is I guess it's easier said than done
Oh look at what you've been through
And to see what you've become

Well it's a private conversation
No one hears you say
Well it's a private conversation
Hey ... Hey ... Hey ... Hey

And his hand it fell behind her
As his arm it reached around
Oh and she looked at the window
And she watched the shade go down

It was a private conversation
No one heard her say
It was a private conversation
No one heard her say
It was a private conversation
No one heard her say
It was a private conversation
Hey ... Hey ... Hey ... Hey ... Hey
