As I sit down to think,
the only thing that bothers me
is that I've turned out as the better man

  And though it's in exhile I stay,
and I know it's better this way
it's hard not to see you in my plans

    I thought that we would stay tonight,
but I guess it won't work that way
    I thought that we would stay tonight,
but I guess it won't work that way
    I thought that we would stay tonight,
but I guess it won't work that way
    I thought that we would stay tonight,
but I guess it won't work that way

Will you come to dinner,
   so we could talk about the year
Will you come to dinner,
   I'm thinking of when we were near
Will you come to dinner,
   so I can hold you in my hands
Will you come to dinner,
   and walk across these crowded sands...

I thought that you would stay tonight,
    but I guess it won't work that way
I thought that you would stay tonight,
    but I guess it won't work that way
I thought that you would stay tonight,
    but I guess it won't work that way
I thought that you would stay tonight,
    but I guess it won't work that way

Will you come to dinner,
   so we could talk about the year
Will you come to dinner,
   I'm thinking of when we were near
Will you come to dinner,
   so I can hold you in my hands
Will you come to dinner,
   and walk across these crowded sands...

  You know that I'm alone,
   But I won't be your little drone

I know that I will come  back
  I got nothin' to show that
you care for me at all...
  So I will ask you once again,
If we can be more than just friends,
'cause I know I'm up for the chance...

I thought that you would stay tonight,
    but I guess it won't work that way

Will you come to dinner,
   so we could talk about the year
Will you come to dinner,
   I'm thinking of when we were near
Will you come to dinner,
   so I can hold you in my hands
Will you come to dinner,
   and walk across these crowded sands...
