Little Things That Count lyrics

She said we could just sleep together,
Thered be nothing wrong.
We could just hold each other with our clothes on.
I went to answer, I dont think we should.
Then I heard a voice say, yeah, I guess we could.
She kissed me lightly and said you know sometimes when youre down,

Its the little things that count
Its the little things that count
Its the little things...

She said it was too late, I really shouldnt try to drive.
She unbuttoned my shirt and whispered just close your eyes.
Here, let me take your boots off, you know sometimes when your lucks run out

Its the little things that count
Its the little things that count
Its the little things...

Bridge: her dress rode lightly as she walked
Then she pulled the covers down.

(harmonica break)

Well I was so dry, she held a water glass to my lips,
And the polish on her nail was chipped.
She said she had a boyfriend that I reminded her of.
His hair was the same muddy brown; she stuck her tongue in my mouth...
