The Way that I Miss YouTo Jason Polecheck's previous piece
A Night Like Tonight

A night like tonight.
The kind of night you wish you had a friend like Tom Waits.
The kind of night when cars wonít start,
but bar fights do,
and women start telling lies.
The kind of night when you want to pick up a woman,
just to leave her in the morning.
Or the kind of night you accuse the bartender
of watering down your scotch.
The kind of night, that if any woman asked
what you were writing about,
youíd have to say her.
The kind of night that started three days ago.
The girl of your dreams just left with a sailor,
your shoes are too tight,
you canít seem to get drunk,
but you get in a fight.
I have an awful feeling,
that itís that kind of night.
