I was waiting to receive a follow up date
I was waiting all night long and all day
So would you say you could ask me now?
I would be so glad

I missed the prom last night
Yesterday's too late today
I won't pretend I ever had a date
No I won't pretend

I was in my bedroom
I watched out my window
I saw the girl next door leaving with her date
On Monday morning I asked her how it went
She told me she had fun

I missed the prom last night
Yesterday's too late today
I won't pretend I ever had a date

Don't you know I will never know
How it feels to radiate and glow
When dancing close and being held
I will never know

Hold your loved one now

All the couples walk in
They dance they talk and hug
Everyone waits to see who just might fall in love
If I went I would have dressed nice
I would have made you proud

I missed the prom last night
Yesterday's too late today
I won't pretend I ever had a date
On that night I sat home alone
Everyone else had a date
On my hope chest I hoped
That someone might come to me
But no one came...
