Every morning I watch you walk into the office, you're business suit and matching shoes

With your hair put up neatly, you tug at your glasses and you sit down, just three desks down.

I watch you in the flourescent glare, and my mind drifts away somewhere

And I see you in a different light, your hair falling down with love in your eyes

In my mind, you're a beautiful sight, I see you in a different light,

Just the way I saw you last night.

There's girls at the office, the guys always notice when they walk by, but you're not the type.

They don't know what I know, while some things just don't show in tailored tweeds, that's fine with me.

Let them all think what they want to, as for me when I look at you

I see you in a different light, your hair falling down with love in your eyes.

In my mind, you're a beautiful sight, I see you in a different light

Just the way I saw you last night.

Baby it's you in a different light, your hair falling down with love in your eyes.

In my mind, you're a beautiful sight, I see you in a different light.

Just the way I saw you last night.

"In a Different Light" (sometimes shortened to "Different Light") is a song written by Bob McDill, Dickey Lee and Bucky Jones, and recorded by American country music artist Doug Stone. It was released in February 1991 as the fourth and final single from his self-titled debut album. It peaked at number 1 in both the United States and Canada, thus becoming his first number one hit.

The song is about a male office worker who has a fantasy-come-true about one of his female co-workers, who -- despite her apparent youthful appearance -- is always bespectacled, her hair in a bun and conservatively dressed in business attire. The protagonist takes note of his male co-workers' lack of interest in the woman, while not letting on (to them) about his social encounters with the woman.

It is during these encounters that the protagonist reveals that "I see you (the co-worker) in a different light," remarking that he had seen the woman with her hair worn long and with "love in [her] eyes," revealing her physical beauty to him.

      Girl you know we belong together
      I don't have no time for you to be playing with my heart like this
      You'll be mine forever baby
      You just wait
      We belong together
      And you know that I am right
      Why do you play with my heart?
      Why do you play with my mind?
      Said we'd be forever
      Said it'd never die
      How could you love me and leave me and never
      Say goodbye?
      When I can't sleep at night
      Without holding you tight
      Girl, each time I try I just break down and cry
      Pain in my head
      Oh, I'd rather be dead
      Spinning around and around
      Although we've come
      To the end of the road
      Still I can't let go
      It's unnatural
      You belong to me
      I belong to you
      Although we've come
      To the end of the road
      Still I can't let go
      It's unnatural
      You belong to me
      I belong to you
      Girl, I know you really love me
      You just don't realize
      You've never been there before
      It's only
      Your first time
      Maybe I'll forgive you
      Maybe you'll try
      We should be happy together forever
      You and I
      Will you love me again
      Like you loved me before
      This time I want you to love me much more
      This time instead
      Just come to my bed
      And baby just don't let me go
      Although we've come
      To the end of the road
      Still I can't let go
      It's unnatural
      You belong to me
      I belong to you
      Although we've come
      To the end of the road
      Still I can't let go
      It's unnatural
      You belong to me
      I belong to you
      Girl, I'm here for you
      All those times at night
      When you just hurt me
      And just ran out with that other fella
      Baby I knew about it
      I just didn't care
      You just don't understand how much I love
      Do you?
      I'm here for you
      I'm not about to go out on cheat you
      (Maybe I'll forgive you)
      Just like you did baby
      But that's alright
      I love you anyway
      (Maybe you will try)
      And I'm still going to be here for you until my dying day
      (We should be happy together forever)
      Right now
      I'm just in so much pain baby
      'Cause you just won't come back to me (You and I)
      Will you?
      Just come back to me
      Yes baby, my heart is lonely (Lonely)
      My heart hurts baby (Lonely)
      Yes, I feel pain too
      Baby please
      This time instead just come to my bed
      And baby just don't let me go
      Although we've come
      To the end of the road
      Still I can't let go
      It's unnatural
      You belong to me
      I belong to you
      Although we've come
      To the end of the road
      Still I can't let go
      It's unnatural
      You belong to me
      I belong to you
      Although we've come
      To the end of the road
      Still I can't let go
      It's unnatural
      You belong to me
      I belong to you
      Although we've come
      To the end of the road
      Still I can't let go
      It's unnatural
      You belong to me
      I belong to you

      Billy Currington - Must Be Doin' Somethin' Right
      A woman is a mystery a man just can't understand
      Sometimes all it takes to please her is a touch of your hand
      And other times you've gotta take it slow and hold her all night long
      Heaven knows there's so many ways a man can go wrong I must be doin' something right
      I just heard you sigh
      You leaned into my kiss and closed those deep blue need you eyes
      Don't know what I did to earn a love like this, but baby I
      Must be doin' something right Anywhere you wanna go, baby, show me the way
      I'm open to suggestions, umm, whatever you say
      Tonight's about giving you what you want whatever it takes
      Girl, I hope I'm on the right road, but judging by the smile on your face I must be doin' something right
      I just heard you sigh
      You leaned into my kiss and closed those deep blue need you eyes
      Don't know what I did to earn a love like this, but baby I
      Must be doin' something right Don't know what I did to earn a love like this, but baby I
      Must be doin' something right
      Must be doin' something right

      Josh Turner - Your Man
      Lyrics Baby, lock the doors and turn the lights down low
      Put some music on that's soft and slow
      Baby, we ain't got no place to go
      I hope you understand
      I've been thinking 'bout this all day long
      Never felt a feeling quite this strong
      I can't believe how much it turns me on
      Just to be your man
      There's no hurry, don't you worry
      We can take our time
      Come a little closer, let's go over
      What I had in mind
      Baby, lock the doors and turn the lights down low
      Put some music on that's soft and slow
      Baby, we ain't got no place to go
      I hope you understand
      I've been thinking 'bout this all day long
      Never felt a feeling quite this strong
      I can't believe how much it turns me on
      Just to be your man
      Ain't nobody ever love nobody
      The way that I love you
      We're alone now
      You don't know how long I've wanted to
      Baby, lock the doors and turn the lights down low
      Put some music on that's soft and slow
      Baby, we ain't got no place to go
      I hope you understand
      I've been thinking 'bout this all day long
      Never felt a feeling quite this strong
      I can't believe how much it turns me on
      Just to be your man

      Di si encontraste en mi pasado 
      Una razón para quererme... 
      o para olvidarme 
      Pides cariño, pides olvido 
      Si te conviene 
      No llames corazón 
      Lo que tú tienes... 
      De mi pasado 
      Preguntas todo 
      Que cómo fue; 
      Si antes de amar 
      Debe tenerse fe; 
      Dar por un querer 
      La vida misma sin morir 
      Eso es cariño 
      No lo que hay en ti... 
      Yo para querer 
      No necesito una razón 
      Me sobra mucho, 
      Pero mucho corazón...
