I bet you'd never guess who I saw tonight
Guess you didn't see me in those low dim lights
I knew who she was
By the ring still on her hand
Sure looked like you still wanted to be her man

So I guess that means that things are better
Must not be so bad at home
I thought it looked like you were leavin'
But it don't
And I heard you tell her you still love her
So it doesn't matter what you say
I saw it all
From a table away

I thought she was pretty
She's nothing like the things you said
The woman you described
Couldn't even turn your head
The two of you look lost inside a world all your own
Like you couldn't wait to get her alone

So I guess that means that things are better
Must not be so bad at home
I thought it looked like you were leavin'
But it don't
And I heard you tell her you still love her
So it doesn't matter what you say
I saw it all
From a table away

And I heard you tell her you still love her
So it doesn't matter what you say
I saw it all
From a table away
Yes you're gonna stay
A table away

Song facts

"From a Table Away" is the title of a song co-written and recorded by American country artist Sunny Sweeney. It was released on June 28, 2010 as the lead-off single to her upcoming self-titled second studio album. Sweeney co-wrote the song with Bob DiPiero and Karyn Rochelle. The song is Sweeney's fourth single release, although it is her first charted single on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

Bobby Peacock of Roughstock reviewed the song favorably, comparing Sweeney's delivery to Natalie Maines (of the Dixie Chicks) and Miranda Lambert, and complimenting the "simple and traditional" production. Sam Gazdziak of The 9513 gave the song a thumbs up, describing the song as "unmistakeably country, from the prominent steel guitar to the time-honored theme of marital infidelity." He also highlights Sweeney's approach to the song as "sophisticated sadness," drawing comparison to Miranda Lambert's "The House That Built Me."

"From a Table Away" debuted at #58 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the week of June 26, 2010. In January 2011, the song became Sweeney's first Top 20 hit on the chart. It also debuted at #96 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 for the week of January 22, 2011.
