Is beautiful

Tonight

Tonight your eyes catch mine

From across the room in a crowded hall

You heavenly lip shaded grin

Makes my heart stall

Tonight

Tonight I’ll sing

Songs of serenading

Oh how long I have been waiting

Tonight

I learn your name

And you learn mine just the same

Tonight

I show you love

I hold you close

Tell you, you mean the most

Tonight

My approach is waning

The thrill off confidence dissipating

The passion I feel is all to real

But tonight your heart I will not steal

Tonight

Drifts on

I’ve waited to long

The wells gone dry

You drift right by

My move was internally thwarted

My circuits have shorted

Tonight

I’ve reaped what I’ve sewn

Because tonight,

I leave here alone
