Have I taken you for granted?
but I know what matters most to you
In slow motion as you walk on by
pictures of you forever in my mind

hold me tonight
tonight, tonight
hold me tonight
tonight, tonight

Tomorrow keeps bringing me down
rest her right here
Follow me to the end of the sea
good lookin' out

Knew my years I thought
sometimes dreams come true
we'll tell everyone
it's always been there
we'll convince this to you

hold me tonight
tonight, tonight
hold me tonight
tonight, tonight

Tomorrow keeps bringing me down
rest her right here
Follow me to the end of the sea

Time is secrets are known
as they fall onto you
my hands reach out
and into nothing
but your big turning eyes

on that summer night
standing outside i said too much
in one of
you scream my name
and i can't rip out anything else

you said
i heard what you said
i loved what you said
when you said it to me

you sing
sing me that song
in the back seat
singing in my mind

hold me tonight
tonight, tonight
hold me tonight
tonight, tonight
hold me tonight
tonight, tonight
hold me tonight
tonight, tonight
