Friends
Photographs of your friends in their youth
Smiling through the flash bulb back at you
And on the way home they always said that they were sorry.

And you
Well you could make a federal case
But nothing you will ever, ever say, ever again
Will ever unburn the bulb.

It's not tonight, not tonight,
It's not tonight, no not tonight
And it never will be again
They led you on and now you are an embarrassment
To your family and friends

And tomorrow you'll be famous
And they will be lining up.
The ladies will scream your name.
You'll look into the mirror
To see if things are looking up
But things, they'll look the same.

You've got some vomit on your collar from last weekend
That evening with the poet.
And if your friends could only see him now,
Well they'd know you that you could never love him.

If there were tap dancing on the boulevard
It would make this seem fifty percent less hard.
You can make a grocery list of all your problems
But it won't make it any easier to solve them.

And tomorrow you'll be famous
And we'll be lining up.
The ladies, they'll scream your name.
You'll look into the mirror
To see if things are looking up
But things, they'll look the same.

It's not tonight, not tonight.

It's not tonight, not tonight
And it never will be again.
