"Not Tonight" as written by and Malcolm Pardon Jacqueline Govaert....
Everytime you take me hand

try to understand

what it al does to me

can't you see?

I don't think anyone can say

that they know everything about anything like you and me

so please don't leave


It might be better to be alone

now and then

but not tonight

let me know

let me know

that you care


Maybe I'll try to let you go

maybe I'll try to let you go


But not tonight

I need you so

I need you so

it's not fair


Maybe I'll try to let you go

maybe I'll try to let you go


Look at me, look at you

what's wrong?

'cause I feel like such a fool

such a fool

Do we really feel the same

because you're running away all the time

So it's hard to say

why can't you stay


I should be happy here on my own

but I'm not


But not tonight

let me know

let me know

that you care


Maybe I'll try to let you go

maybe I'll try to let you go


But not tonight

I need you so

I need you so

it's not fair


Maybe I'll try to let you go

maybe I'll try to let you go


Why do you always have to run away from me

is it really so hard to be here

and leave me all by myself

and leave me all by myself

do you ever really really think about me

you should know that I don't want to live like this

'cause I can't be by myself

I can't be by myself


Not tonight

let me know

let me know

that you care


Maybe I'll try to let you go

maybe I'll try to let you go

but not tonight

I need you so

I need you so

it's not fair


Maybe I'll try to let you go

maybe I'll try to let you go


But not tonight

let me know

let me know

that you care


Maybe I'll try to let you go

maybe I'll try to let you go


But not tonight

I need you so

I need you so

it's not fair


Maybe I'll try to let you go

maybe I'll try to let you go
