tonight

lyrics

I hear you talking
About how you ain't got love tonight
I feel you walking in the sand
Letting the darkness take over your light

Well, darling don't despair
You're in your element in my head
Looking lovely tonight
And don't you tell yourself that you ain't the shit
Ain't a question about it, I've been looking all of my life

I feel you hoping that I'm open, to a new love tonight
Your heart is broken, chipped to pieces
Trying to find someone who's decent
To spend the night

But, darling don't despair
You're in your element in my head
Looking lovely tonight
And don't you tell yourself that you ain't the shit
Ain't a question about it, I've been looking all of my life

All of my life, all of my life, all of my life I've been searching for you

And the way she opens eyes
And the way she loses her mind
And the way she wills it to be
Ain't nothing better than roots of a tree
