this night lyrics – billy joel

didn’t i sayi wasn’t ready for a romancedidn’t we promise
we would only be friendsand so we dancedthough it was only a slow dance
i started breaking my promisesright there and thendidn’t i swear
there would be no complicationsdidn’t you wantsomeone who’s seen it all before
now that you’re hereit’s not the same situation
suddenly i don’t remember the rules anymorethis night is mineit’s only you and i
tomorrowis a long time awaythis night can last foreveri’ve been around
someone like me should know betterfalling in love
would be the worst thing i could dodidn’t i sayi needed time to forget her
aren’t you running from someonewho’s not over youhow many nights
have i been lonely without youi tell myselfhow much i really don’t care
how many nightshave i been thinking about youwanting to hold you
but knowing you would not be therethis nightyou’re mineit’s only you and i
i’ll tell youto forget yesterdaythis night we are togetherthis nightis mine
it’s only you and itomorrowis such a long time awaythis night can last forever
tomorrowis such a long time awaythis night can last forever
