You said you're gonna meet me (tonight, tonight)
Tonight's the night (tonight, tonight)
You said you're gonna kiss me (tonight, tonight)
Tonight's the night (tonight, tonight)
Well I don't know
I said I don't know right now
I might love you so (tonight, tonight)

You say you're gonna make me (tonight, tonight)
Turn the lights down low (tonight, tonight)
You said you're gonna make me (tonight, tonight)
Feel all aglow (tonight, tonight) 
Well I don't know 
I don't know right now
I might love you so (tonight, tonight)

I might love you so much
You may break my heart
I may want you so much
And all my dreams may be torn apart

You say you're gonna love me (tonight, tonight)
Tonight's the night (tonight, tonight) 
You say you're gonna hold me (tonight, tonight)
Tonight's the night (tonight, tonight)
Well I don't know 
Said I don't know right now 
I might love you so (tonight, tonight)

Let's take a chance (tonight, tonight)
It's gonna be a great romance (tonight, tonight)
Feel it in my heart now (tonight, tonight)
It's gonna be a great romance (tonight, tonight)
Upsettin' my soul (tonight, tonight)
Gonna be a great romance (tonight, tonight)
Let's take this chance
