Didn't I say
I wasn't ready for romance?
Didn't we promise
We would only be friends?
And so we danced
Though it was only a slow dance,
I started breaking my promises right there and then

Didn't I swear
There would be no complications?
Didn't you want
Someone who's seen it all before?
Now that you're here
It's not the same situation,
Suddenly I don't remember the rules anymore

This night is mine
It's only you and I
Tomorrow is a long time away
This night can last forever

I've been around
Someone like me should know better
Falling in love
Would be the worst thing I could do
Didn't I say
I needed time to forget her?
Aren't you running
From someone who's not over you?

How many nights
Have I been lonely without you?
I tell myself
How much I really don't care
How many nights
Have I been thinking about you?
Wanting to hold you
But knowing you would not be there

But this night you're mine
It's only you and I
I'll tell you to forget yesterday
This night we are together

This night is mine
It's only you and I
Tomorrow is a long time away
This night can last forever

This night
Ooh
Ooh

Tomorrow is such a long time away
This night can last forever
