Tonight Will Be Fine (Songs From A Room)

Sometimes I find I get to thinking of the past.

We swore to each other then that our love would surely last.

You kept right on loving, I went on a fast,

now I am too thin and your love is too vast.

But I know from your eyes

and I know from your smile

that tonight will be fine,

will be fine, will be fine, will be fine

for a while.

I choose the rooms that I live in with care,

the windows are small and the walls almost bare,

there's only one bed and there's only one prayer;

I listen all night for your step on the stair.

But I know from your eyes

and I know from your smile

that tonight will be fine,

will be fine, will be fine, will be fine

for a while.

Oh sometimes I see her undressing for me,

she's the soft naked lady love meant her to be

and she's moving her body so brave and so free.

If I've got to remember that's a fine memory.

And I know from her eyes

and I know from her smile

that tonight will be fine,

will be fine, will be fine, will be fine

for a while.

Anmerkung(en) zu dem Song:

Auf dem Album "Live Songs" enthält der Song zusätzliche Strophen:

I've looked into the mirrors in numberless places

They all smile back at me with their troublesome faces.

The cards that they dealt me, no there weren't any aces

And the horses never listen to me at the races.

But I know from your eyes ..

There's still one or two of us, walking the street

No arrows of direction painted under our feet

No angels to warn us away from the heat

And no honey to keep us where it is sweet

But I know from your eyes
