I`m young enough to still see the passionate boy that I used to be
But I`m old enough to say I got a good look at the other side
I know we got to work real hard, maybe even for the rest of our lives
But right now I just want to take what I can get tonight

While the night is still young
I want to keep making love to you
While the night is still young

I`d like to settle down, get married
And maybe have a child someday
I can see a time coming when
I`m gonna throw my suitcase out
No more separations
Where you have to say goodnight to a telephone
Baby I`ve decided that ain`t what this life is all about

While the night is still young
There`ll never be a lovely view

While the night is still young
I want to try to make the world brand new
While the night is still young

Rock and Roll music was the only thing I ever gave a damn about
There was something that was missing but I never used to wonder why
Now I know you're the one I need to make things right again
And I may lose the battle but you're giving me the will to try

While the night is still young
There`ll never be a long lovely view

Because the night is still young
I`ve got a lot of catching up I`ve got to do
While the night is still young
While the night is still young

While the night is still young
I want to try to make the world brand new

While the night is still young
I want to keep making love to you
While the night is still young
While the night is still young
The night is still young ?????
While the night is still young
I`ve got a lot of catching up to do
While the night is still young
Hold on, hold on, hold on
While the night is still young
