When you called me and said you had to see me
I thought you meant to start our life anew
But you told me you would wed tomorrow and you just wanted one last randezvous
Tonight is our last night together at dawn till tomorrow you'll be gone
But darling this night would last forever if I could hold back the dawn
[ steel ]
When you walk down the aisle with him tomorrow
To take his name and whisper dear I do
Will you be thinkin' of the future darling or thinkin' of my last night with you
I wish you'd never mention your tomorrow darling when you call me on the phone
But there wouldn't be a new tomorrow if I could hold back the dawn
