(eric carmen)

I can't sleep nights
Wishing you were here beside me
Can't help feeling
That's way it ought to be
You know we could run (run, run) away
And I couldn't bear to hear
The things they'd say
Oh no

Baby let's pretend
That tonight could live forever
If we close our eyes
And believe it might come true

Baby let's pretend
We could always be together
But for now just let me
Spend the night with you

Somehow, someday
Things are gonna be so different
Don't cry
Some way
I promise it will be all right
So now that we're all alone
I couldn't bear
To ever take you home
Oh no

Baby let's pretend
That tonight could live forever
If we close our eyes
And believe it might come true

Baby let's pretend
We could always live together
But for now just let me
Spend the night with you

So take me now
My love can't wait
We're almost there now darlin'
Darlin' hold me, hold me
Hold me

Baby let's pretend
That tonight could live forever
If we close our eyes
And believe it might come true

Baby let's pretend
We could always live together
But for now just let me
Spend the night with you
