Ray Charles – I Wish You Were Here Tonight lyrics

Reading old magazines,
I'm on the road no one to save me girl,
I wish you were here tonight,
There's a knock on my door,
Yes, it's time to give another show,
I wish you were here tonight.
My love is all imagination,
Just a dream without you to make it real,
And, baby, I got a dream,
Burning inside,
No one else around,
Just you and I,
Loving in the fire,
It made us so right,
And I wish you were here tonight.
The T. V is a friend,
Cause I can choose the show with a happy end,
That never ends,
Forever and ever more,
If I make believe your on the show,
Your the lover that says she has to go,
And I end up wishing you were here tonight.
