Various Artists – Tonight (From "West Side Story") lyrics

Only you, you're the only thing I'll see forever
In my eyes, in my words and in everything I do
Nothing else but you ever

And there's nothing for me but Maria
Every sight that I see is Maria
Tony, Tony

Always you, every thought I'll ever know
Everywhere I go you'll be
All the world is only you and me

Tonight, tonight
It all began tonight, I saw you
And the world went away

Tonight, tonight
There's only you tonight
What you are, what you do, what you say

Today all day I had the feeling
A miracle would happen
I know now I was right

For here you are
And what was just a world
Is a star, tonight

Tonight, tonight
The world is full of light with suns and moons
All over the place

Tonight, tonight
The world is wild and bright, going mad
Shooting sparks into space

Today the world was just an address
A place for me to live in
No better than all right

But here you are
And what was just a world
Is a star, tonight

I can't stay, go quickly
I'm not afraid
They are strict with me, please
I love you

Good night, good night
Sleep well and when you dream
Dream of me

Good bye
