Dire Straits – Wonderful Tonight lyrics

It's late in the evening
She wonders what clothes to wear
She puts on her make up
And brushes her long blonde hair.
And then she asked me
Do I look alright?
I said yes, you look wonderful tonight

We go to a party
And everyone turns to see
This beautiful woman walking around with me
And then she asked me
Do you feel alright?
I said yes, I don't feel good
I feel wonderful because I see
No love light in your eyes
And the wonder of it all
Is that you just don't realize
How much I love you.

It's time to go home now
And I got a big headache
So i give her the car keys
She helps me to bed
And then I told her
As I turned out the lights
I say my darling
You were wonderful tonight
Oh my darling,
You were wonderful tonight
