Elle Varner – Not Tonight lyrics
I'm starin' at him
But I forget to pick my face up off of the floor
We're in a crowd
But it feels like we're alone
Ooooh
Oh my god he just looked at me
And I just wanna tell him something he's never heard
But my lips wont let me tell him, tell him. I would say it but

Maybe,
Maybe in another life
I could be the girl
Who walks up to the guy
And tells him
Tells him how she feels inside
But not tonight
No not tonight

What if he walks toward me
While all the blood is rushin' to my brain
What am I gonna say what am I gonna say?
I may stop breathing
Cuz that's the story
Of my life
Wouldn't it be crazy
If he felt
How I felt
Overwhelmed and terrified
But he took his chance
And he took my my hand
Can I have this dance
If only we were in a cinderella story

Maybe,
Maybe in another life
I could be the girl
Who walks up to the guy
And tells him
Tells him how she feels inside
But not tonight
No not tonight

Who would I be
To make my feelings known
I'd need a little audacity
But it's not in my bones
I'm standing here paralyzed
Broken hearted I could die

I'm staring at him
But I forget to pick my face up from the floor
I feel like a fool
And even though I do
I only wanna tell him that I love him more
More

Maybe,
Maybe in another life
I could be the girl
Who walks up to the guy
And says
"Hey, my name is Elle, and I think you're kinda fly"
But not tonight
No not tonight
Maybe

    This song completely a girl seeing the guy of her dreams but able to tell him how she feels. I think elle varner literally told the story of my life all in 5 minutes of a song especially in the intro where she says "I'm starin' at him But forget to pick my face up off of the floor Were in a crowd But it feels like we're alone" this is excatly how I felt when I first started talking to my future husband btw only 16 lol but I really just in love with this song she did a great job connecting with us young ladies. #storyofmylife.
