England Dan & John Ford Coley – I'd Really Love To See You Tonight lyrics

Hello, yeah, it's been a while.
Not much, how about you?
I'm not sure why I called.
I guess I really just wanted to talk to you.

And I was thinking maybe later on.
We could get together for a while.
It's been such a long time.
And I really do miss your smile.

I'm not talking about moving in.
And I don't want to change your life.
But there's a warm wind blowing the stars around.
And I'd really love to see you tonight.

We could go walking through a windy park.
Or take a drive along the beach.
Or stay at home and watch tv.
You see it really doesn't matter much to me.
I'm not talking about moving in
And I don't want to change your life
But there's a warm wind blowing the stars around
And I'd really love to see you tonight.

I won't ask for promises.
So you don't have to lie.
We've both played that game before.
Say I love you and say goodbye.

Chorus x2

The End

    I know most see this as a one night stand scenario, but the whistgul way he sings makes me feel deep down he really hopes to reconnect with her long term. She's the girl who got away and he never forgot. He's suggesting taking it slow not to frighten her off. I see much more than the classic ONS.

    Oh, don't you guys get it? They were lovers back when, and for some reason, they didn't end up with each other, though they loved each other deeply. He never forgot her, even though they both probably married other people. He will never get her out of his mind and would just like to see her again (maybe just one more time).

    He realizes that his intergalactic space travel hot rod won't fit in her garage, so he parks in the surf, but realizes that she is just a human and would probably rather not take a ride along the beach and would prefer to rot her brain by watching the telly, which, little does she know, has been providing a pathway for neural atomizers to destroy both logic and the ability to speak, which is why he does all of the talking. Simple, really.

    No this is a song about true love. They were once friends and something happened and they lost touch and he decided to call her to hang out with no strings attached! Kinda like lets see what happens as the night progresses. But the words in this song are definately great lines to use on someone you really want to be with that you miss and possibly spend the rst of you life with.

    Two people who used to have a relationship and the one person really misses the other. He just wants to spend some time with her, even though he knows, for some reason that they will never have a relationship. He calls her and makes small talk, and presents some different activites they could do together just so they can be together one last time. He wants to say goodbye and move on.
