Glen Hansard – Maybe Not Tonight lyrics

Echoes of another time
Playing lightly on my mind
There's many rivers still cross
To temper bitterness and loss,
Though what you say is true
This might be it for me and you
Maybe we can draw that line
Maybe another time.
Well I wanna do what's right
But maybe not tonight.

Memories of another town
Those pretty eyes, that pretty frown.
In the long grass where we lay
And let the whole world fall away.
And though in time we've walked apart,
You were always in my heart
Maybe we should say goodbye
But maybe not tonight.

I remember you were just a child
Burning brightly and running wild
We married on an August night
No priest, no church, just the big moon shining bright.
Maybe we should be moving on,
And figure what is done is done
Maybe we should break those vows
Ah, but maybe not right now
Maybe we should do what's right
But baby not tonight.
Maybe we should both just do what's right
But baby not tonight.
