Tonight Is Just For Us ~ Marian Bradfield

Let me take you to the waterfront
The mist will wash away those tears
And if you say it's OK, I'll hold your hand 'til this clears
Do I take it she's hurt you again
This time more painful than before?
I wish I had the nerve to tell her
You don't want no more

'Cause, boy, I love you
More than you'll ever know if the truth be said
These feelings that I'm holding back
Make me more than just a friend
But I can never tell the truth
'Cause I don't want to lose your trust
I know that if you went away
My heart would turn to dust

The walls between us were not made to keep
The sound of crying to themselves
And it's another night of wasted dreams you'll defend
I came so close to telling you today
Boy, you just take those dreams and run
But my selfish heart couldn't say those words
Was that so wrong?


Your kitchen light shines onto my back yard
Your shadow paces back and forth
I sit here in the darkness with my
Strange collection of thoughts
But wait a moment, am I in a dream?
Is that the sound of your back door?
And with a flickering shadow of conscience our eyes hold


Yes, tonight, maybe I'll tell the truth
Please, don't let me lose your trust
Tonight, I'll not send you away
Tonight is just for us
