...Close your eyes close your eyes
and forget all about us tonight.


I don't know how to love him.
What to do, how to move him.
I've been changed, yes really changed.
In these past few days, when I've seen myself,
I seem like someone else.
I don't know how to take this.
I don't see why he moves me.
He's a man. He's just a man.
And I've had so many men before,
In very many ways,
He's just one more.
Should I bring him down?
Should I scream and shout?
Should I speak of love,
Let my feelings out?
I never thought I'd come to this.
What's it all about?
Don't you think it's rather funny,
I should be in this position.
I'm the one who's always been
So calm, so cool, no lover's fool,
Running every show.
He scares me so.
I never thought I'd come to this.
What's it all about?
Yet, if he said he loved me,
I'd be lost. I'd be frightened.
I couldn't cope, just couldn't cope.
I'd turn my head. I'd back away.
I wouldn't want to know.
He scares me so.
I want him so.
I love him so.

Wonderful Tonight - Eric Clapton

It's late in the evening; she's wondering what clothes to wear.
She'll put on her make-up and brushes her long blonde hair.
And then she'll ask me, "Do I look all right?"
And I say, "Yes, you look wonderful tonight."

We'll go to a party and everyone turns to see
This beautiful lady that's walking around with me.
And then she'll ask me, "Do you feel all right?"
And I'll say, "Yes, I feel wonderful tonight."

I feel wonderful because I see
The 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, I've got an aching head,
So I'll give her the car keys and she'll help me to bed.
And then I'll tell her, as I turn out the light,
I'll say, "My darling, you were wonderful tonight.
Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight."
