Mike’s Musical Monday – Tonight


How can I light a flame now that it’s gone?
How can I stir the embers now grown cold?
I can’t stand the thought of another day
When apathy’s stole my dreams away
How I wish you’d long for me 
With a tender heartfelt need
How I wish you’d long for me tonight
Long for me tonight
Long for me tonight
How can I play when the strings have lost their tone?
How can I dance when the music’s just all wrong?
I can never be content with memories
Time won’t steal my dreams away
How can I abandon hope for very long
With the thoughts of love embraced so strong
Why should I care how I get to you right now?
Honey, you take my breath away
