Driving home I been thinking about
How good tonight turned out
Never seen the stars shine so bright

Tou were singing karaoke in the car, you were
Carefree I was trying so hard
Looking for the words to get it right

Tonight was magic and you looked beautiful
Should have been so easy to say to you
Oh I tried but I got tongue tied
Blinked my eyes and the moment slipped away
Wish you’d heard what I meant to say

Can’t remember what I said, about your
Pretty green eyes or your little black dress
You must have thought I didn’t care

Then we were talking in your drive, and I
Leaned in for a kiss goodnight
Why didn’t I tell you then and there

Tonight was magic and you looked beautiful
Should have been so easy to say to you
Oh I tried but I got tongue tied
Blinked my eyes and the moment slipped away
Wish you’d heard what I meant to say

Didn’t get too far down the road
Before I reached out for the phone
Had to call you up I couldn’t let it go

Tonight was magic and you looked beautiful
Should have been so easy to say to you
Took me all night hope I got it right
I’ll let you decide if it’s too late
But it couldn’t wait, what I meant to say
