​Be Tonight

This song is by Nektar and appears on the album The Prodigal Son (2001).

Just before you go out tonight
Leave a little thought for me
Watching John and his crazy life
Take pity on me

I want no part of this weekend
'Cause I was doin' alright
Then the phone rang and the message said
I won't be home tonight

What was it that you were thinking
Did you feel the night
Oh I caught myself slowly wishing
That it would be tonight
Tonight

Took some time at the Asia bar
Started comin' on strong
Oh I was heading out for that mountain road
I was already gone
John said I was a lucky man
Luckier than the rest
Pointed out I had a loving wife
And I could forget the rest

How did I know you were thinking
That you feel the night
Oh I caught myself slowly wishing
That it would be tonight
Tonight

What was it that you were thinking
That made you feel the night
Oh I caught myself slowly wishing
That it would be tonight
Tonight

I want no part of this weekend
'Cause I was doin' alright
Then the phone rang and the message said
I won't be home tonight

What was it that you were thinking
That made you feel the night
Oh I caught myself slowly wishing
That it would be tonight
Tonight

How did I know you were thinking
That you feel the night
Oh I caught myself slowly wishing
That it would be tonight
Tonight
