Wonderful Night

VERSE 1
Come on, come on; let’s go downtown
We can see a movie or talk about your mom
IT’S A WONDERFUL NIGHT
Summer don’t last long
We don’t have to hold hands
We don’t have to kiss
But we can do those things
If we feel like it
IT’S A WONDERFUL NIGHT
Feelings like this don’t last long

Look at the moon
Almost full – In the sky
Cool and bright
On the rise – Tonight
Oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh

VERSE 2
It’s a carnival life, under twinkling stars
Laughing strangers, get in and out of cars
IT’S A WONDERFUL NIGHT
July don’t last long
Not too old
Not quite young
We could spit Shakespeare
We could hold our tongues
IT’S A WONDERFUL NIGHT
Moments like this don’t last long

Short sleeves – warm skin
Standing in – Ticket lines
Awkward grins
Before we begin – the ride….
Feelin’ high
Oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh

INSTRUMENTAL (verse chords)

BRIDGE:
Old beach town
Feels brand new
Run down to the water
Lose our shoes
Lapping waves
Harbor sounds
Shoreline band
Plays a cool new song
Tell me stores – Don’t ever lie
To an open heart – That could use a cry

Outro
Come on, come on; let’s go downtown
We can see a movie or talk about your mom
IT’S A WONDERFUL NIGHT
Summer don’t last long (3x)
