I know it's late, and you're on your way home
But there's something that I'd like to tell you.
Just have to say, you were beautiful tonight,
I mean stunningly beautiful.
I know that every day, you're beautiful.
But I've never seen you look so.....you know.
I know that every day, somebody's bound to tell you, you're beautiful.
But today's my day. And when I get the nerve, I'm gonna say, my God you're beautiful.
By now you're home, so I pick up the phone, and call you.
...voice mail? Oh well.
Unable to speak, I just hang up the phone. And I sit there alone in the darkness.
But you see it was me, and you call me back and you say, is everything ok?
Is something wrong?
Oh, no. Just wanted to make sure you made it home alright. And I wanted to tell you......... uh, good night.
And you're beautiful.
