This Night

Janis Ian

Here I am dressed for the ball
Does he still like me, will he call?
Tonight's the night
Will he remember my name?
I've written his all over the sky
Tonight's the night
I'm gonna make him mine

And the lights will go swirling 'round and 'round
and the bells will ring on high
and I'll laugh until I cry the night away
This night will be mine forever now
'cause forever is his name
and the lights will keep swirling and burning up the day
Tonight's the night

Here I am dancing at last
Holding my own even when the band plays fast
Tonight's the night
What if the band plays too slow?
Will he forget me and leave me stranded?
How do you know just how far to go?

And the lights will go swirling 'round and 'round
and the bells will ring on high
and I'll laugh until I cry the night away
This night will be mine forever now
'cause forever is his name
and the lights will keep swirling and burning up the day
Tonight's the night

Here I am ready for bed
Do I look pretty or just well-fed?
Tonight's the night
What if I look like a fool
Maybe I just better wait and see
what he's gonna do - or maybe he's scared, too

And the lights will go swirling 'round and 'round
and the bells will ring on high
and I'll laugh until I cry the night away
This night will be mine forever now
'cause forever is his name
and the lights will keep swirling and burning up the day
Tonight's the night
