1) Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton

A thrilling chase (a wondrous place)

For you and me”

You go and save the best for last”

Somewhere only we know?

Somewhere only we know”

A little more time

On you”

If you give me a chance

I can love you like that”

The sweetest dream will never do

I’d still miss you baby

And I don’t want to miss a thing”

While your lips are close to mine would last forever

Forever ’til the end of time (magic)”

Watchin’ the signs along the way

Talkin’ it over, just the two of us

Workin’ together day to day

Opening Lyrics

“Maybe I’m amazed at the way you love me all the time

Baby, I’m amazed at the way you pulled me out of time

You hung me on a line

Maybe I’m amazed at the way I really need you”

For a thousand years

I’ll love you for a thousand more”

Crazy for you”

“I don’t need no money, fortune, or fame

I’ve got all the riches baby one man can claim

Well I guess you’d say

What can make me feel this way

My girl, my girl, my girl”
