[D]I remember every little thing
As if it happened only [G]yesterday
[C]Parking by the lake
And there was [G]not another car in [D]sight
[D]And I never had a girl
Looking any better than [G]you did
And all the [F#]kids at school
They were [G]wishing they were [A]me that [D]night
And now our [Bb]bodies are [F]oh so [C]close and [D]tight
It never fel[Bb]t so good, [F]it never [C]felt so [D]right
And we're [G/D]glowing like the [D]metal on the [A/D]edge of a [D]knife
[G/D]Glowing like the [D]metal on the [A/D]edge of a [D]knife
[G]C'mon! [D]Hold on tight!
[G]C'mon! Hold on [F]tight[A]!  
Though it's [G]cold and [A]lonely in the [D]deep [A]dark [G]night
I can [D]see para[Bm]dise by the [G]dash[A]board [D]light


[G]Ain't no [A]doubt a[D]bout it
We were doub[A]ly   [G]blessed
'Cause we were [Em]barely seventeen
And we were barely [D]dressed
[G]Ain't no [A]doubt a[D]bout it
[G]Baby got to [A]go and [D]shout it
[G]Ain't no [A]doubt a[D]bout it
[D]We were dou[A]bly [G]blessed
'Cause we were [Em]barely seventeen
And we were barely [D]dressed

[D]Baby doncha hear my heart
[D]You got it drowning out the [G]radio
I've been [C]waiting so long
For you to [G]come along and have some [D]fun  
[D]And I gotta let you know
[D]No you're never gonna re[G]gret it
So open [F#]up your eyes I got a [G]big surprise
It'll [E]feel all right
Well I [A]wanna make your motor [D]run  
And now our [Bb]bodies are [F]oh so [C]close and [D]tight
It never [Bb]felt so [F]good, it never [C]felt so [D]right
And we're [G/D]glowing like the [D]metal on the [A/D]edge of a [D]knife
[G/D]Glowing like the [D]metal on the[A/D] edge of a [D]knife
[G]C'mon! Hold on [D]tight!
[G]C'mon! Hold on [F]tight! [A]    

Though it's [G]cold and l[A]onely in the [D]deep [A]dark [G]night
[G]I can see para[D]dise by the [F#m]dashboard [G]light
Though it's [Em]cold and [D]lonely in the [Bm]deep dark [A]night (in the [F#m]deep     [F#/Bb]dark night)
[G]Para[D]dise by the [A]dashboard [D]light

[G]You got to [A]do what you [D]can  
And let [G]Mother Nature [A]do the [D]rest
[G]Ain't no [A]doubt about [D]it  
We were do[A]ubly [G]blessed
'Cause we were [Em]barely seventeen
[Em]And we were barely-

[A]We're gonna go all the way tonight
We're gonna go all the way
And tonight's the night...
We're gonna go all the way tonight
We're gonna go all the way
And tonight's the night...
We're gonna go all the way tonight
We're gonna go all the way
And tonight's the night...
We're gonna go all the way tonight
We're gonna go all the way
And tonight's the night...

[Em7]OK, here we go, we got a real pressure cooker going here,
Two down, nobody on, no score, bottom of the ninth,
There's the windup, and there it is, a line shot up the middle,
Look at him go. This boy can really fly! He's rounding first and really
turning it on now, he's not letting up at all, he's gonna try for
second; the ball is bobbled out in center, and here comes the
throw, and what a throw! He's gonna slide in head first, here he
comes, he's out! No, wait, safe-safe at second base, this kid
really makes things happen out there. Batter steps up to the
plate, here's the pitch-he's going, and what a jump he's got,
he's trying for third, here's the throw, it's in the dirt-safe at
third! Holy cow, stolen base! He's taking a pretty big lead out
there, almost daring him to try and pick him off. The pitcher
glances over, winds up, and it's bunted, bunted down the third
base line, the suicide squeeze is on! Here he comes, squeeze
play, it's gonna be close, holy cow, I think he's gonna make it!

[A]Stop right there![G]    
I [D]gotta [A]know right now!
[A]Before we go any further!
Do you [G]love me?
[G]Will you love me forever?
Do you [D]need me?
[D]Will you never leave me?
Will you m[C]ake me so happy for the [G]rest of my life?
Will you [A]take me away and will you make me your wife?
Do you [G]love me!?
[G]Will you love me forever!?
Do you [D]need me!?
[D]Will you never leave me!?
Will you [C]make me happy for the [G]rest of my life!?
Will you [A]take me away and will you make me your wife!?
I gotta [G]know right now
Before [A]we go any further
Do you [G]love me!?
Will you [D]love me forev[A]er!?

[A]Let me [G]sleep on it
Baby, baby let me [D]sleep on it
Let me [C]sleep on it
And I'll [G]give you an answer in the [D]morning
Let me [G]sleep on it

[G]rest of my life? (And I'll give you an answer in)
Will you [A]take me away and will you make me your wife? (the morning)
I gotta [G]know right now!
Before we [A]go any further
Do you [G]love me?
And will you [D]love me forever?

Let me [D#]sleep on it - will you love me forever?
Let me [E]sleep on it - will you love me forever?


I couldn't [F]take it any longer
[F]Lord I was crazed
And when the [C]feeling came upon me
Like a [F]tidal wave
I started [C]swearing to my god and on my [G]mother's grave
That I would [F]love you to the [G]end of [C]time
I swore that I would [F]love you to the [G]end of [C]time! [G]    

So now I'm [C]praying for the [G]end of [C]time
To [F]hurry up [G]and [C]arrive
'Cause [C]if I gotta [G/B]spend another [Am]minute with you
I don't [G]think that I can really survive
I'll never [F]break my promise or forget my vow
But [C]God only knows what I can [G]do right now
I'm [C]praying for the [G]end of [C]time
It's all that I can [Am]do   
[C]Praying for the [G]end of [C]time,
So I can [F]end my [G]time with [C]you!!

It was [F/C]long a[C]go (It never felt so good)
and it was [G/C]far a    [C]way (It never felt so righ)
And it was [F/C]so much [C]better (And we were glowing like A metal)
that it [G/C]is today[C] (on the edge of a knife)

It was [F/C]long a[C]go (It never felt so good)
and it was [G/C]far a    [C]way (It never felt so righ)

that it [G/C]is today[C] (on the edge of a knife)

I remember every little thing
As if it happened only yesterday
Parking by the lake
And there was not another car in sight
And I never had a girl
Looking any better than you did
And all the kids at school
They were wishing they were me that night
And now our bodies are oh so close and tight
It never felt so good, it never felt so right
And we're glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
C'mon! Hold on tight!
C'mon! Hold on tight!
Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night
I can see paradise by the dashboard light

Ain't no doubt about it
We were doubly blessed
'Cause we were barely seventeen
And we were barely dressed
Ain't no doubt about it
Baby got to go and shout it
Ain't no doubt about it
We were doubly blessed
'Cause we were barely seventeen
And we were barely dressed

Baby doncha hear my heart
You got it drowning out the radio
I've been waiting so long
For you to come along and have some fun
And I gotta let you know
No you're never gonna regret it
So open up your eyes I got a big surprise
It'll feel all right
Well I wanna make your motor run
And now our bodies are oh so close and tight
It never felt so good, it never felt so right
And we're glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
C'mon! Hold on tight!
C'mon! Hold on tight!

Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night
I can see paradise by the dashboard light
Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night (in the deep dark night)
Paradise by the dashboard light

You got to do what you can
And let Mother Nature do the rest
Ain't no doubt about it
We were doubly blessed
'Cause we were barely seventeen
And we were barely-

We're gonna go all the way tonight
We're gonna go all the way
And tonight's the night...
We're gonna go all the way tonight
We're gonna go all the way
And tonight's the night...
We're gonna go all the way tonight
We're gonna go all the way
And tonight's the night...
We're gonna go all the way tonight
We're gonna go all the way
And tonight's the night...

Will you make me happy for the rest of my life!?

Let me sleep on it
Baby, baby let me sleep on it

And I'll give you an answer in the morning
Let me sleep on it
Baby, baby let me sleep on it
Let me sleep on it
And I'll give you an answer in the morning

I gotta know right now!
Before we go any further
Do you love me?
And will you love me forever?

Let me sleep on it - will you love me forever?
Let me sleep on it - will you love me forever?

I couldn't take it any longer
Lord I was crazed
And when the feeling came upon me
Like a tidal wave
I started swearing to my god and on my mother's grave
That I would love you to the end of time
I swore that I would love you to the end of time!

So now I'm praying for the end of time
To hurry up and arrive
'Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you
I don't think that I can really survive
I'll never break my promise or forget my vow
But God only knows what I can do right now
I'm praying for the end of time
It's all that I can do
Praying for the end of time,
So I can end my time with you!!

It was long ago (It never felt so good)
and it was far away (It never felt so righ)
And it was so much better (And we were glowing like A metal)
that it is today (on the edge of a knife)

It was long ago (It never felt so good)
and it was far away (It never felt so righ)
And it was so much better (And we were glowing like A metal)
that it is today (on the edge of a knife)

It was long ago (It never felt so good)
and it was far away (It never felt so righ)
And it was so much better (And we were glowing like A metal)
that it is today (on the edge of a knife)
