Michael Johnson - This Night Won't Last Forever

Everybody likes a celebration, happy music and conversation,
But I'd be lyin' if I said I didn't have the blues.
In the corner there's a couple dancin',from the kitchen I can hear her laughin',
Oh I - wish I was celebratin' too.

I know this night won't last forever,
I know the sun's gonna shine sometime,
I need some hope for a bright tomorrow,
To show this heart is gonna mend just fine.

So pardon me for my disposition,wish I didn't have to sit and listen,
She's playin' the same old songs on the stereo,
She's been lyin' since the day I met her,I'd be better off to just forget her,
Oh I - would rather be lonesome or go.

I know this night won't last forever,
I know the sun's gonna shine sometime.
I need some hope for a bright tomorrow,
To show this heart is gonna mend just fine.

Such a ridiculous situation pretending there's nothing wrong,
She's comin' on with the invitation I wonder who is takin' her home.

I know this night won't last forever,
I know the sun's gonna shine sometime,
I need some hope for a bright tomorrow,
To show this heart is gonna mend just fine.
