not going out tonight

words and music by

john greene

 

late last night i saw this girl,

i never got her name,

she sang, she danced, she smiled at me,

i guess i'll never see her face again

 

she made me think, this lovely girl,

that if someone i didn't know,

could take me up so far so quickly,

maybe one day my true love will show

 

 

so i'm not going out tonight, gonna let it be,

gotta feeling that disco heaven would be hell for me,

no i'm not going out tonight, gonna stay right here

gotta feeling that staying in will, maybe bring her near,

nearer to me yeah, nearer to me

 

 

gonna wait till love finds me before i,

cross that line again,

the more you look the less you find,

the more you spend the less you gain

 

 

so i'm not going out tonight, gonna stay right here

gotta feeling that staying in will, maybe bring her near,

no i'm not going out tonight, gonna let it be,

gotta feeling that 'disco heaven' would be hell for me,

hell on earth for me, hell for me
