You’re wonderful tonight.

13 Jul

Mode: sentimental.

I love this song. Still and always love this song.

It’s late in the evening
She’s wondering what clothes to wear
She puts on her make up
And brushes her long blonde hair
And then she asks me
Do I look alright
And I say yes, you look wonderful tonight

We go to a party
And everyone turns to see
This beautiful lady
That’s walking around with me
And then she asks me
Do you feel alright
And I say yes, I feel wonderful tonight

I feel wonderful
Because I see the love light in your eyes
And the wonder of it all
Is that you just don’t realize
How much I love you

It’s time to go home now
And I’ve got an aching head
So I give her the car keys
She helps me to bed
And then I tell her
As I turn out the light
I say my darling, you were wonderful tonight
Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight.

-Eric Clapton : ‘Wonderful Tonight’

But then I stumbled upon this,

“Wonderful Tonight” also revealed the dark side of Clapton’s relationship. The song’s narrator has too much to drink and has to be carried home by his unnamed love. But all’s well that ends well, because through his aching head, the narrator tells his love twice, “Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight.” Many recently wedded couples agreed.

Despite of that I still love the song. Full stop!
