Lyrics

On a Night Like This

 

The moon smiles a Cheshire Cat smile dressed in her pearly gown

Stars tumble and fall on a night like this showering wishes down

The boys have stopped their fighting.  The girls say, “It’s alright.”

And every mother’s child has come home tonight

 

You can almost smell the ocean though it’s a hundred or more miles away

If you blur your eyes just right, you might see the Milky Way

So kiss me long and kiss me deep. I’ll watch you while you sleep

New lovers swoon while old ones’ comfort keep

 

On a night like this, a night like this

No one wakes up quite the same after a night like this

 

Laughing and fireflies fill the air. Kids all dance the street light dance

Their mothers call and those children stall like they’ll never get another chance

But something grand is coming. You can feel it in the wind

 Or maybe it’s just some angel spreading her wings

 

On a night like this, a night like this

No one wakes up quite the same after a night like this
