Songtekst

Boy:
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
Come on
Hold on tight
Come on
Hold on tight

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

Girl:
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

Boy:
'Cause we were barely seventeen
And we were barely dressed

Baby don't you 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
Come on
Hold on tight
Come on
Hold on tight

Though it's cold and lonley in the deep dark night
I can see paradise by the dashboard light
Though it's cold and lonley 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 allt he way
An tonight's the night
...

Radio Broadcast:
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 wind-up 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
glance over, winds up, and it's bunted, bunted
down the third base line, the suicide squeeze in on!
Here he comes, squeeze play, it's gonna be close,
Here's the throw
There's the play at the plate
Holy cow, I think he's gonna make it!

Girl:
Stop right there!
I gotta know right now!
Before we go any further

Do you love me?
Will you love me forever?
Do you need me?
Will you never leave me?
Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life?
Will you take me away and will you make me your wife?

Do you love me?
Will you love me forever?
Do you need me!?
Will you never leave me!?
Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life?
Will you take me away and will you make me your wife?

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

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

Girl:
I gotta know right now
Do you love me?
Will you love me forever?
Do you need me?
Will you never leave me?
Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life?
Will you take me away and will you make me your wife?

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

What's it gonna be boy?
Come on
I can wait all night
What's it gonna be boy? Yes or no?
What's it gonna be boy?
Yes or no?

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

Girl:
I gotta know right now

Boy (& Girl):
Let me sleep on it
Baby, baby let me sleep on it
Let me sleep on it
And I'll give you my answer in the morning
(Do you love me?
Will you love me forever?
Do you need me?
Will you never leave me?
Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life?
Will you take me away and will you make me your wife?)

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

Boy:
Let me sleep on it
Girl:
Will you love me forever?
Boy:
Let me sleep on it
Girl:
Will you love me forever?

Boy:
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 (ooh ooh)
Praying for the end of time
So I can end my time with you

Boy (& Girl):
It was long ago and it was far away
And it was so much better than it is today
(It never felt so good
It never felt so right
And we were glowing like
A metal on the edge of a knife)
