Jenny's sitting on the sidewalk,
Looking up into his eyes again,
He says "a penny for your thoughts girl",
She says "I never want this night to end".

And then he pulls her up on to her feet,
And then he takes her in his arms,
She puts her hands inside his coat,
Then she looks at him and says "let's dance".

They move together till the moon goes down,
Across the stars of the harvest sky,
To the rythmn of the streetlights,
As the motor cars are gliding by.

It's not about the world outside,
Or for anything that don't feel right,
It's about you and me,
And it's about tonight.

They fade away when the dew comes,
Until they do it all again next year,
Within the echoes of the night they died,
When their motorbike was wrecked right here.

And they never made it to the beach,
They never got to take their chance,
To feel each other in a warm embrace,
To the music of their first slow dance.

It's not about the world outside,
Or for anything that don't feel right,
It's about you and me,
And it's about tonight.
