“Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight.” ~ Lyrics from the song “Wonderful Tonight” by Eric Clapton.
If I had to choose a favorite song, this would probably be it. I love that the lyrics, on the surface, seem so very simple – they describe a night out by a couple but in reality, these lyrics reflect a deep, intense love between two people who are at each other’s side from the first moment of the evening to the last. Not only in body but in soul. This, in my opinion, is one of the best love songs in existence. How can it not be with lyrics like, “I feel wonderful because I see the love light in your eyes.”? Deep, passionate love can feel like a drug and this song expresses that very feeling. ~Gia
Here are the full lyrics:
It’s late in the evening; she’s wondering what clothes to wear.
She’ll put on her make-up and brushes her long blonde hair.
And then she asks me, “Do I look all right?”
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 all right?”
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 and 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.”
