Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers — Waiting For Tonight lyrics

I went walking down the boulevard
Past the skateboards and the beggars
I was out looking in the windows
Just out walking, letting my mind roam

If she hung around too much I might take her for granted
But when I was away, she seemed an angel
The only one who really cared about me
The only one without an angle

For so long, I've been lonely
Now I'm too weak to fight

I've been waiting for tonight
(Good night my love)
I've been waiting for tonight
(Sleep tight my love)

Yes and I had a little time to kill
As I crossed the parking lot
And I was feeling lucky just to have a place to go
Yeah my nerves were feeling shot

For so long, I've been weary
There was no end in sight

I've been waiting for tonight
(Good night my love)
I've been waiting for tonight
(Sleep tight my love)

Oh I've been waiting 'round
(Oh)
For a night like this
(Yeah)
Yeah I felt it coming down
(Coming down)
Since her first kiss

(Good night my love)

Yeah and I'm wrestling with my overcoat
Yeah I'm fighting with my thoughts
I'm gonna trust my intuition
I'm gonna hope I don't get lost

For some time, I've been lonely
I've been too weak to fight

I've been waiting for tonight
(Good night my love)
I've been waiting for tonight
(Sleep tight my love)

I've been waiting for tonight
(Good night my love)
I've been waiting for tonight
(Sleep tight my love)

(Good night my love)
(Sleep tight my love)
(Good night my love)
(Sleep tight my love)
