Spaz Attack

Thoughts from a big spaz who has lots to spaz about.

one of my favorite love songs. i don't imagine the man singing to a young, beautiful woman. i imagine he is singing to his wife of many decades. she's lost her youthfulness and the lines on her face show all that she has been through in her life. such  a sweet, sweet song. (here is the best recording i could find on youtube.)

wonderful tonight by eric clapton

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."
