Maria: Tonight, tonight, it all began tonight,
I saw you and the world went away
Tonight, tonight, there’s only you tonight
What you are, what you do, what you say
Tony: Today, all day, I had the feeling
A miracle would happen. I know now I was right.
Both: For here you are
And what was just a world is a star, tonight.

Tonight, tonight, the world is full of light
With suns and moons all over the place
Tonight, tonight, the world is wild and bright
Going mad, shooting sparks into space
Today, the world was just an address
A place for me to live in, no better than all right
And here you are and what was just a world is a star

Tony: Tonight, won’t be just any night,
Tonight there will be no morning star.
Tonight, tonight, I’ll see my love tonight.
And for us, stars will stop where they are.
Maria: Today the minutes seem like hours,
The hours go so slowly, and still the sky is light…
Oh moon, grow bright,
And make this endless day endless night! Tonight!
