No One’s Getting Married Tonight

Baby look at the sky
I can see the bridge from here
Our future’s never been so clear
The clock is counting
The reasons why
You should leave me on the brink
With a lifetime left to think
About this city and its people
Walking around parks till they day they die
Don’t make me one of them
I guarantee I’ll give this love a try

Here’s what I think
Let’s go and get drunk without my friends
Make sure the evening ends
With making out in the back of every cab
I don’t care where we wake up
If you swear you’ll stay with me
And no one’s getting married tonight
No girl in this bar looks better than you
No matter what they do
They could say, “let’s have a three-way”
We both know the only two things that are true
Is that you’re leaving with me
And no one’s getting married tonight

I have a plan
If we wait a couple years
And develop our careers
This could be more than
A flash in the pan
Flip a good thing into great
Maybe own some real estate
Inside this city so full of people
Riding subways till the day they die
Don’t make me one of them
I guarantee I’ll give this love a try

Here’s what I think
Let’s go and get drunk without your friends
Make sure the evening ends
With getting laid in a white limousine
We’ll listen to Springsteen
I will spend all my Sundays with you
If no one’s getting married tonight
No guy in this club looks better than me
No matter who you see
He could be a shirtless fireman
We know he’s only muscles and tan
And no one’s getting married tonight
Tonight, not tonight

Here’s what I think
Let’s go and get drunk
I’m your friend
And I want this life to end
With no compromises
Let’s be ourselves and get rid of all disguises
I’m scared of the unknown
And you’re scared of being
And there’s nothing wrong
With admitting every fear
They get stronger ever year
Nobody’s getting any younger
I can see our future
It’s shining so bright
Maybe the timing’s not right
Do you own anything white?
Maybe I’m not the one
Let’s get married tonight
Tonight, not tonight
