  • The stars and the weather, they won't last forever
    But we've got 'em lined up right now
    We both know in the morning, I'll probably be going
    Chasing the sunshine south
    I'm a half-assed poet
    I'm crazy and I know it
    Just one step ahead or behind
    I ain't much for the morning
    But I've always been good at tonight

    Yesterday's history, tomorrow's a mystery
    Go ahead and guess all you want
    There's no rhyme or reason
    For wasting time thinking 'bout
    What's gonna go right or wrong
    I'm a straight shot, no chaser
    One chance-in-hell taker
    But you can come along for the ride
    I should come with a warning
    Yeah, I've always been good at tonight

    Come on and dance with me
    Throw your arms around me
    I'll follow that fire in your eyes
    Let's take it all right now
    'Fore that moon goes out
    Kiss me like there's no goodbye
    I'm a stone made for rolling
    But I've always been good at tonight

    The stars and the weather, they won't last forever
    But we've got 'em lined up just right
    Who cares where we're going
    'Cause we're getting good at tonight

    Come on and dance with me
    Throw your arms around me
    I'll follow that fire in your eyes
    Let's take it all right now
    'Fore that moon goes out
    Kiss me like there's no goodbye
    I'm a stone made for rolling
    Not much for the morning
    And I'll give you a warning
    I've always been good at tonight Writer/s: BARRY GEORGE DEAN, JOHN THOMAS OSBORNE, THOMAS JOHN OSBORNE, TROY VERGES
