Lyrics:

"Tonight"

music by Leonard Bernstein; lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

Click here"Tonight" (clip) sung by Marni Nixon and Jimmy Bryant (a .MP3 file courtesy Sony).

 MARIA:
Only you,
You're the only thing I'll see
Forever.
In my thoughts, in my words
And in everything I do,
Nothing else but you,
Ever.

TONY:
And there's nothing for me but Maria.
Every sight that I see is Maria.

MARIA:
Tony. Tony.

TONY:
Always you,
Every thought I'll ever know,
Everywhere I go, you'll be.

MARIA:
All the world is only you and me!

TONY:
Tonight. Tonight.
It all began tonight.
I saw you and the world went away.

MARIA:
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.

TOGETHER:
For here you are,
And what was just a world is a star
Tonight!

Good night.  Good night.
Sleep well and when you dream,
Dream of me. 
Tonight.

(Reprise)

TONY:
Tonight. 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.
