Going Out Tonight Lyrics

Artist: Mary Chapin Carpenter

(Mary Chapin Carpenter/John Jennings)

Im going out tonight to find myself a friend
I need a welcome smile and the grasp of a knowing hand
Gonna sit for hours in a small dark place
Catch up with a long lost face
And talk about how long its really been

Im going out tonight with perfume on my wrist
I need to find someone to show me what Ive missed
And when I see that someone sitting there
Gonna tell your memory I dont care
If he offers something more than just a kiss

Underneath the moon so bright
I wanna fall tonight
Beneath a spell
Underneath the sky so clear
I wanna find someone waiting there
Who used to know me well

Im going out tonight without a chaperone
Im going to leave that meddling heart of mine at home
Cause it dont like crowds or closing time
Neon blues or pick-up lines
It makes me spend my Friday nights alone

Underneath the moon so bright
Underneath the sky so clear

Im going to tell myself that someone I adore
Is the one Im with aint that what friends are for
'Cause my empty arms are open wide
Im long on spite and short on pride
And the old way isnt working anymore
Im going out tonight to find myself a friend
