Tonight is What It Means to Be Young (single edit)

I’ve got a dream ‘bout an angel on the beach
And the perfect waves are starting to come
His hair is flying out in ribbons of gold
And his touch has got the power to stun

I’ve got a dream ‘bout an angel in the forest
Enchanted by the edge of a lake
His body’s flowing in the jewels of light
And the earth below him starting to shake

But I don’t see any angels in the city
I don’t hear any holy choirs sing
And if I can’t get an angel, I can still get a boy
And a boy’d be the next best thing—the next best thing to an angel
A boy’ll be the next best thing....

I’ve got a dream ‘bout a boy in a castle
And he’s dancing like a cat on the stairs
He’s got the fire of a prince in his eyes
And the thunder of a drum in his ears

I’ve got a dream ‘bout a boy on a star
Lookin’ down upon the rim of the world
He’s there all alone and dreamin’ of someone like me
I’m not an angel but at least I’m a girl

I’ve got a dream when the darkness is over
We’ll be lyin’ in the rings of the sun
But it’s only a dream and tonight is for real
You’ll never know what it means but you’ll know how it feels:

It’s gonna be over
Before you know it’s begun

Ooh, it’s all we really got—tonight!
Stop your cryin’, hold on—tonight!
Before you know it it’s gone—tonight!
Tonight is what it means to be young!
Tonight is what it means to be young!

Let the revels begin, let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the restless and the broken-hearted
Let the rebels begin, let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the desperate and the broken-hearted

Let the revels begin, let the fire be started
(tonight is what it means to be young…)
We’re dancing for the restless and the broken-hearted
(before you know it it’s gone…)
Let the rebels begin, let the fire be started
(tonight is what it means to be young…)
We’re dancing for the desperate and the broken-hearted
(before you know it it’s gone…)

Say a prayer in the darkness for the magic to come
No matter what it seems—tonight is what it means to be young

(tonight is what it means to be young)
(before you know it it’s gone) …

I’ve got a dream when the darkness is over
We’ll be lyin’ in the rings of the sun
But it’s only a dream and tonight is for real
You’ll never know what it means but you’ll know how it feels

It’s gonna be over
Before you know it’s begun

Ooh, it’s all we really got—tonight!
Stop your cryin’, hold on—tonight!
Before you know it it’s gone—tonight!
Tonight is what it means to be young!
Tonight is what it means to be young!

Let the revels begin, let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the restless and the broken-hearted
Let the rebels begin, let the fire be started
(tonight is what it means to be young…)
We’re dancing for the desperate and the broken-hearted
(before you know it it’s gone…)

Say a prayer in the darkness for the magic to come
‘Cuz no matter what it seems—tonight is what it means to be young
(tonight is what it means to be young)
No matter what it seems tonight is what it means to be young
(tonight is what it means to be young)

No matter what it seems tonight is what it means to be young
(tonight is what it means to be young)
No matter what it seems tonight is what it means to be young
(tonight is what it means to be young)

No matter what it seems tonight is what it means to be young
(tonight is what it means to be young)
No matter what it seems tonight is what it means to be young
(tonight is what it means to be young)

Let the revels begin, let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the restless and the broken-hearted

The things they’re saying and then the things they do
Nothin’s gonna stop us if our aim is true
The things they’re saying and then the things they do
Nothin’s gonna stop us if our aim is true

Let the revels begin, let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the restless and the broken-hearted....
