Nicole Atkins - Maybe Tonight Lyrics


I foresaw you like an old ghost story
From a family tree that was handed down to me

I've known you like a siren song that warns
I have been informed you could be the death of me

But patience bounds an eternal stone
You were meant to be mine
I draw a dual with the cards of gods
That were played in fate and time

I know we'll meet again
Maybe tonight
Just tell me where and when
I know it's never sure
Maybe tonight (2x)

Sky whispers in a baritone
That the mystery always beats what I am shown

Search the the dial for what i need to know
They don't play those songs on my radio
