Lyrics

I'm taking you home tonight
I wanna make sure that you're alright
Looks like a cold, cold wind is blowing in
I'm taking you home tonight

We're like a train that's left the tracks
The world is falling apart
I'd gladly help to put it back
But tell me where to start

I'm taking you home (yeah) tonight
I wanna make sure that you're alright
Well, the coat you're wearing is way too thin
I'm taking you home tonight

I read the bad news every day
It's getting harder to cry
Sometimes I'd like to look away
But I can't close my eyes

I'm taking you home (yeah) tonight
I wanna make sure that you're alright
next of kin
I'm taking you home tonight

Say yes, tonight
Say yes, that my suggestion is right
Say yes, to me
And that's the way you want it to be

Oh, I'm taking you home (yeah) tonight
I wanna make sure that you're alright
Looks like a cold, cold wind is blowing in
I'm taking you home tonight

Well, life goes by at such a pace
And trouble's here to increase
I know that we can find the ways
That we can get some peace

I'm taking you home (home) tonight
I wanna make sure that you're alright
Looks like a cold, cold wind is blowing in
I'm taking you home tonight

So say yes, tonight
Say yes, that my suggestion is right
Say yes, to me
And that's the way you want it to be

Well, I'm taking you home (home) tonight
I wanna make sure that you're alright
They say a cold, cold wind is blowing in
The coat you're wearing is way too thin
And notify my next of kin
I'm taking you home tonight
