Tonight Carmen Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Carmen... Carmen... Carmen...
Tonight I am aching, my body is shaking
Tonight Carmen's coming back home
Tonight there'll be no room for tears in my bedroom
Verse 2
Tonight Carmen's coming back home.
Tonight as I stand here I notice my hand here
Is trembling as never before
My feelings I can't hide, resistance has all died
Verse 3
My pride will rush outside
The moment she walks through the door.
The lips that have kissed her,
That's loved her and missed her
Verse 4
Are lips that have cursed her at night
In anguish and torment, I've cursed as the night went
From darkness till dawn's golden light
I thought of just taking these two hands and breaking
Verse 5
The body I'm waiting to touch
I find while I'm waiting, there's no time for hating
While anticipating, the woman I've wanted so much.
I've placed pretty flowers to brighten the hours
Verse 6
I put brand new sheets on the bed
I'm nervous, I'm trembling, recalling remembering
The way that she tosses her head.
I've given much thought to the fact that I ought to
Verse 7
Have more control over my life
How can I fight it, how can I deny it,
There's no way to hide it
The love that I have for my wife.
Verse 8
