Tonight you're mine completely
You give your love so sweetly
Tonight the light of love is in your eyes
But will you love me tomorrow?

Is this a lasting treasure
Or just a moment's pleasure?
Can I believe the magic in your sighs?
Will you still love me tomorrow?

Tonight with words unspoken
You said that I'm the only one
But will my heart be broken
When the night (When the night)
Meets the morning sun?

I'd like to know that your love
Is love I can be sure of
So tell me now and I won't ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Will you still love me tomorrow?

Funny how we all run by different clocks, so many comments about the tempo. Come on guys, slow down yourselves a bit.

Maybe it's just because of my personal situation right now, that let's say touches upon the themes of this song, love, but also the vulnerabilities of getting older, wondering where you'll be 10 years from now, and whether you'll be there alone or not... but from this perspective, the song is very, very moving and performed just right.

I like Carole's version better. In the Shirelles bouncy version, it's easy to miss the seriousness of the message. So Carole slows it down, so the solemnity of her words becomes clear. The Shirelles seem to be talking about a kiss after the junior high school dance. Carole's lullubye is sung in bed. It's an intimacy that Carole doesn't take lightly, but he is her one-and-only. Hence the weighty slowness of the song.
I have to fight through the quietness of this to remember how exquisitely it\'s written. Work isn\'t the right place for this. You need a fireplace and a quiet night and a broken heart.

The Shirlles's version is even better; much better than this.

Boring as all hell
Guess there\'s songwriting, and there\'s performance: maybe she wrote it, but the Shirelles sing it so much better...

Great song, but I like the Shirelles and the Phil Spector Wall of Sound version.
I lost all interest in Carole back in the 70s. However, gotta give her credit for having penned this classic. I would prefer the Shirelles\' version, however. That would be a sweet tweak, Bill
That is a quiestion I say sometimes
Tapestry was and is one of the greatest albums of all time. :clap:
