Johnny Rodriguez – I Want You Tonight Lyrics

I wonder where you are tonight

Tonight I’m sad my heart is weary
I’m wondering if I’m wrong or right
To dream about you though you left me
I wonder where you are tonight

That ol’ rain is cold and slowly falling
Upon my window pane tonight
And though your love is even colder
I wonder where you are tonight

Estoy tan triste esta noche
Pensando si hacer algún bien
Pensar de ti aunque me dejaste
Donde estarás por ahí con quien

That ol’ rain is cold and slowly falling…
