Lyrics Edit

Finn with The Talented New Yorkers vocalizing:
I remember every little thing
As if it happened only yesterday
Parking by the lake
And there was not another car in sight
And I never had a girl
Looking any better than you did
And all the kids at school
They were wishing they were me that night

Finn with The Talented New Yorkers:
And now our bodies are, oh, so close and tight
It never felt so good, it never felt so right

Tina and Brittany:
And we're glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife

Brittany:
C'mon, hold on tight
C'mon, hold on tight

Angelina and Madison:
Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night

Blaine and Kurt:
I can see paradise by the dashboard light

Finn:
Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark (with Alissa: night)

Alissa:
In the deep dark night

Finn:
Paradise by the (with Alissa: dashboard light)

Finn with Blaine:
We're gonna go all the way tonight
We're gonna go all the way
Tonight's the night

Finn with Blaine and Brittany:
We're gonna go all the way tonight
We're gonna go all the way
Tonight's the night

Finn with Blaine, Brittany, and Angelina:
We're gonna go all the way tonight
We're gonna go all the way
Tonight's the night

Finn with Blaine, Brittany, Angelina, and Alissa:
We're gonna go all the way tonight
We're gonna go all the way
Tonight's the night

Rachel:
Stop right there
I gotta know right now

Before we go any further
Do you love me?
Will you love me forever?
Do you need me?
Will you never leave me?
Will you make me so happy
For the rest of my life?
Will you take me away
And will you make me your wife?

Finn:
Let me sleep on it (The Talented New Yorkers: Sleep on it)
Baby, baby, let me sleep on it (The Talented New Yorkers: Sleep on it)
Let me sleep on it
And I'll give you an answer in the morning

Rachel:
I gotta know right now!

Rachel with The Talented New Yorkers vocalizing:
Do you love me?
Will you love me forever?
Do you need me?
Will you never leave me?
Will you make me so happy
For the rest of my life?
Will you take me away
And will you make me your wife?
Do you love me?
Will you love me forever?

Finn:
Let me sleep on it

Rachel:
Will you love me forever?

Finn:
Let me sleep on it

Rachel:
Will you love me forever?

Finn with The Talented New Yorkers:
I couldn't take it any longer
Lord I was crazed
And when the feeling came upon me
Like a tidal wave
I started swearing to my god
And on my mother's grave
That I would love you to the end of time
I swore I would love you to the end of time
So now I'm praying for the end of time
To hurry up and arrive
'Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you
I don't think that I can really survive
I'll never break my promise or forget my vow
But God only knows what I can do right now
I'm praying for the end of time
It's all I can do (Alissa: All I can do)
I'm praying for the end of time
So I can end my time with (with Alissa: you)

It was long ago and it was far away, (Rachel: It never felt so good, it never felt so right)
And it was so much better than it is today (Rachel: And we were glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife)
It was long ago and it was far away, (Rachel: It never felt so good, it never felt so right)
And it was so much better than it is today (Rachel: And we were glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife)

Finn and Rachel with The Talented New Yorkers:
Felt so good
Felt so right
Paradise!
