Heartache Tonight
Don Henley/Glenn Frey/Bob Seger/J. D. Souther
Somebody's gonna hurt someone
before the night is through.
Somebody's gonna come undone,
there's nothing we can do.
Everybody wants to touch somebody
if it takes all night.
Everybody wants to take a little chance,
make it come out right.

There's gonna be a heartache tonight,
a heartache tonight, I know.
There's gonna be a heartache tonight,
a heartache tonight, I know, Lord, I know.

Some people like to stay out late,
some folks can't hold out that long.
But nobody wants to go home now,
there's too much goin' on.
This night is gonna last forever,
last all, last all summer long.
Some time before the sun comes up
the radio is gonna play that song.

There's gonna be a heartache tonight,
a heartache tonight, I know.
There's gonna be a heartache tonight,
a heartache tonight, I know, Lord, I know.
There's gonna be a heartache tonight,
the moon shinin' bright,
so turn out the light
and we'll get it right.
There's gonna be a heartache tonight,
a heartache tonight, I know, Lord, I know.

Somebody's gonna hurt someone
before the night is through.
Somebody's gonna come undone,
there's nothing we can do.
Everybody wants to touch somebody
if it takes all night.
Everybody wants to take a little chance,
make it come out right.

There's gonna be a heartache tonight,
a heartache tonight, I know.
There's gonna be a heartache tonight,
a heartache tonight, I know, let's go.
We can beat around the bushes,
we can get down to the bone,
we can leave it in the parkin' lot
but either way
there's gonna be a heartache tonight,
a heartache tonight, I know, oh, I know.
There'll be a heartache tonight,
a heartache tonight, I know.
