Nothing Feels Quite Right



Nothing feels top flight tonight, nothing seems quite right.
There is no high kite tonight, there is no high kite.
Nothing feels so trite tonight, nothing seems quite right.
There is no white knight tonight, there is no white knight.
Nothing feels like might tonight, nothing seems quite right.
There is no more fight tonight, there is no more fight.
Nothing feels tied tight tonight, nothing seems quite right.
There is no fine sight tonight, there is no fine sight.
Nothing feels full bright tonight, nothing seems quite right.
There is no starlight tonight, there is no starlight.
Nothing feels polite tonight, nothing seems quite right.
There is no requite tonight, there is no requite.
Nothing feels true plight tonight, nothing seems quite right.
There is no delight tonight, there is no delight.
