Dev:
Darling, the hands of time must always point ahead, yesterday's passed
Today has come and gone, the secret of tomorrow's coming fast
Which bedtime story shall I sing to you when we turn out the lights?
One of eternity or one of just a thousand and one nights?

Is there a mystic with the answers from above?
Is there a goddess with the hourglass of love?
So many questions swirling all around my heart
Is this the end or just the start?

Will I shower you with riches every year the night we met?
Will you take my heart or melt it likes it's gold?
Will our love go on forever or is this all that we get?
Is tonight the last or does the future hold
A lifetime of delights
Or just a thousand and one nights?

Karen:
Darling, you seem to think that I'm the only who has to choose
That you are in control and get to set the rules of win or lose
The bedtime story that I'll sing to you when we turn out the lights
May bring eternity or maybe just a thousand and one nights

There is no mystic with the answers from above
You know the secrets for the way to keep my love
There are a thousand and more ways to win my heart
The list is long but for a start

You can shower me with riches every year the night we met
I may take your heart and melt it like it's gold
Play in someone's perfumed garden and this night's the last you'll get
Play your cards right and your future just might hold
A lifetime of delights
Or just a thousand and one nights
Just a thousand and one nights

Karen:
The man who never chooses finds himself without a choice

Dev:
The lucky ones appear to have it all

Karen:
The tiger's just a kitten when his tamer finds her voice

Dev:
I surely will obey you when you call

Ensemble:
Then will you shower me with riches every year the night we met?
Will you take my heart and melt it likes it's gold?
Will our love go on forever or is this all that we get?
Is tonight the last or does the future hold
A lifetime of delights
Or just a thousand and one nights
Just a thousand and one nights
