"Tonight" is a song that is featured in the 2021 live-action feature film, West Side Story. As a musical interpretation of the balcony scene from William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, the song is a duet featuring Tony (Ansel Elgort) and María (Rachel Zegler) as they confirm their love for each other.

Lyrics

María:
Only you, you're the only thing I'll see forever
In my eyes, in my words, and in everything I do
Nothing else but you
Ever!

Tony:
And there's nothing for me but María
Every sight that I see is María

María:
Tony, Tony…

Tony:
Always you, every thought I'll ever know
Everywhere I go, you'll be

María:
All the world is only

Both:
You and me!

María:
Tonight, tonight
It all began tonight
I saw you and the world went away

Tonight, tonight
There's only you tonight
What you are, what you do, what you say

Tony:
Today, all day I had the feeling
A miracle would happen
I know now I was right

For here you are
And what was just a world is a star
Tonight!

María:
Tonight, tonight
The world is full of light

Tony:
With suns and moons all over the place

Both:
Tonight, tonight
The world is wild and bright
Going mad, shooting sparks into space

Tony:
Today the world was just an address
A place for me to live in
No better than all right

María:
But here you are
And what was just a world

Both:
Is a star
Tonight!

María:
Only you, you're the only thing I'll see forever
In my eyes, in my words, and in everything I do
Nothing else but you
Ever...
