Save Tonight

Lyrics

playGo on and close the curtains
play'Cause all we need is candlelight
playYou and me, and a bottle of wine
playTo hold you tonight (oh)

playWell we know I'm going away
playAnd how I wish - I wish it weren't so
playSo take this wine and drink with me
playAnd let's delay our misery

playSave tonight and fight the break of dawn
playCome tomorrow - tomorrow I'll be gone
playSave tonight and fight the break of dawn
playCome tomorrow - tomorrow I'll be gone

playThere's a log on the fire
playAnd it burns like me for you
playTomorrow comes with one desire
playTo take me away (ohh it's true)

playIt ain't easy to say good-bye
playDarlin' please, don't start to cry
play'Cause girl you know I've got to go (oh)
playAnd Lord I wish it wasn't so

playSave tonight and fight the break of dawn
playCome tomorrow - tomorrow I'll be gone
playSave tonight and fight the break of dawn
playCome tomorrow - tomorrow I'll be gone

playTomorrow comes to take me away
playI wish that I, that I could stay
playBut girl you know I've got to go (oh)
playAnd Lord I wish wasn't so

playSave tonight and fight the break of dawn
playCome tomorrow - tomorrow I'll be gone
playSave tonight and fight the break of dawn
playCome tomorrow - tomorrow I'll be gone
playSave tonight and fight the break of dawn
playCome tomorrow - tomorrow I'll be gone
playSave tonight and fight the break of dawn
playCome tomorrow - tomorrow I'll be gone

playTomorrow I'll be gone
playTomorrow I'll be gone

The song is about a couple who is trying to make the most of their last night together. Apparently the guy is going away for a while and the thought of separation is agonizing for both of them. So he's singing about how important their last night is together and that he's almost hoping that tomorrow never comes because he doesn't want to be separated from his lover.
