TONIGHT

Tonight

It seems we can talk for hours
And never find a solution
It’s so late, but I’m wide awake
Within my mind a revolution
In the middle with no way out
Only time tells the story
I am part of the cast, but can I last
Will I live to share the glory?

Tonight, the world ceases to turn
Tonight, I see how much I must learn
Tonight, I’m facing reality
Tonight, there’s nothing to set me free

It’s times like these I must survive
Make it through the night
Watch for the sun, it’s sure to come
To turn things around and make them right
The birds have started singing
A sign morning is on the way
I still need to dream
Or will I wake with a scream on the new day

Tonight, the world ceases to turn
Tonight, I see how much I must learn
Tonight, I’m facing reality
Tonight, there’s nothing to set me free

I’ve seen the top of the world
And it’s higher up than I’ve ever been
But I’ve been through the longest, darkest nights
Caught in a web of sin
Now I’m somewhere in between
I reach for the top but I’m pulled back down
I don’t believe some of the things I’ve seen
I don’t know if tomorrow will ever come around

For right now, I’m frightened
Someone show me how 
To fight off the pain
That runs through my brain tonight…
