Save Tonight by Eagle Eye Cherry

Lyrics

Go on and close the curtains
Cause all we need is candle light
You and me and a bottle of wine
Going to hold you tonight
Well we know I’m going away
And how I wish, I wish it weren’t so
So take this wine and drink with me
Let’s delay our misery

Save tonight
And fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow
Tomorrow I’ll be gone
x2

There’s a log on the fire
And it burns like me for you
Tomorrow comes with one desire
To take me away it’s true
It ain’t easy to say goodbye
Darling please don’t start to cry
Cause girl you know I’ve got to go, oh
Lord I wish it wasn’t so

Save tonight
And fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow
Tomorrow I’ll be gone
x2

Tomorrow comes to take me away
I wish that I, that I could stay
Girl you know I’ve got to go, oh
Lord I wish it wasn’t so

Save tonight
And fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow
Tomorrow I’ll be gone
x3

Save tonight
And fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow
Tomorrow I’ll be gone x5

Save tonight x4

This is a great song that takes one back to past relationships where two lovers are sadly separated & they stay up all night hoping that  sunrise will never come.It really is all about living life and making the most of every moment we have.
