​Tonight

This song is by Last Train Home and appears on the album Last Train Home (1998).

The clouds across the sunset look like bloodshot eyes tonight
I want to turn the porch light out and huddle with the shooting stars
I want to wipe out all the pictures in my head tonight
I wish I could erase them by exposing them to light

I haven't had a drink since just a week ago tonight
I see your lips with lipstick on, you broke just like a doll
I'll clear away the bottles from the screened in porch tonight
I see a bunch of wet lawn chairs and grass whose owner doesn't care

The moon is out tonight, tonight
The stars are out tonight, tonight
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
My love's gone south tonight

I see a woman walking slow out on the street tonight
Staring with those eyes you'd get before you'd slip away and cry
Rows of houses crying out to be burned down tonight
They sway like lovers in the air, tonight and every other night

The moon is out tonight, tonight
The stars are out tonight, tonight
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
My love's gone south tonight
