​If Only for Tonight

This song is by The Crookes and appears on the album Lucky Ones (2016).

One night to be forgotten
She got a mouth like Johnny Rotten
This city seems so strange but here we go again

So kill the lights
If the night belongs to the young
(Don't wanna see the sun)
Just killing time
Finding ways to come alive
If only for tonight

Poor me, cast as the underdog
I know I'm English but I'm bored of the dialogue
Let's go, let's twist the plot or lose it just the same.

So kill the lights
If the night belongs to the young
(Don't wanna see the sun)
Just killing time
Finding ways to come alive
If only for tonight

But if you're in, I'm all in
Neon lights make my head swim
And in the morning I'll forget what I done
Matchbook souvenirs
From the underground, been lost and found and still
I will disappear
With a royal flush at Lucky Cuss
Just killing time
To try and feel alive
If only for tonight ...

So kill the lights
If the night belongs to the young
(Don't wanna see the sun)
Just killing time
Finding ways to come alive
(If only for tonight)
We spit at stars and
These bars are sticky and cruel
(But who you tryna fool?)
I guess we all need a way
To get through the day
Just killing time
To try and feel alive
If only for tonight ...
