tonight
it could be the end
it could be the end of our lives
our last good-byes
won't you stay?
and see something great
i don't want to waste tonight
this place is ours when the lights go down

let's make this last - make it our own
let's close this place down
you won't be lonely here
you won't be lonely here
you won't be lonely... tonight

tonight
forget your mistakes
leave all the ashes behind
just for tonight
tear away
or just stay outside
choose either way - decide
this place is ours when the lights go down

no one knows if tomorrow's gonna come
let's stay out all night... tonight
tonight... let's close this place down tonight
make it our own
our own
make it our own
our own

    General CommentI love how Stavesacre is a Christian band that doesn't have to hit you over the head with it by filling up their albums with nonstop praise songs. Yes, you can be a Christian artist without having to repeat the Lord's name ad infinitum throughout your songs. This is a perfect example. On the surface, one might think "what does this have to do with Christianity?" But this is in the Spirit of God; for one thing, it's saying that you are with (Christian) friends, enjoy this time with them, build relationships with your fellow-Christians, just like the Lord wants us to build a relationship with Him. But deeper than that, I think another meaning to the song is one that echoes Jesus when He said for us to consider the birds, that they don't have a concern for the next day's food, that the Father will provide for them, and aren't we more important than birds? So the Father will provide for us even more so. In other words, Jesus' message was not to worry about tomorrow, how we will eat, how we will dress ourselves, those are earthly matters, just live for today, and think about God and pick up your cross today, and don't worry about earthly things and mistakes and regrets. Just live.

    By the way, I love this song, it's tremendous, and it's also one of my son's favorites.
