"Tonight" as written by and Livingstone Wordley/mckenzie Brown....
Tonight, oh
This is the night you'll see the light
Tonight, oh
This is the night you'll see the light

My sixteenth birthday I was so shy
Not yet a man but ready to try
Music playing people saying
I looked around she caught my eye
Walked into the room I couldn't hardly see
There she was moving closer to me
She told me her name before I could speak
Took my hand and then she said these words to me

Tonight, oh
This is the night you'll see the light
That's what she said me
Tonight, oh
This is the night you'll see the light

Hey beautiful girl so lovely tonight
Show me the way show me the light
Music playing people swaying
Next thing I knew we started to groove
Dancing and dancing moving so free
A feeling of love had come over me
I held her close and knew it was right
What a perfect surprise I had finally seen the light

(repeat)

Tonight, you will finally see the light baby
Tonight, you will finally see the light baby
Tonight, you will finally see the light
You will see, ooh you will see the light
Tonight you will finally see the light
Oh yeah

Oh come on I want to dance with you
Oh come on I want to dance
Oh come on I want to dance with you
Oh come on I want to dance with you

    General Commentit's about a guy who loses his virginity on his birthday, but it doesn't spell it out, so it could be open to other interpretations, e.g. the religious right could interpret the song as the guy found Jesus on his birthday ("I had finally seen the light").
