"Just Tonight..." as written by and James Christopher/burch Adkins....
I was scared but once I thought about, I let it go
Everything she said to me I guess I ought to know
We're all tired talk when it comes to shove
Put up, put out or stay at home.

We'll never be the same, never feel this way again
I'd give you anything but you want pain.
A little water please, I taste you all over my teeth
Never again. Just tonight? Okay

All at once the music stopped, the feeling went away
An ugly picture, me and you, but nothing I can change
You know what happens with the lights back on
The less you know the more you want (you want, you want)

We'll never be the same, never feel this way again
I'd give you anything but you want pain.
A little water please, I taste you all over my teeth
Never again. Just tonight? Okay

We'll never be the same, never feel this way again
I'd give you anything but you want pain.
A little water please, I taste you all over my teeth
Never again. Just tonight? Okay

We'll never be the same, never feel this way again
I'd give you anything but you want pain.
A little water please, I taste you all over my teeth
Never again. Just tonight? Okay

    General CommentGreat song.

    "All at once the music stopped, the feeling went away," seems like, as in most songs by these guys, something related to a relationship. I think they mean the "magic" is gone. And he's right about not being the same, when it's gone it's gone. The rest has me stumped.

    General Commenthe's commited the same crime over and over
    he's most likely getting with one of his close friends who wants nothing more than just one night
    they promise not to do it again but they keep going back on their word

    he would do anything for her but all she wants is pain
    so he does what she asks and he can't resist, he gives her just tonight

    just my two cents

    General Commenthmm decoy could be right.
    but since he says "we'll never be the same again" im assuming that a girl cheated him while he was totally devoted to her. hence "the music stopped"

    General Commentyeah i think it's a combination of what you've all said. lol wow i have nothing to contribute..

    but i love the "a little water please, i taste you all over my teeth". it just proves further that the guy was just looking for a fling.

    General Commenti think its about drugs. all about how u try them, saying just tonight, i wont become addicted or a regular user, but then they get hold of you.

    most of the lyrics could be related to the highs and lows of drugs.
    ''All at once the music stopped
    The feeling went away
    An ugly picture, me and you '' - is about the comedown of drugs, the low after the high.

    just a thought

    General CommentI don't really think this song is about drugs when they have another song on the same album called "Drugs or Me"... just imo.

    Yeah, it seems like the guy doesn't want to be with the girl, but she keeps telling him "just tonight" and he keeps caving in.

    General CommentI think it's about a girl who's not really wanting a relationship and he's giving in to whatever she wants because anythings better than nothing.
    she obvoiusly wants just a friends with benifits relationship, and he doesn't agree but he'll do anything for her.

    General CommentI think that he might be cheating on his current girlfriend with the girl in this song. and I think the girl in the song is someone who might either be 1) his ex 2) someone who he shared strong feelings with or 3) someone who is willing to be the "other woman" even though he MIGHT be willing to dump his current GF.

    "We’ll never be the same
    Never feel this way again
    I’d give you everything but you want pain?
    A little water please
    I taste you all over my teeth
    Never again
    Just tonight?
    Okay. "

    Maybe its just me but I definitely got a sexual connotation from "A little water please I taste you all over my teeth".

    General Commentto me it seems like the girls has tried to bring some problems to his attention and he doesn't want to hear them. "Put up put our or stay at home" basically meaning deal with it and be fun or leave me alone.

    I seems to me that they had a real relationship but it's falling apart he is mad at himself and he is mad at her.

    It seems like they probably had break up relationship and that's why it's

    Never again
    Just tonight?
    Okay
