"Hey Tonight" as written by and Will Hoge....
I know it's late
It's the lonely hour
But I've seen your window
And I've knocked on your door
There's no need to hide
I'm a love lost disaster
And sooner or later you're gonna find out
Just what I'm here after

Hey tonight
Say that you still love me
The way that you always did before
Hey tonight
Say the fire is still burning
And in the morning pretend that we don't see the ashes on the floor

There's blood on these streets
I know that I'm losing
My heart's been left open
And I'm falling away
I know that I could
I could change if I have to
But I've been here so long, I think I've learned to like it this way

Into the ocean and with no light
I'm sinking this ship tonight
I'm going down fast
Won't you hold on tight

Don't turn on the lights
Don't look out from inside
Because I know how this ends
And I just can't stand it this way

    General CommentI think this song is so appropriate for the end of a relationship. He's singing about the fact that he knows there's no hope for getting back together, which is fine, but he just wants last night to be delusional and then everyone can wash their hands of it. He just doesn't want to leave it how it is, he wants to change it for the last time and then be okay with it.

    It's a cool song, but I think, going with the idea of it, that's impossible. You split with somebody, one night's not going to change what that means. But I guess it's that we're human that makes us keep trying.

    General CommentFirst off, I think Will Hoge is amazing, and i encourage everyone to listen to him

    I think this song is about two people who were formerly in love...and for whatever reasons seperated

    In the song hes asking her to still love him...

    He mentions that there are ashes remaining from a love that existed from one time, and hes showing up on her doorstep, and asked her to love him, and that in the morning to pretend the ashes from the past...

    He later mentions he can change if she needs him to, and then he brings up the ship, and asks her to hold on to him the ship sinks...not sure exactly what the skip is a metaphor of? perhaps his former life? or there former relationship that once existed? or perhaps everything that was him and her?

    Because I know how this ends
    And I just can't stand it this way

    he's talking about how he cant end up without her, so hes trying to fix things..
