"Night after Night" as written by and Johan Bengtsson Jesper Anderberg....
It all seemed perfect
But there are moments when I feel nothing at all
Same as always
Now it's repeating itself all over again

Night after night you say you move on
Tomorrow, tomorrow
Now, what's holding you back?
I don't know, I don't know

Night after night you say you move on
Tomorrow, tomorrow
Now, what's holding you back?
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know

Don't feel sorry
'Cause there's no reason for us to fight any more
Tears are coming, and years are going
I hope we'll learn something

Night after night you say you move on
Tomorrow, tomorrow
Now, what's holding you back?
I don't know, I don't know

Night after night you say you move on
Tomorrow, tomorrow
Now, what's holding you back?
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know

Night after night you say you move on
Tomorrow, tomorrow
Now, what's holding you back?
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know

Night after night you say you move on
Tomorrow, tomorrow
Now, what's holding you back?
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know

    General CommentLike some people said, I think its actually the singer speaking to herself, but I think it's she is trying to convince herself from a relationship that went bad.

    The first stanza of the song is a prelude to her breaking up, and the rest is the way she feels after breaking up, the longing to be back again despite her knowing that it is for the best; if you have ever felt this way about someone, I have, it's a feeling I am too familiar with. I like listening to this song when accompanied by Queen of Apology, another song about regret in my mind.

    Someone said they liked to slow version better cause it was sadder; yea it is. But I like the fast version because I think it reflects the mask she is trying to put over her feeling, she is trying to convince herself everything will change tomorrow by being upbeat, but in the end she is still gunna feel the same tomorrow and she doesnt know why she cant move on.

    General Commentthe partner shes with, she doesnt have strong enough feelings for them and she tells her self night after night whats holding me back she is wasting years and tears with this person but for some reason she cant let them go. thats my interpretation and maybe i see it that way because im in the same situation.

    General CommentI never really had much liking for this song, but after seeing it performed live, and seeing the emotion that Maja has in the song, it's become a new favorite. She really seems to be tied to this song, and I think it goes like the others said, and it's about when someone is in a relationship, yet they can't get themselves to move on.

    My InterpretationMaya is clearly speaking of heartbreak in this song. More than likely her loving another person and them constantly leaving her only to come back and mess with her emotions and treat her like crap. Never loving her as much as she loves them and ultimatly making her numb inside. Ive seen The Sounds perform numerous times and everytime she sings Night After Night she asks someone in the crowd for a cigarette and begins to tear up. Im assuming she is speaking of women because Maya is infact a lesbian.

    General CommentI think this is about her realizing that a relationship that she is in has lost its meaning. There's "no reason to fight anymore" because there's nothing left worth fighting over. She hopes that the she actually "learned something" from it, but isn't sure, and just knows that the time has gone by.
