"Alone Tonight" as written by and Jonathan David/siljamaki Grant....
Slipping sideways, silver stars collide
And fade away just like our love that died
And there is nowhere in this universe to hide
From you tonight

I've wrestled with angels all my life
Its always the haloes and the wings that keep you blind
And if I'd fought with all the strength I held inside
I wouldn't be out here
Alone tonight

I wouldn't be standing alone tonight
I wouldn't be standing alone tonight
I wouldn't be standing alone tonight
I wouldn't be standing alone tonight

Alone tonight, just like the western star I'm sinking
The angels curse me blind with straight and crooked thinking
Alone tonight, just like the western star I'm sinking
The angels curse me blind with straight and crooked thinking

Slipping sideways, silver stars collide
And fade away just like our love that died
And there is nowhere in this universe to hide
From you tonight

I've wrestled with angels all my life
Its always the haloes and the wings that keep you blind
And if I'd fought with all the strength I held inside
I wouldn't be out here
Alone tonight

Alone tonight, just like the western star I'm sinking
The angels curse me blind with straight and crooked thinking
Alone tonight, just like the western star I'm sinking
The angels curse me blind with straight and crooked thinking

And if I'd fought with all the strength I held inside
I wouldn't be out here
Alone tonight

    General CommentJust to correct the lyrics:
    It: "And if I fought with all the"

    "Fought", not "fall"

    Fall isn't propper english in this context, and if he fought, then he could have keept his love".

    General Commentok...so what he really meant was "i've wrestled with sexy foxy mamas all my life / it's always their sex appeal and charm that keeps me blind"

    well, yeah...

    General Commentthis song was originally about tony's ex-gf i believe (tony from A&B)

    as good as this song is, it's depressing whenever i hear it.

    shit hit the fan with me and girl, i never seen her for 3-4 months.

    we were both at a afterhours club, i seen her numerous times. i didn't know what to say or do, i just tried to avoid her. i don't think she recognized me anyways.

    later on during that night, a&b just happend to drop this god damn song.

    anyways, the lyrics are straight forward.

    -no where in the universe to hide (the god damn club lol, i kept running into her)
    -And if I fall with all the strength I held inside
    I wouldn't be out here alone tonight (alone in the damn club (as in single, was there with friends))

    anyways, tahts why the songs depressing to me. hah'

    General CommentI love these two lines:
    I've wrestled with angels...all my life
    It's always the halos and the wings that keep you blind


    How does one make an angel his own?

    General CommentI've always thought those two lines make it sound like he quit a relationship in hope of something better, an "angel" "blinded him" if you like. But it didn't work out... and now he wishes he hadn't quit that relationship, and he wishes he wasn't all alone.

    General CommentWell some people wrestle with demons. Perhaps by wrestling with angels he means that it's the good or compassionate part of him that gets him into trouble and that messes up his life, and that that's the part he has trouble controlling.

    General CommentI think by angels he's talking about the beautiful things in life (his ex?) that have tricked him into thinking that they're true and good *because* they're beautiful.
    But these things have left him sad and alone.

    General CommentI'm listening to this song right now and didn't know the lyrics. This is gorgeous, even if it does remind me of being in high school and alone...
    I love the comparison of his ex to an angel. Good stuff.
