"Tonight" as written by and I. Pop D. Bowie....
The streets are on fire in the town that you were born
And all these busy nights took shape in an awkward form
How do you lay with him near?
She says when it comes I just disappear
And I feel so gross
In the middle
Where my heart goes
I'll get it right
What I'm feeling and believing
If I get home tonight

Sun is coming up and I think of where you've been
You'd feel a little impatient if you were living in my skin
The words just fade in my ear
I could take it all but I'm not living when you're not here
And I feel so cold
In the middle
Where my heart goes
I'll get it right
What I'm feeling and believing
If I get home tonight

The look on your face
You can't take away
I'll wait for it everyday
There's a picture I have of you in my mind
You look so perfect and the sun just burns in your eyes
As the hours fade you remain
Underneath the sweat and skin that you betray
And I feel so gross
In the middle
Where my heart goes
I'll get it right
What I'm feeling and believing
If I get home tonight

    General Commentjust a great song....probably the my second favorite song from New London Fire...We Dont Bleed being my first...not sure of the full meaning of the song but in general its about someone finding that right one but that person i guess isnt around

    Sun is coming up and I think of where you've been
    you'd feel a little impatient if you were living in my skin.
    The words just fade in my ear.
    I could take it all but I'm not living when you're not here.

    I love this verse...anyone in that position can connnect..you know the person you care about just isn't there for what ever reason maybe you pushed them away maybe they just are far from you...you aren't complete with out them but the tone of the song leads me to believe that...maybe she jus wont acknowledge him, that he's being a dreamer...sometimes the other person just doesnt know how much the other cares for them...all the other words of consolation don't do, they just fade...ultimately he feels he would be a better person with her around but shes not...hes incomplete

    And I feel so cold
    in the middle
    where my heart goes.
    I'll get it right
    what I'm feeling and believing
    if I get home tonight.

    The emptiness of the lose just gets to him, the waiting being on the fence not know where he stands its killing him he doesnt know what to think or believe he just need to get back to a place that hes comfortable..."home" (back to normal)

    The look on your face
    you can't take away
    I'll wait for it everyday.
    There's a picture I have of you in my mind
    you look so perfect and the sun just burns in your eyes.
    As the hours fade you remain
    underneath the sweat and skin that you betray.

    What a horrible thing memory can be...all he can see it her greatness...to him she's worth it, worth waiting...or trying to at least....the last line drives this home...time may pass other memories fade but she was so strong shes the only thing he can manage to think about....

    I did my best on that one...dont know if its right
