"Underneath the Night Sky" as written by Dan Keyes and Rory Phillips....
Loud screams, fighting words
Awful things were said,
You might not be able to take back
She puts her hands on his face
And tells him
Get out, get out
Just leave, she pleads
He can't believe what he's done
As he's walking down the street
The night keeps warning him to turn around

underneath the night sky
Take flight
Underneath the night sky
She cries
Underneath the night sky
One last time
You know where I'm going
Oh underneath the night sky
Remembering the reasons why
Underneath the night sky
I'll fall for you tonight again

on his way to familiar arms
Someone who will know him
The girl who understands
Stops dead in his tracks to see
It's too much too give up
Not too late for apologies
Turns down the wrong street
Give me all your money
Should know better than to be here alone
Tries to run, doesn't feel like a fight
She could hear the shots ring out from home

underneath the night sky
Take flight
Underneath the night sky
She cries
Underneath the night sky
One last time
You know where I'm going
Oh underneath the night sky
Remembering the reasons why
Underneath the night sky
I'll fall for you tonight again

(don't forget to hold her tight
Everything can change so fast)

underneath the night sky
Take flight
Underneath the night sky
She cries
Underneath the night sky
One last time
You know where I'm going
Oh underneath the night sky
Remembering the reasons why
Underneath the night sky
I'll fall for you tonight again

don't forget to hold her tight
Everything can change so fast
No no no
Don't forget to hold her tight
Everything can change so fast

    General CommentSuch a sad song.
    The only thing I think you guys are wrong about is...
    he didn't go for comfort from somebody else, he was going to go back to apologize.

    General CommentOk I thought this song was self explanatory but I guess not. I think it means these two got into a fight because he cheated on his girlfriend (he can't believe what he's done)...she tells him to get out and he decides to go to the other girl's...but then he stops in his tracks and realizes what he has with his girlfriend is too much to
    lose and he it's not to late to go back and fix things...after this realization is when the mugger comes and ulimately shoots him. The girlfriend can hear the shots and goes to him, hence underneath the night sky she cries.

    General Commentthis song makes me so sad. it seems that 'he' had a bad fight with his girlfriend & he goes to get comfort from somebody else. but he turns down the wrong street and a shot is heard. so he might of died and if he did, it could've been prevented by him getting in a fight with his girlfriend. =/
