"Tonight" as written by and Debelah L/morgan Morgan....
You don't know about me
And you don't care what affair still haunts me
And you don't know what it is about me
And I don't care, I don't care if you love me

Tonight we'll be whoever we like
Tonight we'll leave our troubles behind
Tonight in each other we'll hide
Tonight will be alright...

And I don't know about you
And I don't care about the girl behind you
And I don't know what it is about you
It makes me want to run and jump inside you

Tonight in each other we'll hide
Tonight we'll leave our troubles behind
Tonight we'll be whoever we like
Tonight, tonight will be alright...

You don't understand why my heart feels bad
From the love you hold out in your hand
And you offer it without command
I just don't know why I can't get you inside,
Why I need you tonight...

Cause you don't know about me,
And you don't care how this affair will break me.
And why should I care about you, if you don't care,
You don't care that I love you?

    General CommentI think she loves him, but he doesn't love or cre about her
    Then she realizes that if he doesn't love her, why should she love him
    I don't know...

    General CommentIts seems to me like she's talking about having an affair, and ends up falling for the guy.

    "And I don't care about the girl behind you." - Her not thinking about the 'girl behind him' makes me think of his wife.

    Her heart feels bad because she can't have anymore than what he's giving. He will never truely be hers.

    "And you don't care how this affair will break me." - She loves him, but knows that sooner or later the thing between the two will be over, and that its going to devastate her.

    General Commenti agree, i think it's about an affair. maybe not an actual physical affair, but definetly someone who is already with someone, but who's heart is with someone else, who doesn't care (and you don't care, you don't care if i love you.)

    General Commenti think this is about a couple who are already in a relationship, and he cheats on her (you don't care what affair still haunts me) but she still finds herself loving him, regardless of the shit he puts her through.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure its Kate Walsh trying to explain how in the beginning of the affair, she didn't care if he loved her. But as the song progresses, as well as the affair, it turns to how she doesn't care about the girl he's with and how she really does love him and wants to be with him, but he [like she was in the beginning] still doesn't care. It's such a creative song that shows the differences people have and how a person, man or woman, can enter an affair thinking it won't affect their heart, but in the end their heart gets way too involved, unlike their partner.

    Perfect song, just like life.

    General Commenti always thought it was about a one night stand...about people who had their own troubles in love but decide to have one night of mindless sex to escape the rubbish they're going through.

    General CommentAnd why should I care about you, WHEN you don't care,
    You don't care IF i love you.

    Definitely with regards to a one night stand. Both have troubles and seek refuge in each other.
