"After Tonight" as written by Justin Nozuka and Winston Neale,....
There's something in your eyes
Is everything alright?
You look up to the sky
You long for something more, Darlin'
Give me your right hand
I think I understand, follow me
And you will never have to wish again

I know that after tonight
You don't have to look up
At the stars no no no no
And I know by the end of tonight
You don't have to look up at the stars
And I know if the love is alright
You don't have to look up
At the stars no no no no
I know by the end of tonight
You don't have to look up at the stars
No no no no no no no no no

Tell me how you feel
And if I'm getting near
I'll tell you where to steer
You tell me where to steer, D-D-D-Darlin'
Way above the clouds
And high above the stars
Through the unknown black holes
No one knows where we are
But we'll return to earth
And do it all over again

Cause I know that after tonight
You don't have to look up
At the stars no no no no
And I know by the end of tonight
You don't have to look up at the stars
And I know if the love is alright
You don't have to look up
At the stars no no no no
I know by the end of tonight
You don't have to look up at the stars

Now come away with me
Come fly away with me
Just for one night
No one will ever know
No no no, Darlin'
I will leave you satisfied
Forever past time
You don't have to hide
Your free to fly

I know that after tonight
You don't have to look up
At the stars no no no no
And I know by the end of tonight
You don't have to look up at the stars
And I know if the love is alright
You don't have to look up
At the stars no no no no
I know by the end of tonight
You don't have to look up at the stars
Said I know that after tonight
You don't have to look up
At the stars no no no no
And I know by the end of tonight
You don't have to look up at the stars
And I know if the love is alright
You don't have to look up
At the stars no no no no
I know by the end of tonight
You'll be looking down upon them
From heaven yeah yeah
Oh no no, oh na na na na na na
Yeah yeah ooh na na na-oh

    My InterpretationI belive that the girl in this song has enough nights where she has been with men she doesnt love, men who likewise might not care about her.. when they have sex she just looks at the ceiling and thinks of the stars, which could also be inturpeted as her dreams.. I think its a bettter plot line if its not right by song meaning that Justin is a friend or somone in her life that she might not have expected this from, and since he has always loved her he gives her everything that he has always wanted to give. just a large amount of raw love.. then the lyrics with a back stor make it all very easy.

    only other sub plot is ``No one knows where we are.``....``Just for one night, no one will ever know.``

    could mean that She is still with a bad boy friend.. or Justin is that respectful that he wount go braging or telling people.. its a very intamate and trusting sorta commitiment he is making to her.

    I would sum the song up in my own way. it might be wrong but i like it.. its sorta a song dedicated to the guy`s who are the best friend to the girl they love, and watch them get hurt.. to those guys the world would be much better if more people cared, not pushovers, but care to much to hurt somone.

    WOW thanks for reading all that. peace.

    General CommentI think this song is about wooing a woman with sex. Romantically, of course. I love this song.

    General Commenti think that looking at the stars is supposed to be like, symbolic for doubt

    so she wont have to doubt anymore
    y'know?

    General Commentwow, this song is breathtaking. i think the stars symbolize a wish and desire. this boy is telling her that after tonight she won't have to look up at the stars anymore because he will fulfill all her wishes and desires. its so beautifully crafted because its obviously about having sex for the first time and he just wants her to feel safe. amazing, and i think every young woman fantasizes about this. I love how he sings the line 'you're free to fly' *sigh*

    General CommentOkay so I think this means that: he's going out with some chick and something in their relationship is changing, but he knows how to fix it and hes willing to do so, and 'after tonight' she wont have to worry anymore because everythings gonna be alright.

    Idk, I guess thats just how I interpreted it cuz it reminded me of a certain situation, and when I heard it, it just all clicked together.

    Ps. He looks better with short hair(: and his voice is fucking awesome x56
