1, 2, 3, 4

It's not a matter of finding out exactly how we feel
It's a matter of disasters that have followed us both here
To the brink of discernment where we dare ourselves to jump
Keeping steady hands on both our guns defending what we’ve lost

You're not her, I'm not him
Let's hold it together and keep it in
Just for tonight
You're not her, I'm not him
Let's hold it together and keep it in
Just for tonight

Running out of distractions
Running out of things to say
Diverting eyes to almost anything
To keep my hands away
If I'm with you much longer
There's no telling what we’ll do
Face to face with this temptation
Stay and face the fall with you

You're not her, I'm not him
Let's hold it together and keep it in
Just for tonight
You're not her, I'm not him
Let's hold it together and keep it in
Just for tonight

A different case, another place
And we would not waste this much time
But time is what we must afford
Just pull it back, keep it intact
You keep what's yours, I'll keep what's mine
Or we’ll repeat what came before

You're not her, I'm not him
Let's hold it together and keep it in
Just for tonight
You're not her, I'm not him
Let's hold it together and keep it in
Just for tonight

I'm not her, you're not him
Let's hold it together and keep it in
Just for tonight
I'm not her, you're not him
Let's hold it together and keep it in
Just for tonight

Just for tonight

    General CommentIt's about two people who both got out of terrible relationships. "It's not a matter of finding out exactly how we feel. It's a matter of disasters that have followed us both here."

    They want to make it work, despite comparing each other to the old lovers. "You're not her, I'm not him. Let's hold it together and keep it in just for tonight."
