Ask me I say I know
Oh it's sarcastic I take the show
Guess tonight I'm on my own

Cold rush in my veins
Oh I can't believe myself
Guess tonight I'm all alone

Now you're the only thing that keeps me moving here

So tonight, I'll take the Red Eye
I won't say goodnight, I won't tonight.

You say, please please don't go away
I'd beg if you'd ever stay
All those nights we've left alone

You wonder what I'll say
Oh, it's not worth it to lose someone
But tonight I'm on my own

Now you're the only thing that keeps me hanging on

So tonight, I'll take the Red Eye
I won't say goodnight, I won't tonight.
And tonight, I'll take the Red Eye
I won't say goodnight, I won't tonight.

Won't you stay with me a while?
I could never.
Won't you stay with me a while?
I could never.

So tonight, I'll take the Red Eye
I won't say goodnight, I won't tonight.

Cold rush to my veins,
Oh I can't believe myself
Wonder what I'll say
Oh it's not worth it to lose someone

    General Commentin my mind im thinking this song is about trying a drug.. not just one certain drug but one with a name change to some kind of metaphor. wikipedia says that red eye is a drug on cowboy bebop and ace seems nerdy enough to take that and change it into an awesome song.. any thoughts? it seems kinda logical but it could also mean a late flight in a way too
