It's time to go, so put all your clothes on
I've got the keys, baby you're so gone
It's time to go, so put on all your clothes
We're running late, and we both know
'Cause you've got your plans, and you know that I have mine
I fade away, got so little time

So tonight, tonight, let's fade away, let's fade away
Get it all to just one day
Tonight, tonight, oh baby we'll fade away
This is our time, oh yeah
So baby it's time to

Get on the dance floor, pretend you know how
To make 'em all scream, do what they're talking about
Just feel the music, fuck what they're saying
This is the moment, that we've been waiting on

'Cause you've got your plans, and you know that I have mine
I fade away, got so little time
So tonight, tonight, let's fade away, let's fade away
Get it all for just one day
Tonight, tonight, oh baby we'll fade away
This is our time, oh yeah
So baby it's time to go

They said it's time to go
Half dressed, she's walking out the door
And I just thought that I would try to let you know
We'll be a mess around 3 or 4
We all know that I'm fine to go

So tonight, tonight, let's fade away, let's fade away
Get it all for just one day
Tonight, tonight, oh baby we'll fade away
This is our time, oh yeah
So baby it's time to go

So tonight, tonight, let's fade away, let's fade away
Get it all for just one day
Tonight, tonight, oh baby we'll fade away
This is our time, oh yeah
So baby it's time to go

Oh it's time to go

    To make 'em all scream, YOU'RE what they're talking about
    Just feel the music, fuck what they're saying

    General CommentThis says:
    "So tonight, tonight, let's fade away, let's fade away
    Get it all to just one day..."

    i thought it was:
    "So tonight, tonight, let's fade away, let's fade away
    Forget it all for just one day..."

    am i wrong??

    General CommentI agree, very sexy song!

    I also believe it is "forget it all for just one day"
    and " you're what they're talkin about"

    I listen to this song several times a day. One of my faves on the album... actually has the most plays on my iTunes now. lol

    General Commentthis song has got to be about getting high.
    and the only reason i came up with that is because...

    1. john said that a lot of their songs aren't really what they appear to be.
    2. fade = faded: meaning, high or drunk(sometimes)

    it's not hard to interpret. the chorus is a perfect example of what i'm trying to get across. you don't have to agree with me, it's just the way i see it. to me, it makes more sense when i look at the lyrics in that aspect. it's not about love, this is about being a teenager and his friends getting fucked up. and for some odd reason, this makes me love this song so much more. even if i'm wrong about the meaning, i'm interpreting it that way because it just makes better sense in my world.

    General CommentNo offense, ayesaych, but I think you're way off.

    Personally, I think it's about tour.
    When Stay Up, Get Down came out, they were just getting started.
    They had to be majorly excited for tour and...well, this could have been the result.
    Maybe partially about saying goodbyes and stuff before leaving, but being really excited anyway.
    Just a guess.
