"Tonight" as written by and Fiona Sheree Kernaghan....
Tonight, you take a part of my life
Tonight, you take a part of my life

Only lovers are left alive
Only lovers are on my side
Wasted days and wasted nights
'Cause my dreams just slowly die

Stand by me, stand by my side
Change your low and make it mine
With your arms around me, I'm satisfied
Take me to your music, I'm calm inside

Tonight, you take a part of my life
Tonight, you take a part of my life

Take that train, forget the world
Find those girls ar made of gold
I've done a lot of things and none went wrong
Please forgive me, before I'm gone

Tonight, you take a part of my life
Tonight, you take a part of my life

Tonight, you take a part of my life
Tonight, you take a part of my life
Tonight, you take a part of my life
Tonight, you take a part of my life

    Song MeaningThis song intrigued the first time I heard it. Think: I'm a big fan of The Long Blondes, and the first phrase is "Only Lovers Left Alive", a great song performed by the (long blondes) band.

    I did some search and found out that "Tonight you take a part of my life" can be talking about a song, not a girl. See:

    "Only lovers are left alive" > Song by The Long Blondes

    "Wasted days and wasted nights" > Song by Freddy Fender

    "Stand by me" > Originally by Ben E. King, with many versions

    "Chance your love" > can be a reference to Chance On Love from Black Sabbath
    "make it mine" > Song by Jason Mraz

    "With your arms around me" > can be Pear Jam's Throw Your Arms Around Me or Jens Lekman's Your Arms Around Me.

    "I'm satisfied" > Bee Gees!

    "come inside" > Chemical Brothers

    "Forget the world" > many artists, including Depeche Mode's Forget About the World

    "Made of Gold" > Many artists too

    "before I'm gone" > Somking Popes.


    so, that's my meaning: He's talking about a song that really means something for him.
