It's hard to believe
Where we are now
Your hand in mine, babe
Feels right somehow
The night is so still
So don't make a sound
It's almost perfect
So, baby, don't you look down

We had our past
Leave that behind
'Cause none of it lasts
All that we have is tonight

'Cause you're not the only one
Who's ever felt this way
Don't let the world cave in
Just tell me that you'll stay
Now that the pain is done
No need to be afraid
We don't have time to waste
Just tell me that you'll stay

Beautiful
One of a kind
You're something special, babe
And you don't even realize
That you're my heart's desire

All that I wanted and more
I know you're scared
But I promise, babe
I'm not who I was before

'Cause you're not the only one
Who's ever felt this way
Don't let the world cave in
Just tell me that you'll stay
Now that the pain is done
No need to be afraid
We don't have time to waste
Just tell me that you'll stay

'Cause you're not the only one
Who's ever felt this way
Don't let the world cave in
Just tell me that you'll stay
Now that the pain is done
We don't have time to wast
No need to be afraid
No, no, no, no
Tell me that you'll stay
Tell me, tell me you'll stay
Tell me
Tell me
That you'll stay

    General Commentto me it sounds like:

    cause girl i won't/can't last
    if all that we have is tonight

    since he's asking her to stay, i think it would make sense.
    it doesn't help that he changes the words up every night haha.

    General Commenti think maybe its about leaving your past behind you and living in the now even if sometimes your far apart just make the most of the time together. now that the hard times are over time to be together.
    i really dont know but it just guess.
    but i also think that this song and rose garden is about the same person but i really don't know.
    he might be talking in third person you never know.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a boy and a girl who at the moment are with eachother
    "It's hard to believe
    Where we are now
    Your hand in mine, babe
    Feels right somehow"

    but they have a bad history where something happend

    "So, baby, don't you look down
    We had our past
    Leave that behind
    'Cause none of it lasts
    All that we have is tonight"

    and i think it was his fault because of the line

    "But I promise, babe
    I'm not who I was before"

    and so i think she is afraid to take him back or enjoy the moment between the
    two of them because she is afraid of getting hurt again and he is pleading with her
    to stay with him and telling her that he has changed and that he cares about her
    and their wasting time being afraid, so he tells her to stay so she could see that
    they are meant to be.
