"Tonight" as written by Steve Clark, Philip Collen, Joseph Elliott, Robert John Lange and Richard Savage....
I don't want to play the waiting game
And drift away leavin' an illusion
I don't want to hide, It's foolish pride
To close my eyes a touch away from wantin' you

Don't try to look away when you're face to face
I see your eyes that animal emotion
You don't have to set your tender trap
It's in those eyes, it's gonna happen anyway

(BRIDGE:)
Movin' to the rhythm of your heartbeat
I'm wantin', willin', touchin' you, we'll be
Movin' to the rhythm of your heartbeat
Ooh babe, when you get that rhythm
Gonna move into your room

(CHORUS:)
Tonight - Gimme love with no disguise
Tonight - I see the fire in your eyes
Tonight - So right this night could be dynamite
Wait 'n' see, if it pleases you it pleases me

There's nothing I can say, it's no mystery
It's in your eyes, those eyes are where I wanted them
So give me heart 'n' soul, I lose control
Can't stop my eyes from fallin' into fantasy

(repeat BRIDGE & CHORUS)

Tonight - Gimme love with no disguise
Tonight - I see the fire in your eyes
Tonight - I want to win the greatest prize
Tonight - So right this night could be dynamite
Wait 'n' see, if it pleases you it pleases me

    General CommentThis is one of my favourite songs. It embodies everything I've ever thought about a night of passion with Joe Elliott! Seriously though, You have to love that chorus, the whole song is absolutely beautiful.

    General CommentOne of the best ballads off of "Adrenalize", an album full of great ballads, and one of my favorite Def Leppard songs. Love that chorus.
