Have I taken you for granted?
But I know what matters what matters most to you
In slow motion as you walk on by
Pictures of you forever in my mind

Hold me tonight (tonight, tonight)
Hole me tonight (tonight, tonight)
Tomorrow keeps bringing you down and I'm still right here
Follow me to then end of the sea

Looking out for new ideas
I thought that sometimes dreams come true
When to everyone who's always been there
I'm giving this to you

Hold me tonight (tonight, tonight)
Hole me tonight (tonight, tonight)
Tomorrow keeps bringing you down and I'm still right here
Follow me to then end of the sea

Time is the secret so know as they fall onto you
My hands reach out and into nothing (but your big turning eyes?)
I saw her tonight standing outside - I said too much
One of you screamed my name and I care without anything else
You said - I heard what you said - I loved what you said when you said it to me
You sing - singing that song - when the back seat's singing my mind

Hold me tonight (tonight, tonight)
Hole me tonight (tonight, tonight)
Hold me tonight (tonight, tonight)
Hole me tonight, tonight, tonight!

    General Commenti love this song. but how come other sites say it's by tbs? the guy sounds sort of like antonio from the old tbs/prizefighter. and i only became familiar with this song recently....so i dont really know this band either...

    General CommentThis song is one of my favorite by The Anniversary...it's definitely a great song when you're in love
    (And maybe TBS covered it? I'm not sure but it's definitely by The Anniversary, I saw them play it before TBS was even a band.)

    General CommentFIrstly - what a terrific song. Amazing rythm, and well applied effects. To me, that synthesizer sound always sounds like a fun fair, sort of reminds me of kissing on a ferris wheel.

    The song is about an imperfect love, which then gets idealised and 'recognised' as perfect, as it were. The duet-style vocals really lend the song a tenderness and a sincerity, and it amazes me how totally unconventional this song is yet whilst being so utterly romantic. It really is one of the most romantic songs of all time.

    Reminds me somewhat of 'Nothing Better' by the Postal Service, and 'I See You, You See Me' by the Magic Numbers.

    Secondly, some problems with these lyrics:

    - 'Follow me to then end of the sea' - it's to 'the' end of the sea. Just makes more sense, and sounds right.
    - 'My hands reach out and into nothing but your big turning eyes?' - it's 'into nothing but your glittering eyes'.
