"Tonite It Shows" as written by Jonathan Donahue, Sean Mackowiak, Adam Snyder and David Fridman....
Into a dream, I took a turn, and promised to return
The way we were, the way we met, the way I lit your cigarette
The way it trailed, into a stream, and lay down between

You had to choose, a side to lose, and divide yourself in two
The way you were, long before, you were a walkin' civil war
But you forget, where the road goes, and tonight it shows

Into your soul, I tried to climb, but found the hole to high
For me to leave, the way I'd learned, and found I couldn't turn
The way the trees, and fallin' rain, remind me in a way

The way you were, the day we met, the way I lit your cigarette
The way it changed, into a strange, Cole Porter phrase
But you forget, how the song goes, and tonite it shows

    General Commenti personally love this so...it flows, and the way things are described makes it different from other songs. Now not the best lyrics but its a great song.

    General CommentInto yr soul, i tried t' climb, but found the hole t' high

    those are my favourite lyrics. i think this song is about when u meet someone and u think they're right for you, but as time goes on u find its not gona work coz u dont understand each other. specifically i dont think the guy understands the girl, who is having her own problems - she's a walking civil war!
