"Let's Go Out Tonight" as written by and Paul Gerard Buchanan....
Where the cars go by,
All the day and night,
Why don't you say,
What's so wrong tonight?
Pray for me,
Praying for the light,
Baby baby,
Let's go out tonight.
Where the lights all shine,
Like I knew they would,
Be mine all mine,
Baby I'll be good.
Pray for me,
Praying for the light,
Baby baby,
Let's go out tonight.
I know a place,
Where everything's alright,
Alright,
Let's go out tonight.
Where the cars go by,
All the day and night,
Why don't you say,
What's so wrong tonight.
I pray for love,
Coming out alright, yeah,
Oh baby baby,
Let's go out tonight, yeah.
Baby baby,
Let's go out tonight,
Let's go out tonight.
Tonight,
Tonight,
Let's go out tonight,
Yeah,
Where the cars go by,
Where the lights won't shine,
...,
Tonight.

    General CommentHeartbreaking.
    Craigs reworking alongside Blue Nile singer/songwriter adds even more to an already perfect song.

    General CommentSupposedly, it's about unrequited love, but I think it's more about someone telling someone who's depressed that they'll take care of them and take them out somewhere they can forget all their troubles.

    General CommentVery beautiful and haunting.

    It seems to be a song detailing some kind of desperation, but not sure of which type. Want, need, loss, hope?

    General CommentThis song ran through my mind over and over as I set next to my mother's deathbed. I thought about a lot of things, about our interaction through the years, the fights, the belly laughs, our gladiatorial relationship but mostly in the wake of that song, I thought about my mother as a very young woman, the part of her I had never witnessed or perhaps just plain can't remember. I heard stories that in her youth she loved to party. As she lay there with her life slowly slipping through my fingers, I had this unexplainable desire to take her out and just show her a good time.
