"Tonight's Music" as written by Anders Nystrom and Jonas Petter Renkse....
Who could call my name without regretting
Who could see beyond this my darkness
And for once save their own prayers
Who could mirror down just a little
Of their sun

How could this go so very wrong
That I must depend on darkness
Would anyone follow me further down
How could this go so very far
That I need someone to say
What is wrong
Not with the world but me

Who could call my name without regretting
Who could promise to never destroy me
Tonight my head is full of wishes
And everything I drink is full of her

    General Comment"... How could this go so very far
    That I need someone to say
    What is wrong
    Not with the world, but me? ..."

    That lyric is the one that makes this song for me...
    I love it. It gets me on so many levels it's unbelievable.
    I think it's about self-doubt and loathing after you've lost everything.
    I think it's about feeling completely alone and finding it impossible to share anyone elses happiness.

    It's a beautiful song and i love it.

    General CommentIt's a song of absolute depression from a guy who is lamenting a failed relationship and that he feels totally alone. He thinks his friends just use him, and that nobody will share their happiness with him.

    General CommentThis song is so sad and beautiful... For me it's about a finished relationship and the narrator is blaming himself for this... he feels like everything is wrong with him, so alone and depressed...
    His pain and regret are so strong that he "projects" them on everything [and on every relationship with people] and not only on the failed relationship, as if he could ruin everything ["Who could call my name without regretting"]

    General CommentHow can this song have only 1 comment? I mean, this is one of the most powerful things i've heard! I can relato to it... because I keep hurting the person I love... and this song makes me want to smash my head agains the wall in regret... :/ But still... this song is pure emotion... from beggining to end. You don't know what u're missing. Even if u don't relate to it, it will get to you.

    General CommentThis actually hits home to me, I can't believe there is only three comments on this song, its just simply amazing. To me its about many, many failed relationships and being afraid of never finding the one to really understand you.

    That's just how it means to me, and I relate to this song because I've been through those relationships that have failed, and I'm always afraid I'll never find the right person to "get" me, and be there.
