Go on and close the curtains
'Cause all we need is candlelight
You and me, and a bottle of wine
To hold you tonight (oh)

Well we know I'm going away
And how I wish, I wish it weren't so
So take this wine and drink with me
And let's delay our misery

Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow, tomorrow I'll be gone

Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow, tomorrow I'll be gone

There's a log on the fire
And it burns like me for you
Tomorrow comes with one desire
To take me away (oh it's true)

It ain't easy to say goodbye
Darlin' please, don't start to cry
'Cause girl you know I've got to go (oh)
And Lord I wish it wasn't so

Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow, tomorrow I'll be gone

Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow, tomorrow I'll be gone

Tomorrow comes to take me away
I wish that I, that I could stay
But girl you know I've got to go (oh)
And Lord I wish wasn't so

Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow, tomorrow I'll be gone

Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow, tomorrow I'll be gone

Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow, tomorrow I'll be gone

Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow, tomorrow I'll be gone

Tomorrow I'll be gone
Tomorrow I'll be gone
Tomorrow I'll be gone
Tomorrow I'll be gone

Save tonight
Save tonight
Save tonight
Save tonight

Oh, that's right

Save tonight
Save tonight

    General CommentYeah, don't think this has anything to do with Christ, but hey interpret it how you want.
    I remember hearing that this song was inspired by Leaving on a Jet Plane, a song similar in theme and also really memorable.
