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 CommentI'm really sad to see how you Americans try to fit in a grotesque cliché, seeing religion and war in love song from Sweden, a country that hates the Church and the army. I've read all the comments and almost every one of them is about Jesus or a soldier, it seems you can't separate the notion of love (which is supposed to be the supreme form of beauty) from the religion and your nation and it freaks me out.

    It tells a lot more about you than the song. It makes me think to this guy in the movie “the number 23” that sees this number everywhere.

    In point of view, it's just a tragic separation between two lovers (by the way, it could be two men or two women), whatever the cause.
