Sometimes you get what you want
Sometimes you get what you need
Sometimes you find everything in me

There's times it doesn't make sense
And I can barely believe
That you still find anything in me

I'm comin' apart, I'm comin' to you
This game has pushed us so far
Can you pull me through?

Maybe tonight, maybe tonight
Maybe tonight, we'll find a place, between you and me

The cost is selling you short
The life that gets in the way
I finally feel strong enough to pray

The words that I couldn't keep
But always meant to say
How can we find the time to fill this space?

I'm comin' apart, I'm comin' to you
This game has pushed us so far
Can you pull me through?

Maybe tonight, maybe tonight
Maybe tonight, we'll find our way
Maybe tonight, we'll find a place, between you and me

We're so close, just make it stay
I have lived to feel this way
It's been down but we're not out
This is all I need right now

Sometimes you get what you want
Sometimes you get what you need
Sometimes you find everything in me

Maybe tonight, maybe tonight
Maybe tonight, we'll find our way
Maybe tonight, we'll find a place, between you and me

    younglove r, do u actually have the cd? because although the song trouble has the words "maybe tonight" in it, it is a different song. this is the correct song for these lyrics.

    Maybe Tonight is such a beautiful song... live and acoustic it sounds even more amazing than the CD version. And don't get mad at younglove_r because apparently on some of the CD's that were released "Trouble" and "Maybe Tonight"'s places were swapped... so people think Trouble is Maybe Tonight now and vice versa...

    This song is about two people that realize they have a chance together. Although they have had problems in the past, "Maybe Tonight" something will happen. Somehow the two people didn't feel a connection for some time, but eventually realize they are falling for each other. It takes a lot out of each of them, "This game has pushed you so far, can you pull me through?" But it seems they are willing. Their lives are diferent, but somehow they find each other, "Sometimes you get what you want, sometimes you get what you need, sometimes you find everything in me." And regardless of their diferences, they want, even need each other.

Zombie
Cranberries, The
"Zombie" is about the ethno-political conflict in Ireland. This is obvious if you know anything of the singer (Dolores O'Riordan)'s Irish heritage and understood the "1916" Easter Rising reference. "Another head hangs lowly Child is slowly taken And the violence caused such silence Who are we mistaken - Another mother's breaking Heart is taking over" Laments the Warrington bomb attacks in which two children were fatally injured on March 23rd, 1993. Twelve year old Tim Parry was taken off life support with permission from his mother after five days in the hospital, virtually braindead. "But you see it's not me It's not my family" References how people who are not directly involved with the violence feel about it. They are "zombies" without sympathy who refuse to take action while others suffer.

Sunglasses at Night
Corey Hart
In the 1980s, sunglasses were a common fashion for people who wanted to adopt a "tough guy" persona (note all the cop shows from that era -- Simon & Simon, Miami Vice, etc. -- where the lead characters wore shades). So I think this song is about a guy who wears shades as a way of hiding his insecurity after learning that his girlfriend is cheating on him. He's trying to pretend that he's a "tough guy" to hide the fact that his girlfriend's affair is disturbing him.
