Just Tonight Lyrics

Here we are
And I can't think from all the pills, hey
Start the car and take me home

Here we are
And your too drunk to hear a word I say
Start the car and take me home

Just tonight I will stay and well throw it all away
When the light hits your eyes
Its telling me I'm right
And if I, I am through
Then its all because of you
Just tonight

Here I am
And I can't seem to see straight
But I'm too numb to feel right now

And here I am
Watching the clock that's ticking away my time
I'm too numb to feel right now

Just tonight I will stay and well throw it all away
When the light hits your eyes
Its telling me I'm right
And if I, I am through
Then its all because of you
Just tonight

Do you understand who I am do you wanna know
Can you really see through me
Now I have got to go

Just tonight
I won't leave
And ill lie and you'll believe
Just tonight
I will see that its all because of me

Just tonight I will stay and well throw it all away
When the light hits your eyes
Its telling me I'm right
And if I, I am through
Then its all because of you
Just tonight
Its all because of you
Just tonight
Its all because of you
Just tonight
Its all because of you
Just tonight

What is the Meaning of Just Tonight?

This track delves into the realm of self-destruction and dependency, painting a poignant picture of despair. The lyrics depict the protagonist in a state of numbness, possibly due to substance abuse or emotional turmoil. The repeated plea "Just tonight" indicates a desperate attempt to escape reality, even if only for a moment. However, there's also an element of blame; the singer attributes their condition to another person - "it's all because of you". This could suggest an unhealthy relationship where one party feels trapped and manipulated. The song serves as a stark reminder that temporary escapism can lead to long-term damage, and toxic relationships can fuel personal deterioration.
