“Save Tonight” by Eagle Eye Cherry is a song I’ve heard a lot of times, sometimes on loop, sometimes just bits and parts. I don’t really remember how and when I heard this song for the first time but I was hooked on from that day on. This, like many other songs, I had heard first before watching the video. The lyrics of the song is what got me hooked. Today, while I was over at YouTube I thought I’d check the video. I’d always wondered what it would be like. I pretty much had the whole video worked out in my head. The first thing that always comes to my mind whenever I hear the song is – a couple in one of those typical country-side houses, sitting next to a fire place, sipping some wine…

Will someone please tell me the connection !!!! What I expected and what it turned out to be…*sigh*

The lyrics…

Go on and close the curtains
All we need is candlelight
You and me and a bottle of wine
Going to hold you tonight

We know I’m going away
How I wish….wish it weren’t so
Take this wine & drink with me
Let’s delay our misery

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….it’s true
It ain’t easy to say goodbye
Darling please don’t start cry
‘Cause girl you know I’ve got to go
Lord I wish it wasn’t so

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
Girl you know I’ve got to go
Lord I wish it wasn’t so

Save tonight
And fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow
Tomorrow I’ll be gone…
