Tonight

Watch my back so I make sure
you are right behind me
as before
yesterday
the night before

Dry my eyes so you won't know
Dry my eyes so I won't show
I know you are right behind me

And don't you let me go tonight
Don't let me go tonight
Just don't let me go tonight

Walking the surface of this town
with high heels above the ground
figures past
quick steps
wind slurs
scent smoke carbon
unpleasant uneasiness

Keep me safe
until the night
falls, till
My heart falls
My strength fails
My hope falters

We know them all
I know it all
Stay put and play along
Cos I'm looking for my friend

I dry my eyes
I dry my eyes
falling deeper by the hour
don't make me fall deeper now

Just let me go tonight
