You, you got me thinking it'll be alright.
You, you told me, "Come and take a look inside."
You believed me, in every single lie.
But I, I failed you this time.

And it feels like tonight,
I can't believe I'm broken inside.
Can't you see that there's nothing that I wanna do,
But try to make it up to you?
And it feels like tonight,
Tonight.

I was waiting for the day you'd come around.
I was chasing, but nothing was all I found.
From the moment you came into my life,
You showed me what's right.

And it feels like tonight,
I can't believe I'm broken inside.
Can't you see that there's nothing that I wanna do,
But try to make it up to you?
And it feels like tonight,
Tonight.

I never felt like this before.
Just when I leave, I'm back for more.
Nothing else here seems to matter.
And in these ever-changing days,
You're the one thing that remains.
I could stay like this forever.

And it feels like tonight.
I can't believe I'm broken inside.
Can't you see that there's nothing that I wanna do,
But try to make it up to you?
And it feels like tonight,
Tonight.
(Feels like tonight, )
Tonight.
(Feels like tonight, )
'Cause there's nothing that I wanna do,
But try to make it up to you.
And it feels like tonight,
Tonight.

    He lied to the one he loved (or God) and just wants to make it up to them (or God). He can't believe how stupid he was and now he just wants to be forgiven.

    I haven't been through this but i believe it's too sensitive situation,too hard to decide if you will forgive him or not.ok, you love him but you can't do this to yourself,first of all;if you forgive,you give him the chance to step on you then he takes you for granted and then it's a circle.he'll probably do the same again cause he'll know you will forgive him... From the other hand if you don't forgive him,you won't be able to know if your relationship had a future/second chance and if he was prepared to proove his feelings.except that it hurts so much.i feel that i'm not the right person to judge but i've seen and heard a lot.

    I had someone in my life that hurt me over and over again always telling me he wanted to show me how different he could be. I believed it over and over again, it was what I wanted to believe (my fault). Twice he said it's tonight and each time a new excuse. The third time I sat home and waited and he said he just needed more time. I'm not waiting for tonight anymore. I told him goodbye finally. Goodbye Craig...this song is all thats left of US

    This song is great, it talks about how he lied to be with his one true love and then wants to make it up to the person. I've done that too, and its really hard to get over. But this song is great, all his music is great.
