Go on and close the curtains
Cause all we need is candle light
You and me and a bottle of wine
Going to hold you tonight
Well we know I'm going away
And how I wish, I wish it weren't so
So take this wine and drink with me
Let's delay our misery

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

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 to cry
Cause girl you know I've got to go, oh
Lord I wish it wasn't so

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

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, oh
Lord I wish it wasn't so

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

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

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

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

Save tonight
Save tonight
Save tonight
Save tonight

    It's pretty simple.
    He's telling her to make the most of the night, because when they wake up.
    He'll have to leave and never come back.

    Obviously- santa is having a fling/one night stand with betty crocker, who both have been spending too much time flirting on facebook. Merry xmas from hollywood via new england and waterbury, ct!

    I have three guesses as to why the boyfriend in the song has to go away. 1), he's beginning a prison sentence, or 2). He's been drafted for military service, or, 3). He's dying of cancer or aids and suspects that this may be his last night on earth. The reason for his departure is never given in this song, probably because it really isn't the main point.

    it's about a guy who doesn't want to leave his loved one, his spouse, but has to, so they're going to use the night as best they could before the next day can come and seperate them
