I remember the times we spent together on those drives
We had a million questions all about our lives
And when we got to New York, everything felt right
I wish you were here with me tonight

I remember the days we spent together were not enough
And it used to feel like dreamin' except we always woke up
Never thought not having you here now, would hurt so much

Tonight I've fallen and I can't get up
I need your loving hands to come and pick me up
And every night I miss you
I can just look up and know the stars are
Holdin' you, holdin' you, holdin' you tonight

I remember the time you told me about when you were eight
And all those things you said that night that just couldn't wait
I remember the car you were last seen in
And the games we would play
All the times we spilled our coffees and stayed out way too late

I remember the time you sat and told me about your Jesus
And how not to look back even if no one believes us
When it hurt so bad sometimes not having you here
I sing

Tonight I've fallen and I can't get up
I need your loving hands to come and pick me up
And every night I miss you
I can just look up and know the stars are
Holdin' you, holdin' you, holdin' you tonight

I sing, tonight I've fallen and I can't get up
I need your loving hands to come and pick me up
And every night I miss you
I can just look up and know the stars are
Holdin' you, holdin' you, holdin' you tonight

    Do you know the story of tonight? It was really a sad story. D composer was engaged with his long time gf. As they depart 4 work, his gf died and was 1 of the Sept. 11 incident at twin towers. He was so deeply heartbroken and devastated thus, composed this song in honor of his gf. Isn't it a bit sad as you hear d song, it portrays much of longing 4 someone whom you've miss so much. =(

    This song is about a girl who died. Her lover apparently finds it hard to go on, and he usually remembers the moments he had with his beloved. I think the girl died in a car accident(and I remember the car you were last seen in). This tragedy just mekes me so sad. I love fm static, theire songs are so full of substance not just some worthless piece of crap.

    The song is about a girl who passed away and the boy can't move on
    he just reminisce the times they were together. Actually this sing is already on the sound track of mandy moore's movie "a walk to remember"
    So this song is really for the people who lost their loved one.
    I also enjoy this song because the feeling has a great impact in my life.
