I know it's been a while now,
Since you last heard from me,
Or talked to me
It's been kind of hard lately
I've had a lot on my mind
It's been so long that,
I'm afraid that the words may not come out right
But, tonight I'll try
Tonight
Tonight I'll try
Tonight

I know that prayin' ain't always easy
It's hard sometimes to express what you feel inside
Especially when you don't think God is listening
It's been raining now for sometime
But instead of what I see
You want me to trust You, working it out for me
So, tonight I will try
Tonight
Oh oh oh
Tonight I'll try
Tonight

Who ever told you that living in this world would be easy?
Baby, they lied
And, whoever said that lovin' folk that don't love you back ain't really hard
Even though you really tryin'
Telling you what I'm going through
Sometimes it's harder than I realize
But tonight I'll try
Tonight
Tonight I'll try
Tonight

So, tonight when you get home
You oughta unplug the phone
And get alone
Tell your Father how you truly feel
Even if your words don't come out right
For no matter how far you've gone
God's love can find you, and bring you back home
So, tonight you oughta try,
Tonight
So, tonight you oughta try,
Tonight

Who ever told you that living in this world would be easy?
Baby, they lied
And, whoever said that lovin' folk who don't love you back ain't really hard
Even though you really tryin'
Telling you what I'm going through
Sometimes it's harder than I realize
But tonight I'll try
Tonight
Tonight I'll try
Tonight

Tonight
Take away my pain (Tonight)
Take away my strains (Tonight)
And let me live (Tonight)
All over again (Tonight)
Tonight I'm gonna throw my hands up (Tonight)
Tonight I'm gonna give it all up (Tonight)
Tonight I wanna turn it all around (Tonight)
Put my feet on solid ground (Tonight)
Won't you take me where you need to take me (Tonight)
Won't you do with me what you wanna do with me (Tonight)
Tonight
Tonight
This night
Tonight
I'm yours
I'm yours [x3]
