-Intro- Gb Db Ab Bbm 

-Verse #1-
Gb                       Db                  Ab               Bbm
The young boy wants to move ahead and the old man sings rewind
Gb              Db                      Ab                  Bbm
I wonder when in this timeline we'll break to the other side
Gb                Db                    Ab                  Bbm
Maybe there's a span of time when we feel we're neither nor
Gb                  Db                  Ab             Bbm
Not wanting to go back again and not wanting to go forth
Gb                       Bbm        Db                  Ab
That point of life must be pretty dark and hopeless, terrifying 
Gb                     Bbm         Db      Ab
And if you're asking me when that is...

Gb           Db
It must be tonight
Ab           Bbm
It must be tonight
Gb           Db
It must be tonight
Ab           Bbm
It must be tonight

-Verse #2-
Gb                     Db              Ab                Bbm
The old man sits all by himself and thinks of better years
Gb                Db                           Ab              Bbm
When he used to believe in stars and would dream away his fears
Gb                       Db               Ab             Bbm
The young boy moves so fast he doesn't see the stars above
Gb                       Db                  Ab                Bbm
And all his dreams are crushed by old man who didn't dream enough
Gb            Bbm             Db                  Ab
We must all agree that the point in life when darkness breaks our 
Gb                  Bbm              Db       Ab
Brittle hopes and dreams, and I'd say...

Gb           Db
It must be tonight
Ab           Bbm
It must be tonight
Gb           Db
It must be tonight
Ab           Bbm
It must be tonight


Gb   Db   Ab   Bbm
Gb               Db
And it must be tonight
Ab           Bbm
It must be tonight
Gb        Db
Save Me tonight
Ab             Db
It must be...tonight.
