-Intro- Ab Eb Bb Cm 

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

Ab           Eb
It must be tonight
Bb           Cm
It must be tonight
Ab           Eb
It must be tonight
Bb           Cm
It must be tonight

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

Ab           Eb
It must be tonight
Bb           Cm
It must be tonight
Ab           Eb
It must be tonight
Bb           Cm
It must be tonight


Ab   Eb   Bb   Cm
Ab               Eb
And it must be tonight
Bb           Cm
It must be tonight
Ab        Eb
Save Me tonight
Bb             Eb
It must be...tonight.
