-Intro- Eb Bb F Gm 

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

Eb           Bb
It must be tonight
F           Gm
It must be tonight
Eb           Bb
It must be tonight
F           Gm
It must be tonight

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

Eb           Bb
It must be tonight
F           Gm
It must be tonight
Eb           Bb
It must be tonight
F           Gm
It must be tonight


Eb   Bb   F   Gm
Eb               Bb
And it must be tonight
F           Gm
It must be tonight
Eb        Bb
Save Me tonight
F             Bb
It must be...tonight.
