Here's To The Night
EVE 6 Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

So denied
So I lied
Are you the now or never kind
In a day
And a day love
I'm gonna be gone for good again
Are you willing
To be had
Are you cool
With just tonight

Here's a toast
To all those who hear me all too well

And here's to the nights
We felt alive
Here's to the tears
You knew you'd cry
Here's to goodbye
Tomorrow's gonna come too soon

Put your name
On the line
Along with place and time
Want to stay
Not to go
I want to ditch the logical

Here's a toast
To all those who hear me all too well

Here's to the nights
We felt alive
Here's to the tears
You knew you'd cry
Here's to goodbye
Tomorrow's gonna come too soon

All my time is frozen motion
Can't I stay an hour or two or more
Don't let me let you go
Don't let me let you go

Here's a toast
To all those who hear me all too well

And here's to the nights
We felt alive
Here's to the tears
You knew you'd cry
Here's to goodbye
Tomorrow's gonna come too soon
Too soon
Here's to the nights we felt alive
Here's to the tears you knew you'd cry
Here's to goodbye
Tomorrow's gonna come too soon

The chorus raises a toast to those who understand them, and then repeats the title line, paying tribute to the unforgettable feeling of that one special night. The persona acknowledges that time is fleeting, and they don't want to let go of the one they are with, wishing time would stop so they could spend more of the precious moment together. But the inevitable goodbye is coming and the persona knows that tomorrow will come too soon.

So denied
I refused to acknowledge the truth


So I lied
I told a falsehood to cover up


Are you the now or never kind
Are you the type to seize the moment or let it slip away


In a day
In a short amount of time


And a day love
And then love will be gone again


I'm gonna be gone for good again
I know I won't be here forever


Are you willing
Are you open to the possibility


To be had
To experience something special


Are you cool
Are you okay


With just tonight
With only this one fleeting moment


Here's a toast
Let's raise a glass


To all those who hear me all too well
To those who understand me completely

Time moves too quickly


Put your name
Write down your identity


On the line
Take a risk


Along with place and time
Specify the when and where


Want to stay
I want to linger here


Not to go
I don't want to leave


I want to ditch the logical
I want to abandon rationality for a moment


All my time is frozen motion
I'm stuck in time


Can't I stay an hour or two or more
Can't we prolong this moment


Don't let me let you go
Don't let me push you away


Too soon
It's all ending too quickly

@nateturk7298

So....I write this not to get likes but to who anyone that is watching this in 2023 to knowing this was a time that was felt like a peak in life that that you felt like nothing could stop you and had all the friends in the world to later find out later that most are gone and to feel alone and when mental illness is a real thing then feel all alone like nothing again the world now is worth it. I hope I'm not alone in this fight and hope you make it out alive mentally like I'm struggling with to still find worth. God bless.
