Lyrics
It all starts tonight
Tonight's the night I guess
So let's go take some drugs
And let's go have some sex
The first time it's alright
The future starts tonight

And you cannot make everything alright
But you could stop being wrong
Tonight
Tonight

And someone's getting born
And someone's getting killed
Somebody falls in love
Somebody falls from a window sill
But you, you just sit tight
Hiding out from life

Oh and you cannot set the world to rights
But you could stop being wrong
Oh tonight
Yeah tonight

Well, the past devours the future
The world is changing the shape
And someone's getting a piercing done for goodness sake!
Tonight
Tonight
Tonight
Yeah tonight

Oh and all the culture vultures
And all the snot-nosed kids
And all the so-called artists, wannabes and never-dids
You claim you're not involved
But you're in up to your neck
The night belongs to lovers
So show some respect

Oh and you cannot set the world to rights
But you could stop being wrong
Oh tonight
Oh tonight
Oh tonight
Oh tonight

Oh tonight
