Lyrics: 

Not Tonight Capo 5: CGCFCE

January in the dark,
Never meant to be like this….
I can see your face pressed against the glass

Voices swirling in your head
Blindfolds soaked crimson red….
You can tell yourself that this won’t….. pass,

No, Not tonight, Um... No no no Not tonight

Like cold cement and bloodied tar,
Their pound of flesh won't take them far,
That gentle candle flickers soft inside……..

Doesn't matter what they say
Images all out of shape…..
Feel’s like gravel against a banging broken gate

Even if the light might go
And leak a little from all you’ve known
Don’t let that gentle heart race quite so wild,

Instrumental - 2 Rounds (Synth)

They would burn you if they could
But your not made of straw nor wood
The lame will not become (slight pause) the mired.

No no no
Not tonight, no no no not tonight,

Doesn't matter what they say
Images all out of shape...
Feel’s like gravel against a banging broken gate

Even if the light might go
And leak a little from all you’ve known
Don’t let that gentle heart race quite so wild,

You were never meant for this
Never meant to be the one to give
So much to - PAUSE - these stony men so white,
Not tonight, No no Not tonight, Umm not tonight, It’ll be alright……..
It be alright,

all this horror cradled in such musical loveliness equals a profound sadness.....sounds a bit like paul simon crossed with smashing pumpkins
