Tonight is a duet with the great Marie Fisker, who lends her voice to this album and lifts every song with it. As a tune, it’s pretty straight-ahead and I wrote it just before we recorded, thinking about what the album already had and what it still needed. The lyrics don’t have any special hidden coded message, but people are welcome to choose their adventures and interpretations. We went pretty deep and romantic with the production on this one.

music & lyrics by Ned Ferm
WELL, I NEED YOU – I NEED YOU TONIGHT
CAN YOU HEAR ME CALLING?
THERE’S SOMETHING THAT JUST AIN’T RIGHT
I BEEN SO LONELY TODAY
NEED MY ONE AND ONLY TO SAY
I’M WITH YOU TONIGHT
WELL, I’M WASTED – I’M WASTED TONIGHT
THE BOTTLE IS LONG GONE
WITH THE DISAPPEARING LIGHT
I BEEN SO THIRSTY TODAY
SO PLEASE DON’T HURT ME JUST STAY
DON’T LEAVE ME TONIGHT
WELL, I WANT YOU – I WANT YOU TONIGHT
ALL I NEED TO KNOW
IS THE SAME THING IN YOUR MIND?
YOU’VE BEEN TEASING MY HEARTSTRINGS TODAY
OR ARE WE JUST PLAYING THE GAME?
COME ON, LOVE ME TONIGHT
