For Tonight

about

I play drums in a band called Echo Park, and after practice we generally switch instruments and mess around for a while. This last thursday I made up some vocals around a bassline that I particularly liked - the next day I grabbed my notebook and wrote the rest of the song.

The older I get, the less patience I have for time wasted on petty grievances. This song is about that.

lyrics

You shouldn't take it so seriously.
We're only here for tonight.
But you've chosen your corner,
and your look is a warning.
It's the perfect time to start a fight.

Once you asked me to dance.
It was the start of the longest night of my life.
But now you dance in the corner,
saying this moment is all we need.
We're only here for tonight.

So let's not waste our time.

And I say:
You shouldn't take it so seriously.
You shouldn't take it so seriously.
We're only here for tonight.
So come on out of the corner,
you know I didn't mean a thing.
We're only here for tonight.
We're only here for tonight.

So let's not waste our time.
So let's not waste our time.
You shouldn't waste my time.
You shouldn't waste my time.

You shouldn't take it so seriously x3
We're only here for tonight x3

Limesix is a rock band, in the 90s tradition. They maybe sound a bit like Portastatic, Yo La Tengo, and Say Hi, hopefully with some sly nods to Prince.
