I wrote this after a gig where almost no one came out. The first and last verses were influenced by the final letter I received from an ex-girlfriend. There was no return address so this is my reply.

Tonight

Did you forget me tonight
After you turned out the lights,
Do I ever pass through your dreams
With the sound of my silent screams.

And the loneliness creeps in
As the phone no longer sings,
So I turn out all the lights
To hide from my sight.

Did you hear me tonight
Does anyone know if I got it right?
How can I believe they care
When no one was there.

And the sadness creeps in
As the sky loses light,
Is there anybody home
Is anyone else alone?

Will you leave hear tonight
Hoping to catch the last train,
'Ever left your soul in the rain
'Cause you couldn't take the pain.

And the shadow peaks in
As the curtains close,
Now that everybody's gone
I can move on.

Will you forget me tonight
When they turn out these lights,
Will I pass through your dreams
With the sound of my silent screams.
