Here Tonight (Clark)

It's ten PM and I should have made the road tonight
The moon was out and the clouds came in and took it's light
My suitcase is over there somehow I just don't care
Cause I don't want to be anywhere but right here tonight

The rains came down and I should have made an early plane
Where I'd rather be if it can't be seen then I can't explain
It's so warm in here and I want to hold you near
And there is no pain or fear right here tonight

With tomorrows dawn I will carry on what I've set aside
It's not a matter of my faith or of my pride
It just seems so insane to strike out in the rain
When it's so easy to remain right here tonight
