Artist: Eagle-Eye Cherry

Save Tonight – Eagle-Eye Cherry

Eagle-Eye Cherry is a Swedish musician. He is the son of jazz artist, Don Cherry, and half brother of singer Neneh Cherry.

Cherry was christened Eagle-Eye because the first time he looked at his father, he did so with only one eye open. As children, Eagle-Eye and his older sister Neneh spent months on the road with their father, the trumpeter Don Cherry. At the age of 12, Cherry was sent to school in New York, where he stayed on to work as an actor, and a drummer in various bands. In 1988, he was credited as “teenager” in the film Arthur 2: On the Rocks. In 1993 he starred on the short lived NBC action/adventure television show South Beach.

His father died in 1995, and in 1996 he returned to Sweden to begin writing and making his debut album, Desireless, which became a commercial success throughout the world during 1998 and 1999.

Go on and close the curtains
‘Cause all we need is candlelight
You and me … and the bottle of wine
And hold you tonight [ ohh ]

Well we know I’m going away
And how i wish – i wish it weren’t so
So take this wine and drink with me
Let’s delay our misery

Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow – tomorrow I’ll be gone
Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow – tomorrow I’ll be gone

There’s a log on the fire
And it burns like me for you
Tomorrow comes with one desire
To take me away [ ohh it's true ]

It ain’t easy to say good bye
Darling please – don’t start to cry
‘Cause girl you know I’ve got to go [ohh ]
And Lord i wish it wasn’t so

Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow – tomorrow I’ll be gone
Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow – tomorrow I’ll be gone

Tomorrow comes to take me away
I wish that i – that i could stay
But girl you know I’ve got to go [ohh ]
and Lord i wish wasn’t so

Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow – tomorrow I’ll be gone
Come tomorrow – tomorrow I’ll be gone
Come tomorrow – tomorrow I’ll be gone
Come tomorrow – tomorrow I’ll be gone

Tomorrow I’ll be gone
Tomorrow I’ll be gone
Tomorrow I’ll be gone
Tomorrow I’ll be gone

Save tonight
Save tonight
Save tonight
Save tonight
Oh that’s right
Save tonight – save tonight
