We’ve Got Tonight

Bob Seger, 1978

I know it's late, I know you're weary
I know your plans don't include me
Still here we are, both of us lonely
Longing for shelter from all that we see
Why should we worry, no one will care girl
Look at the stars so far away
We've got tonight, who needs tomorrow?
We've got tonight babe
Why don’t you stay?

Deep in my soul, I've been so lonely
All of my hopes, fading away
I've longed for love, like everyone else does
I know I'll keep searching, even after today
So there it is girl, I've said it all now
And here we are babe, what do you say?
We've got tonight, who needs tomorrow?
We've got tonight babe
Why don't you stay?

I know it's late, I know you're weary
I know your plans don't include me
Still here we are, both of us lonely
Both of us lonely

We've got tonight, who needs tomorrow?
Let's make it last, let's find a way
Turn out the light, come take my hand now
We've got tonight babe
Why don't you stay?
Why don't you stay?

Toujours dans le domaine des ballades chantées par des mecs dont on n’attend pas forcément à entendre ça … Bob Seger est plus fameux pour des chansons pseudo-rock et plutôt pop … Mais avec « We’ve got tonight » il exprime un talent et une émotion unique pour lui, loin de « Old Time Rock’n’roll » et « Against the wind » …

« We’ve got tonight », c’est aussi plein de souvenirs de la fin des années 70 et des années 80 … A l’époque il n’y avait pas une seule série de slow en boum ou en boite sans que « We’ve got tonight » ne soit joué … Ah !
