The Echo (maybe Tonight) (Bleu Edmondson)

The sinners and the saints and the suicide girls Passion into darkness and the pawnshop pearls One place, one time, one love, we owned the night And the tender souls wondered where the faith has all gone And the neon on Lamar came rumbling on We swore they wouldn't take us down without a fight Hopeless hearted hunters waging war on the stars We cheered the revolution from a rooftop bar And swore to one another only we could make it right We said Maybe tonight Maybe tonight Maybe tonight we can I remember your kiss like TNT How it rattled every long gone part of me And in the heat of the night you shook when you said my name And the precious drop of sweat running down your back Like a southbound train burning down the track Two martyrs in a world that would never be the same Among the midnight runners and the teenage stunners Searching for the light of day we hoped against hope we could find one voice To sing what we were desperate to say We said Maybe tonight Maybe tonight Maybe tonight we can And the tears running down your face Like a sad broken prophets parade While this dirty city sleeps tonight To the Gutterat serenade Underneath that holy streetlight We can take it all back again And it's the echo of the wounded heart in the night That proves we were born to win
