tonight lyrics – upchurch

[hook]
i’m gonna set this city on fire tonight, tonight
gonna walk down broadway, watch the flames and the neon light
tonight, tonight, oh tonight

[verse 1]
i set the city to flames and watch the purple and blues
captivate the little bars playing hillbilly tunes
watch the tours coasting in slow motion happy with the motion
’cause they think they’ll get to see somebody famous in person
look, i was born in nashville, my experience is different
to me, it’s nothing but a pit of snakes embedded with sickness
’cause i can’t even be accepted in the town i was raised in
the voice of the radio, or face of a cool kid

i’m gonna set this city on fire tonight, tonight
gonna walk down broadway, watch the flames and the neon light
tonight, tonight, oh tonight

[verse 2]
in music city i don’t get tipsy off of the liquor
i don’t hit up tin roof to see what’s popping on the weekend
i sit in centennial park and watch the world rotate around me
and listen to people whisper how they think that i’m clowning
so go ahead and keep sleeping on the roots that i rooted here
i was born in baptist hospital back in 1991
and i ain’t gotta wear boots to prove where i’m from
but you can cross the city limits, hear the roaring of trucks
when the world turns green i can still see the skyline
this hometown boy don’t ever wanna be signed
’cause we live with their talking and when we talk of this trash
attach white to the label, see how businessmen act
and they don’t want sh-t from the heart, they want them dollars for their pockets
so if i start a wild fire there ain’t not promise i could stop it
so when the last guitar smashes and the last legend dies
won’t you look up the history of the 615

[hook]
i’m gonna set this city on fire tonight, tonight
gonna walk down broadway, watch the flames and the neon light
tonight, tonight, oh tonight
i’m gonna set this city on fire tonight, tonight
gonna walk down broadway, watch the flames and the neon light
tonight, tonight, oh tonight
tonight, tonight, oh tonight
tonight, tonight, oh tonight
