Tonight Is Just For Me


This is who I am
Take it or leave it
I'm not here for your pleasure
I'm my own treasure

This is my life
I'm going to live it my way
I'm putting myself first this time
Today is my day

There is beauty in everything
Even here in the dark
It has its own kind of beauty
It's dark, mysterious, and stark

I'm letting go
I'm setting myself free
I'm holding nothing back
It's time to be me

To hell with it all
You either love me or not
I'm not wasting anymore time
On a dead end plot

I'm doing what feels good
What feels right
Even if its wrong
Join me for my wild night

I'm going to party hard
All the way past dawn
I'm going to get stupid drunk
And pass out on the lawn

I'm going to start smoking again
Until a thick cloud forms
Don't look at me like that
This is my perfect storm

I'm going to dance in the rain
Strip down to my birthday suit
Dig my toes in the mud
Splash around without my boots

I'm going to sing at the top of my lungs
I don't care if I miss the note
Tonight is just for me
I'm allowed a chance to float

I'm going to scream if I want
Sob if I feel like it
I'm going to laugh for no reason
Let go for a bit

Screw everything else
Tonight is my night
No need to complicate it
I'm doing whatever feels right

I'm tired of my life
It's making me break
So just pick up your jaw
Tonight I refuse to ache

It's not you
It's me
I mean that
This is just what has to be

I'm not going to make it
If I don't rip out of my skin
So back off and chill out
I'll return to normal in...

Well... Whenever...
Whenever I damn we'll feel like it
Tonight you don't exist
Don't go throwing a fit

I still love you my dearest one
But for once you take the back burner
It's time for me to find my own joy
To break out my inner runner

I'm going, going, GONE
The stars lead the way
I cruise into the endless night
I'm going to enjoy my time away

I'm going to live in this moment
Live it solely for me
No responsibilities
Tonight is just for me
