Bob Seger - We've Got Tonight Lyrics




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' 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?

  7. alex jackson

    wonder years

  8. Angie

    This is mine and my husband's song. The first time we knew that we had fell in love was during this song. Back in 1999.

  9. Milofire :3

    So who actually penned this Kenny or Bob?

  10. NothingMaster

    Sometimes you can recover a lifetime of fade-away hopes in a night; when she stays.

  11. Living-in Ibiza

    I still love you big roo.,. Broken hearing this... you’re over 200km away in that little place in england with the wind blowing and rain thats nowhere near as bad as my tears.... xx dec 2019 😢

    “She gave me this look – she might have been watching from a lifeboat as the ship went down. Or maybe it was the other way around.” ― Haruki Murakami, Pinball, 1973

    Still listening in December 2019....."both of us still lonely".

  15. May Loo

    Does anyone remember this from an episode of The Wonder Years?

    C V

    I do! The Wonder Years included a lot of great music, although heartbreaking and gut-wrenching.

  16. Gerald Hilter

    Can't enjoy a good song with all them boomers talking about HoW gOoD ThE olD DaYs WeRE in the comments. Today's music is aimed at a new generation, that does not mean that it's bad. I enjoy this song, and I still try to embrace the new ones. The future is now boomers.

  17. aquapod6000

    Nothing brought me here but memories of growing up to this music.....now I’m gonna turn this up and let all me neighbors listen in.

  18. John Short

    Classic ROCK GOES WITH OUT SAYING

  29. Will Dwyer

  39. dino vidal

    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?

    Classic from 1979 40 years and still wonderful

  43. Dangerous Dennis

    Sang this to a lady one night , she stayed, cheers Bob..........

  44. Steve R

    This song just turns me to mush. It used to be due to the Wonder Years episode that I enjoyed many years ago, but now it’s something else. I have fallen for another woman while still married. While I still love my wife, I wish there was a way to have a romantic relationship with my other friend as well, if only for one night. This song makes me think of her.

  45. Kamara Mikel

    Oh my!!! Beautiful song ... even today.

  46. Tammy S

    "Deep in my soul, I've been so lonely. All of my hopes, fading away".

  47. Diane Martinez

    My 1982 HS prom song. I was so lucky to grow up in a never of Bob Seger I love all kinds of Music, musician but he is truly my favorite missed him when he was in New York so sad I wish she will come back I would definitely get tickets a legend💫🙏🎹🎸🎶🎵💙

  48. Maritza Martinez

  49. Buddy Holly

    Just got my heart broke by a women I knew was just a hope fading away. That’s my luck I guess 💔

  50. Anselmo Gonçalves

  51. Daniel Marin

    If you could imagine...You just met a girl at a club...she is cool you are cool and there is a little magic happening...then they play We Got Tonight and you hold her gently then tighter then.....Thanks Bob Seger...This really happened in 1978,,,still married

  54. Sootys Disco

    Coming to see you in Toronto oct 26 2019 ..2 generations...listened to you in Ireland as teenagers now in N America.

    Sootys Disco

  55. Kevin Bland

    Really great song. Nice arrangement and vocals. Love the way the strings just lay behind in the background. I thing the background singers were the same called "The Colored Girls" in that Lou Reed classic, Walk on the wild side.

  70. Axel Werner

    First these was Seger with this amazing Melody and chords. A hit record already. Then along came some genius and pimped it up with state of the art 80s synth and put Easton and Rogers in it and it just explodes . What a masterpiece!!

    Ken Perk

    What are you talking about? That's all Barry Beckett.

  71. Melvin Tobar

    I love this song,

  72. Allan Thompson

    A truly great song , BUT, that video ????

  73. Jackie Acheson

    Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet band greatest hits was my first tape, that wasn't kids music. I was 10. I have always loved his voice. He is one of the best.
    Edit: thank goodness for technology that doesnt require keeping a pen or pencil close by for tape unraveling emergencies.

  74. Abelardo Alvarado

    Monto bella cancione

  75. Trev740

  76. jaime Ortiz

    He knows but I don't see her on a corner like a sell out what she knew.

  78. RIDETHESUNSHINE
