Smashing Pumpkins - Tonight, Tonight Lyrics




Time is never time at all
You can never ever leave without leaving a piece of youth
And our lives are forever changed
We will never be the same
The more you change the less you feel

Believe, believe in me, believe, believe

That life can change,
That you're not stuck in vain
We're not the same,
We're different tonight, tonight
Tonight, so bright
Tonight, tonight

And you know you're never sure
But you're sure you could be right
If you held yourself up to the light

And the embers never fade
In your city by the lake
The place where you were born

Believe, believe in me, believe, believe

In the resolute urgency of now
And if you believe
There's not a chance tonight, tonight
Tonight, so bright
Tonight, tonight

We'll crucify the insincere tonight, tonight
We'll make things right,
We'll feel it all tonight, tonight

We'll find a way to offer up the night tonight
The indescribable moments of your life tonight

The impossible is possible tonight, tonight
Believe in me as I believe in you tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight

    I was a really bad heroin addict. nothing could stop me from destroying my life. in rehab, I walked into the garden and the counselor had this song playing on a portable speaker and I got this feeling of absolute hope. I felt it and it kept me going, gave me the ability to wake up the next day and keep going.
    believe in me, cos I believe in you tonight.

  7. Murat Ersoy

    A hot summers night forever ago...

  24. Brandon Ortiz

    PLEASE ANSWER: Does anyone remember a cartoon from around the late 1970's to early 1980's that had the same theme and artwork as this music video? It was a bizarre cartoon from my childhood that I haven't been able to find. Basically, a group of people make it to the moon using early steam-punk tech and find aliens living on the moon with sprockets. I know that sounds weird, but the last time I saw the cartoon I was about 6 or so. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if this music video was influenced by that cartoon as they look eerily similar.

    Slim deSkunk

    This video is inspired by the George Melies movie, A Trip to the Moon.

  25. Maya Contemporaneo

    I want to go back to 90 please

  26. Thompsongs

    Back when the radio was flooded with music of this caliber, I had no way to imagine we would have resources such as YouTube, to be a time capsule back to those memories and those times. Heck, I had no clue any of those moments in my childhood would become halcyonic memories. This is the next best thing to a real time machine, and I'm grateful.

  27. Brian Binnie

    Weird video - cool song. Take me back to my teenage years.

  28. LoneScript

    "The more you change the less you feel."
    So true

  29. Rafael Rosa

    VH1 feelings <3

  30. OGPATRIOT05

    And that's about the time she walked away from me. Nobody likes you when.... youre.... twen...oops. wrong song... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  31. Joey billionaire raul Marquez Guillen

    Good job girly.:

  32. This is Ajang

    This video is a beautiful tribute to the great George Meliés

  33. alex

    Looking at this song's Wikipedia page, I learned that Tom Kenny (voice of Spongebob, Ice King) and his wife play the main couple for the video. Thanks, Wikipedia.

  34. Paul Bäumer

    I presented this song my tow girls years back - they still talk about it... with their cool father ...



    William I owe you something.


    Grüße Paul

  35. Ke Lovely

    I remember them performing this on the MTV awards years back. I love this song. For some reason, I feel like Johnny Depp’s character in Charlie and the Chocolate factory would sound like this if he sung a song. 🤷‍♀️😂

  36. Augustus Cardoso

    Alguém em 2020 ou eternamente?

  37. Bill Weaver

    Thank God for Billy Corgan

  38. Repressed

    My friend Veronica looks like the girl version of the main singer-

  39. Simon Matthews

    Tonight, Tonight

    The Smashing Pumpkins

    Time is never time at all
    You can never ever leave without leaving a piece of youth
    And our lives are forever changed
    We will never be the same
    The more you change the less you feel
    Believe, believe in me, believe

    That life can change, that you're not stuck in vain
    We're not the same, we're different tonight
    Tonight, so bright
    Tonight

    And you know you're never sure
    But you're sure you could be right
    If you held yourself up to the light

    And the embers never fade in your city by the lake
    The place where you were born
    Believe, believe in me, believe
    In the resolute urgency of now

    And if you believe there's not a chance tonight
    Tonight, so bright tonight
    We'll crucify the insincere tonight
    We'll make things right, we'll feel it all tonight
    We'll find a way to offer up the night tonight
    The indescribable moments of your life tonight
    The impossible is possible tonight
    Believe in me as I believe in you, tonight

  49. yehonathan

    This remember me so much my childhood, that part so innocent, so pure. Going to theaters with my parents, take subway, eat some mcdonalds or eating sweet popcorns, back home tired but happy. This music remember me the good of life.

  50. James Henderson

    Time is never time at all
    You can never ever leave
    Without leaving a piece of youth
    And our lives are forever changed
    We will never be the same
    The more you change the less you feel
    Believe, believe in me, believe, believe
    That life can change that you're not stuck in vain
    We're not the same, we're different
    Tonight, tonight, tonight
    So bright
    Tonight, tonight
    And you know you're never sure
    But you're sure you could be right
    If you held yourself up to the light
    And the embers never fade
    In your city by the lake
    The place where you were born
    Believe, believe in me, believe, believe
    In the resolute urgency of now
    And if you believe there's not a chance
    Tonight, tonight, tonight
    So bright
    Tonight, tonight
    We'll crucify the insincere tonight
    (Tonight)
    We'll make things right, we'll feel it all tonight
    (Tonight)
    We'll find a way to offer up the night
    (Tonight)
    The indescribable moments of your life
    (Tonight)
    The impossible is possible tonight
    (Tonight)
    Believe in me as I believe in you
    Tonight, tonight, tonight
    Tonight, tonight

  57. jmwild1

    A beautiful tribute to Georges Méliès.

  58. NewsFeedNOMNOM FeedMeNow

    Man, it's been 20 years since I saw this music video. It took me 20 years to realize that at the 2 min mark Billy Corgan and the gang snap into a Slim Jim.

  59. Chris Livingsten

    I listen to this every time I'm about to start a new chapter in my life, like moving somewhere, or quitting a job to start a new one. It makes me feel excited about the adventure of change rather than worried.

    pyewackett 5

    Listening to this quite alot recently - i'm facing so much change right now, its all good , don't get me wrong - but it's still really daunting. Your comment really struck a chord with me. Know exactly what you mean. The power of Pumpkins !! : )

    pierre stpierre

    change......hum I hear ya I became addicted to just that.. I'm 55 and my fifth career-changing job

    TheScarletPumpernel

    interesting, had the urge to put this on for brexit day.

    Chris Livingsten

    @pyewackett 5 wow that's really cool, yeah life's an adventure.
    I didn't expect to get so many likes either, lol.

    @Pauline De Jesus That is all so true Pauline, but have faith there are still some amazing, inventive, and truly motivational artists and songwriters out there and thanks to you tube they can be found!. I was born in 1974 and the best years of my life were the 90's amazing music, amazing times especially in the UK.

    Pauline De Jesus

    @Daz-0 Baz-0 maybe you're right. There may yet be some Unlimited potential that has yet to be discovered. Girl me, the music of the 80s and 90s were the best for me. (Loved the music of the 50s, 60s and 70s, too, but 80s and 90s were memorable staples in my life.)

    Jarred Conway

    Will never stop listening...

    Shaun Sanders

    Pauline De Jesus it’s a beautiful song
