Upchurch – Tonight Lyrics

[Chorus]
I'm gonna set this city on fire tonight, tonight
Gonna walk down Broadway
Watch the flames and the neon lights (neon lights)
Tonight, tonight, oh tonight

[Verse 1]
I set the city to flames and watch the purple and blues
Captivate the little bars playin' hillbilly tunes
Watch the tourists coastin' 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 nothin' 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

[Chorus]
I'm gonna set this city on fire tonight, tonight
Gonna walk down Broadway
Watch the flames and the neon lights (neon lights)
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 poppin' 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 clownin'
So go ahead and keep sleepin' 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 roarin' 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 talkin' and when we talk of this trash
Attach white to the label, see how businessmen act
And they don't want shit 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 is smashed and the last legend dies
Won't you look up the history of the 615
[Chorus]
I'm gonna set this city on fire tonight, tonight
Gonna walk down Broadway
Watch the flames and the neon lights (neon lights)
Tonight, tonight, oh tonight

I'm gonna set this city on fire tonight, tonight
Gonna walk down Broadway
Watch the flames and the neon lights (neon lights)
Tonight, tonight, oh tonight

[Outro]
Tonight, tonight, oh tonight
(Tonight, oh tonight)
Tonight, tonight, oh tonight
