Lyrics & Music by James L. Murrell
Album: The Source
The Source

"Tonight" is a folk/rock/samba/bluegrass/fusion protest song! It is on my new album "The Source". It features the mandolin a lot as the main chordal instrument & has a cool fusion guitar solo in it.

"I started playing the mandolin about 2 years ago. After learning some basics on the instrument, I wrote the chords to "Tonight" on the mandolin. The lyrics came from thinking about what is going on with the world around me recently. We could make changes to this world to make it a better place if we only try".
There's a lot I don't know
Like why wars are waged by men
There's a lot that makes no sense
Like watching my friends lose everything
I wish I could help them

Sometimes I can't sleep at night
I wake up in a fright

And all the world's asleep tonight
Please wake up before the end's in sight

We could bring each other up
Give your brother a helping hand
Help with the needy and poor
You would like it if you gave it a chance
Together I know we can

And we could sleep tonight
Knowing we gave it a fight

But all the world's asleep tonight
Please wake up before the end's in sight..


I wish this war would end
And all the soldiers come home again
I wish that we could help
Stop all the hate that's destroying man
I wish this war had never been

And somewhere in the world tonight
Love could win over this fight
But all the world's asleep tonight
Please wake up before the end's in sight

Look around you my friends
Don't look away just because you're afraid
I need your help with this plan
Together we'll do it, I know we can
Please come and take my hand

And we could win this fight
It's our lives, and our right

And all the world's asleep tonight
Please wake up before the end's in sight
Tonight..
