Here's to the Night is an alternative rock song by Eve 6 composed by Max Collins, Jon Siebels, and Tony Fagenson. It was first released as track 5 on the album Horrorscope on 2000-07-25, then released as a single on 2001-05-22 with B-sides of "Inside Out," "Tongue Tied," and a TLC cover of "Waterfalls." A promotional single was also sent out to radio stations that included a call out hook for the song and an alternate rhythmic mix was also made.

While I don't remember when I first heard this song, I remember downloading the video using Kazaa and really enjoying it. The song is slower than most other Eve 6 songs and uses a string section to give it a much more melodious sound. Although it's fairly repetitious, it tells a bittersweet story of two lovers who are being separated because the man has to leave. Despite knowing that he has to go, he still wants to stay with the woman who he has fallen in love with and hates that he is being rational when he would prefer to give up his important business and just stay with her. I also like how the song calls out to everyone who has ever been faced with this situation, which I'm sure is a very frequent and painful thing for anyone with a traveling career like a musician.

Lyrics

So denied
So I lied
Are you the now or never kind?
In a day
And a day love
I'm gonna be gone for good again
Are you willing
To be had?
Are you cool
With just tonight?

Here's a toast
To all those who hear me all too well

Here's to the nights
We felt alive
Here's to the tears
You knew you'd cry
Here's to goodbye
Tomorrow's gonna come too soon

Put your name
On the line
Along with place and time
Wanna stay
Not to go
I wanna ditch the logical

Here's a toast
To all those who hear me all too well

Here's to the nights
We felt alive
Here's to the tears
You knew you'd cry
Here's to goodbye
Tomorrow's gonna come too soon

All my time is froze in motion
Can't I stay an hour or two or more
Don't let me let you go
Don't let me let you go

Here's a toast
To all those who hear me all too well

Here's to the nights
We felt alive
Here's to the tears
You knew you'd cry
Here's to goodbye
Tomorrow's gonna come too soon
Too soon

Here's to the nights we felt alive
Here's to the tears you knew you'd cry
Here's to goodbye
Tomorrow's gonna come too soon
