Tonight We're Gonna Give It 35% Lyrics - Against Me!

Review The Song (5)



We drank bottled water together and talked business.
I think I played the right moves.
You were lookin' over my shoulder,
as I went through the motions of another night,
And it was alright,
'cause I thought I knew who everybody was just by lookin' at them.
My heart is anywhere but here,
and how tired I was from the past couple of weeks,
From the past couple of years.
Well, it hit me all at once,
On a balcony overlooking nothing,
With snow falling all around,
Well I, I called just to say "Goodnight".
And you hadn't done anything wrong,
And know, really, really, it's me not you.
I can't believe how naive I was to think things could ever be so simple,
And can you live with what you know about yourself,
When you're all alone, behind closed doors?
The things we never said, but we always knew were right there.
It's got me on my knees in a bathroom,
Praying to a God that I don't even believe in,
"Well, dear Jesus, are you listening?
If this is the one chance that really matters,
Well, don't let me fuck this up.
If you'd told me about all this when I was fifteen,
I never would have believed it."

Interesting, heart breaking | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/19/14

Wow...it's actually really heart-wrenching to go back through these old songs, and it becomes pretty damn clear exactly what the lyrics are getting at! I didn't really care about Against Me! until Laura came out--yeah, I thought they were just another punk band going for the cash grab; I now get these songs on a very different level. Following her narrative through tormented teenage ideology coupled with a secret but pervasive dysphoria, into finally becoming herself, is really one of the more touching and inspiring--and PUNK--experiences I've ever had.

Folk Punk Is Great! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/16/12

To the person above me.... Old Crow Medicine Show is folk-punk and they rule! and are sorta popular nowadays (and obviously so is Against Me! (which actually kinda sucks! a lot!)) The Genre also includes the likes of great bands such as the Pogues, Defiance, Ohio and Violent Femmes!

I have listened Against Me! for years & I have loved thier music. This song is beautiful and it puts me in an unhappy but lovely mood. My favorite part of the song is
"If this is the one chance that really matters,
don't let me fuck this up. If you had told me about all this when I was fifteen, I never would have believed it..... "
Because i am 15 and i feel like its my life.
I love AM!
rock on.

Bottled Water + Business | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/16/07

It's got me on my knees in a bathroom,
praying to a god I don't even believe in,
"Dear jesus...are you listening?"

My favorite line of any and every song written ever. even the ones i haven't heard.

This band deserves so much more credit than they get.

Genius | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/10/06

This song is an instant classic. The greatest folk punk song of all time. Which isn't much. Like being the worlds tallest midget, or shortest giant. But this song has brought me to tears, and close many times. This is a song that is in every single music lovers collection, well, at least it should be. Everything is perfect. In terms of great song writers you have many. Elton John and Tim Rice, Bob Dylan, Lennon and McCartney, and Tom Gabrel.
