smashing pumpkins’ original words in quotes, shere-akrhan’s words not in quotes

Have you grabbed the night
Or are you still searching wide and far
Do you still believe
In what you said last March
The organ keys are strummed
While I walk to Acme parched
But to me Quonset Hut’s not roofed in rust
Music dawned, every day I ride the waves
Over land left in dust
And Honus is not dead, I still lust
For driving fast in cars
At the speed of light towards the stars
Cause forever I have longed
To see a day where I don’t
Wake to stay in a bed
Of thoughts that don’t belong
I won’t forget our time
The lives we live aren’t dark
Our fears are just a part
The cries are the spark
I’ve always dug deep
Spades of diamonds from my heart
Shining in my early day’s clubs
And now I extol the start
Sitting on a bench on Clarke
Where shall I whistle and march
North, South, West or East in absolute
In due time there’ll be new
So I close my eyes
Searching for the places beyond truth
Tonight, tonight
Tonight cannot come soon enough

“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
Were not the same, were 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”

Akron, Miami, Oh – hi – o
Greencastle and Chicago
Oh man, oh man
I’ve walked so far
I have a pad of paper
In my folded hands
Sitting in my lap
As I’m on the road
Pencil behind my ear
Clipping back my locks
Edward Scissors are Sharpe
Making Alabama, Arkansas
Sound so grand
I long for Home
And I don’t want to be
Trapped no more
Behind the door
To the promise land
But they closed the route to the North
The detour heads back and forth
Zig – zags, I slide across the dashboard
The Sky Way better open up
In time for clouds to pass thru
Or the stars won’t arrive in time
For the act tonight
But I got the power to grab a broom
And sweep away the sorrow
Cause who wants to attend a downpour
Neither the bride nor groom
Tonight, tonight
Tonight cannot come soon enough

“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
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”
