Urdu Hall

The following are the lyrics of the one hit wonder group called "Eagle Eye Cherry"
The track is titled "Save Tonight"
-------------------------------------
go on and close the curtains
'cause all we need is candlelight
you and me ... and the bottle of wine
and hold you tonight [ ohh ]

well we know i'm going away
and how i wish - i wish it weren't so
so take this wine and drink with me
let's delay our misery

save tonight and fight the break of dawn
come tomorrow - tomorrow i'll be gone

there's a log on the fire
and it burns like me for you
tomorrow comes with one desire
to take me away [ ohh it's true ]

it ain't easy to say good bye
darling please - don't start to cry
'cause girl you know i've got to go
and Lord i wish it wasn't so

save tonight and fight the break of dawn
come tomorrow - tomorrow i'll be gone

tomorrow comes to take me away
i wish that i - that i could stay
but girl you know i've got to go
and Lord i wish weren't so

oh thats right
save tonight - save tonight

I thought Eagle-eye Cherry had another hit to his credit (with his cousin Neneh Cherry) - Seven Minutes..or something like that. Was quite a hit a few years back...
Thx for the trivia on HCB - he's taken pics of quite a few greats I know. The bit bt MG was what snagged my attn, thats why I put that in. He's greater achievements I've not mentioned on my blog - neither his technical achievements (coz those flew above my head!)
Do visit again!

[iii] That is left as an exerscise for the reader.No I am just kidding.Somehow it just happened that "urdu Hall", a place in Hyderabad and the lyrics resonated with each other for my experience and hence the title.
Good Eye.

[Geetanjali] Thanks for visiting my blog.I didnt know that Eagle eye cherry had a hit back then.I gotta verify that stuff but nevertheless thank you for letting me know.
