  • If you gotta start somewhere why not here
    If you gotta start sometime why not now
    If we gotta start somewhere I say here
    If we gotta start sometime I say now

    Through the fog there is hope in the distance
    From cathedrals to third world missions
    Love will fall to the earth like a crashing wave

    Tonight's the night
    For the sinners and the saints
    Two worlds collide in a beautiful display
    It's all love tonight
    We may step across the line
    We can sail across the sea
    To a city with one king
    A city on our knees
    A city on our knees
    Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

    If you gotta start somewhere why not here
    If you gotta start sometime why not now
    If we gotta start somewhere I say here
    If we gotta start sometime I say now
    Through the fog there is hope in the distance
    From cathedrals to third world missions
    Love will fall to the earth like a crashing wave

    Tonight's the night
    For the sinners and the saints
    Two worlds collide in a beautiful display
    It's all love tonight
    When we step across the line
    We can sail across the sea
    To a city with one king
    A city on our knees
    A city on our knees
    Oh-oh-oh

    Tonight could last forever
    We are one choice from together
    Tonight could last forever
    Ooh

    Tonight could last forever
    We are one choice from together
    As family
    We're family
    Oh tonight could last forever
    We are one choice from together
    You and me
    Ya, you and me
    Tonight's the night
    For the sinners and the saints
    Two worlds collide
    In a glorious display
    Cause its all love tonight
    When we step across the line
    We can sail across the sea
    To a city with one king
    A city on our knees
    A city on our knees
    Oh oh oh
    A city on our knees
    A city on our knees
    Oh oh oh
    If we gotta start somewhere why not here
    If we gotta start sometime why not now Writer/s: CARY RYAN BARLOWE, JAMES L. MOORE, TOBY MCKEEHAN
