Tonight You're Perfect - New Politics



The Experience: New Politics sings their dreams, seeking "a reason to be... someone to believe in." Love fulfils their ideals in this guitar-driven song. 




Official Video:  With a cancelled flight in Iceland, New Politics drives around the island, until their car breaks down... which isn't such a bad thing, since the three guys get picked up by three girls. The video shows great landscape, spliced with their own selfies, and the love story behind it. (The love story doesn't come off so well, since from both the video and the lyrics themselves know they're getting down only for tonight.)

The meaning of New Politic's Tonight You're Perfect starts off with ideals, but gets hung up on just thinking about "tonight." They mention the deep questions like "should I believe in the world?" "Should I believe in the rules?" "Don't know what to believe..." "Can I speak out my mind in these changing times?" Answers to these questions decide what life's lived for. New Politics doesn't give us their answers. Maybe they want us to discover our own answers. Maybe they don't have any for us... yet. The lyrics say they get caught up on "tonight... love only for the night." 
Long-term questions but short-term answers won't get anyone anywhere. Not even love.

Ask Yourself: Do I identify with the lines "speak out my mind in these changing times" or do I live "only for the night"?"

LYRICS:
Should I believe in the world, momma?
Should I give up and hide or should I stay and fight?
Should I believe in the rules, momma?
Tell me if I should run or learn to shoot a gun

I don't know what to believe, momma
Yeah, I'm down on my knees,
I'm begging please
Help me back on my feet, momma
'Cause I need someone to believe, believe, believe in

Tonight you're perfect
I wanna fall in love with the stars in your eyes
Tonight you're perfect
I wanna fall in love but only for the night
(Tonight you're perfect)
(Tonight you're perfect)
Only for the night
(Tonight you're perfect)
(Tonight you're perfect)
I feel perfect too!

You won't believe what I've seen, momma
There's a fire inside, there's a storm on the rise
It's in the air that we breathe, momma
Can I speak out my mind in these changing times?

Give me a reason to be, momma
'Cause I'm down on my knees,
I'm begging please
Help me back on my feet, momma
'Cause I need someone to believe, believe, believe in

Tonight you're perfect
I wanna fall in love with the stars in your eyes
Tonight you're perfect
I wanna fall in love but only for the night
(Tonight you're perfect)
(Tonight you're perfect)
Only for the night
(Tonight you're perfect)
(Tonight you're perfect)
I feel perfect too!

Only for the night
Only for the night
Only for the night

Tonight you're perfect,
I wanna fall in love with the stars in your eyes
Tonight you're perfect
I wanna fall in love but only for the night
