The All-American Rejects - It Ends Tonight

Your subtleties
They strangle me
I can’t explain myself at all.
And all the wants
And all the needs
All I don’t want to need at all.

The walls start breathing
My mind s unweaving
Maybe it’s best you leave me alone.
A weight is lifted
On this evening
I give the final blow.

When darkness turns to light,
It ends tonight
It ends tonight.

A falling star
Least I fall alone.
I can’t explain what you can’t explain.
You re finding things that you didn’t know
I look at you with such disdain

The walls start breathing
My mind s unweaving
Maybe it’s best you leave me alone.
A weight is lifted
On this evening
I give the final blow.

[Chorus]
When darkness turns to light
It ends tonight,
It ends tonight.
Just a little insight won t make this right
It’s too late to fight
It ends tonight,
It ends tonight.

Now I’m on my own side
It’s better than being on your side
It’s my fault when your blind
It’s better that I see it through your eyes

All these thoughts locked inside
Now you’re the first to know

[Chorus x2]

Released September 25, 2006. "It Ends Tonight" is the third single taken from The All-American Rejects' second studio album Move Along. Contrary to their usual style, the song is a ballad. It also utilizes a string section, with an arrangement by composer Deborah Lurie. During a July 2006 airing of the PBS series Soundstage, the group revealed that the song was not written about a girl, but rather "a dude". The single peaked at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100, making "It Ends Tonight" the band's third top 20 hit. Due to the popularity of the song in the United States, sales for Move Along started to increase. It skyrocketed the album from #88 to #47 in the week of November 8th, 2006. "It Ends Tonight" was the band's highest charting single in the U.S. until early 2009, when their song "Gives You Hell" reached #4 on the Hot 100. The video premiered in the United States on August 28, 2006 on TRL. * This song was feautured on the trailer for the episode "Some You Give Away" (4.09) of One Tree Hill. * This song was featured on All My Children on February 6, 2007. * This song was featured on Smallville in the season 6 episode "Wither". It was also featured on the trailer for the episode. * Portions of the song were featured in promotional advertisements for the Sci Fi Channel's Battlestar Galactica season 3 episode "Rapture". * The song has surprisingly hit on 'The List with Matty and Renee' on Australia radio, a year after the album Move Along was actually released. * The song was also featured on Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County. * Film composer Deborah Lurie wrote the string arrangements used in the song. * The song was used during the 2007 NBA Finals in a pre-game trailer for Game 4 of the San Antonio Spurs against the Cleveland Cavaliers (The Spurs would later win the game, thus sweeping the series to win their fourth NBA World Championship in 9 seasons). * The song was used at the end of the Winter X Games * The song was used in the trailer for 2nd last episode of the Singaporean Mediacorp drama Metamorphosis * The song was featured on the music video game Karaoke Revolution Presents: American Idol Encore. * Tyson Ritter revealed at a concert that this song is for their friend who broke up with her boyfriend, so it is about a 'dude' rather than a girl. The music video was directed by Wayne Isham. In the music video, Tyson Ritter is sitting at a table in front of a fireworks store. The band pulls up in a conversion van. Tyson goes inside and fills a shopping cart with fireworks as two female clerks watch him. One of the clerks is obviously watching him more closely, interested in Tyson. Tyson walks out as the band plays in the back of a truck stop. Chris lights a firework and Tyson joins in. In the end the night turns into day (relating to the line "When darkness turns to light - It ends tonight, it ends tonight") and the song ends.
