I'm pretty sure that this is my favorite TobyMac album. The musical diversity/variety makes the album even better and shows you how flexible TobyMac is with switching between genres.
'Tonight' has an awesome message to it. 'Tonight' reminds me of my regional youth retreat in the winter and camp in summer with these lyrics:
I wanna feel a new day/[There's gotta be more than this]/I wanna live a new way/[There's gotta be more]/I wanna feel a new day/[There's gotta be more]/I wanna live a new way/[There's just gotta be more]
Right here, right now/Under the stars, I promise you my heart/Cause it starts tonight!
We wanna rise,/We wanna touch the other side/[It starts tonight!]/We wanna soar/We wanna reach right out for more
That is the cry of the teens hearts. Most of them are already saved, and they just know that 'there's gotta be more' to the Christian walk than what they're living they want to feel something new in their walk. The ones that aren't saved know there's more to life than just existing and they want to know what else there is to life.
Then the chorus talks about the relationship/re-commitment with God starting, and how they just want more of God and they want to fly away from their problems into God comforting arms.
At least that's how I see the song.
'Hold On' is my personal favorite on the album because it reminds me that God is in control of what I'm going through and that he's always there to help me even when I feel like he's not. It also reminds me to thank God for being there with me through the storms in my life.
