    The ehMTee Show is a homegrown, cross-platform variety program of songs and light comedy, featuring Michael Thorner and the Must We Wait Forever Band, singer/songwriter and Tomlab/Blocks Recording Club/Tin Angel recording artist Mantler (AKA Marker Starling), as well as Gemini-award winning writer Paul Bellini (The Hour Has 22 Minutes, Kids In The Hall, FAB Magazine) and comedian Scott Thompson (Kids In The Hall, The Larry Sanders Show, Hannibal), performing together for the first time in 12 years!

    In this excerpt, I play an original song, I Don't Wanna Go Outside Tonight, with the help of Warren Phillips on guitar.

    The entire show is in the midst of being edited and remixed for release. Stay tuned!

    This show was presented as part of the Home Theater Festival:

    I DON'T WANNA GO OUTSIDE TONIGHT
    © 2011 Must We Wait Forever Music

    I DON'T WANNA GO OUTSIDE TONIGHT, NO
    I DON'T WANNA GO OUTSIDE TONIGHT
    LET'S JUST STAY IN OUR BED
    AND FLOAT AWAY IN THE NIGHT
    JUST STAY EVERYTHING WILL BE ALRIGHT

    COME BACK TO BED DARLIN'
    COME REST YOUR HEAD
    AND WE'LL PLAN
    PLAN FOR OUR DAY TOMORROW
    NO REST FOR THE WEARY
    WE'LL BORROW THE CAR
    AND GO DRIVING NEAR AND FAR
    BUT FOR NOW LET'S STAY WHERE WE ARE
    THE CLOUDS ARE FORMING OUTSIDE
    IT DOESN'T LOOK INVITING

    I DON'T WANNA GO OUTSIDE TONIGHT, NO
    I DON'T WANNA GO OUTSIDE TONIGHT
    LET'S JUST STAY IN OUR BED
    AND RIDE AWAY IN THE NIGHT
    RIGHT HERE EVERYTHING WILL BE ALRIGHT

    THIS MOMENT IS OURS
    LET'S NOT SPOIL THINGS LET THE STARS
    FILL THE VOID IN OUR RESERVOIRS
    CLOUDS ARE FORMING OUTSIDE
    LET'S KEEP OUR LOVE EXCITING

    I DON'T WANNA GO OUTSIDE TONIGHT, NO
    I DON'T WANNA GO OUTSIDE TONIGHT
    LET'S JUST REST FROM OUR DAY
    AND WE'LL JUST SPOON IN THE NIGHT
    IN DREAMS EVERYTHING WILL BE ALRIGHT

    POINT EDWARD FAIR

    © 2016 Must We Wait 4ever Music

    POINT EDWARD FAIR
    HIGH IN THE AIR
    STARLIGHT MEMORIES THERE

    EVERY YEAR IN SUMMER
    THE CARNIVAL CAME TO TOWN
    FERRIS WHEEL WAS LIT UP
    YOU COULD SEE IT FOR MILES AROUND

    POINT EDWARD FAIR
    HIGH IN THE AIR
    MAGIC SPARKLED UP THERE

    TWO BY TWO WE GOT IN
    IN A POD OF OUR VERY OWN
    TWELVE YEARS OLD AND CLIMBING
    RISING UP TO THE GREAT UNKNOWN

    POINT EDWARD FAIR
    HIGH IN THE AIR
    NIGHT LIGHTS TWINKLE UP THERE

    RISING FAST MY HEART BEAT
    NEON SHINING IN BOTH OUR EYES
    LEANING IN TO STAY WARM
    HOLDING HANDS THEN I REALIZE

    POINT EDWARD FAIR
    HIGH IN THE AIR
    FIRST LOVE CAME TO ME THERE

    WELL IT MIGHT ALL END
    by Michael Thorner
    © 2012 Must We Wait Forever Music

    WELL IT MIGHT ALL END
    BUT WE JUST GOT TO KEEP HOPING
    WELL IT MIGHT ALL END
    BUT WE JUST GOT TO KEEP COPING
    2012'S GONE BY
    WILL THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT KEEP TUMBLING
    2012'S GONE BY
    WILL OUR CIVILIZATION KEEP CRUMBLING

    AND IT MIGHT NOT COME
    IT MIGHT ALL BE JUST A MYTH NOW
    VERY REAL FOR SOME
    IF WE DON'T TAKE CARE OF THINGS NOW
    IF WE ALL DECIDE
    TO SHOW MERCY FOR CHILDREN AND THOSE DEPRIVED
    IF WE'RE UNIFIED
    SHARING LOVE IN RENEWABLE OVERDRIVE

    WE'LL GET BY! WE'LL GET BY!

    WELL IT MIGHT ALL END
    BUT IN THE MEANTIME HOLD STEADY
    'CAUSE IT ALL DEPENDS
    ON ALL OF US BEING READY
    2012'S GONE BY (CHANGE WITHIN OR DIE)
    ALL TOGETHER AS ONE WE WILL ALL SURVIVE
    SHARE THE LOVE AND THRIVE
    AIN'T NO WAY WE CAN'T SAY WE ARE NOT ALIVE

    WE'RE ALIVE! WE'LL SURVIVE!
