"If You Were Here Tonight" is a song written by Monte Moir and recorded by American recording artist Alexander O'Neal. It is the second single from the singer's self-titled debut solo album, Alexander O'Neal (1985). The song is notable for its non-rhyming lyrics. Following the moderately successful chart performances of the Alexander O'Neal single "Innocent", "If You Were Here Tonight" was released as the album's second single.
"If You Were Here Tonight" is a melancholy ballad about the break-up of a relationship. "If You Were Here Tonight" is one of three songs written by Monte Moir from the album, but it is the only one to be released as a single.
