:: One Night Only ::

You want all my love and my devotion
You want my loving soul right on the line
I had no doubt that I could love you forever
The only trouble is I really don't have the time

I've got one night only
One night only
That's all I have to spare
One night only
Let's not pretend you care

I've got one night only
One night only
Come on, we better come on
One night only
We only have 'til dawn
(We only have 'til dawn)
We only have 'til dawn
(We only have 'til dawn!)
One night only
One night only


A few things last forever.
Most things don't.
I recall the moment I stood on the stage, basked
In the many hundred lights. And then this song; I realised
That I had one night only, that one night only,
And that one night will only last that night, and will
Never happen again.
That one night alludes to the many opportunities that
Manifest: of youth, of happiness, of intimacy, of the chance
To seize that moment and do exactly what one wants to do.
For that moment will never come this way again.

We only have till dawn. So apt.
