I was young
And I was a victim
Of her killer smile
Her love was cheap
And it was great for a little while
I had to leave
But she wanted me stay
And she ripped up my shirt
And left the marks of her disdain

I couldn't take it no more
I couldn't spend another night alone
I couldn't take it no more

[Chorus]
If this is where we ended up
Then I refuse to be so hard on myself this time
If everything I have is gone
Then what is wrong
In spending time with you

I'll keep you warm
You'll hold me tight
This might be our only night
I can't give up
No no no no, oh

I tried to reconcile
But it never made a difference
You could cut the atmosphere with a knife
It was so tense and cold
And every time I tried to get little closer to you
You got further and further away from me
Until you faded into the distance
Yes you did
There was nothing I could do

[Chorus]

I'll keep you warm
When you hold me tight
Cause this might be our only night
This might be the only night
I can't spend another night alone
If this is where we ended up
Then I refuse to be so hard on myself this time
If everything I have is gone
Then what is wrong
In spending time with you

[Chorus]

Keep me warm and I hold you tight
Cause this might be our only night
