The Only Night
by James Morrison



When 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 to stay
And she ripped up my shirt and left the marks of her disdain

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

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 and you'll hold me tight
This might be our only night, be our only night
Oh, 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 a 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

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 and you'll hold me tight
?Cause this might be our only night
This might be our only night
I can't spend another night alone

If this is where I 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

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

Keep me warm and I'll hold you tight
?Cause this might be our only night, be our only night
Let me hold you like I want to
We might never get a chance again
Oh, can't give up
