Year Three, Week Twenty-Nine: “Just One Night”

Lyrics:

I threw rocks at her window
till she looked down on me
with my heart in my hands
and down on my knees
I asked for just one night
just one night

Down the red clay road
where we once played
with our heads in the clouds
and feet in the shade
Give me just one more night
just one night

I promise to love you
till the day you die
And nothing will change that
if there are stars in the sky
I promise to promise
to make it all right
I can do it all
if you’ll give me just one night

She asked me what are you doing
just go back to bed
I’m getting married tomorrow
and you’re already wed
Can’t give you just one night
just one night

I said it’s never too later
to turn it around
when the sting of a bullet
put me on the ground
I wanted just one night
just one night

I promise to love you
till the day you die
And nothing will change that
if there are stars in the sky
I promise to promise
to make it all right
I can do it all
if you’ll give me just one night

I didn’t see it coming
but I heard how she screamed
when she saw my wife
taking aim with her gun
I can hear my blood humming
This is not how I dreamed
that the end of my life
would finally come

I saw lights flashing
as I waited for death
I prayed to the lord
with my very last breath
Give me just one night
just one night

The sky was black
and hot to the touch
I died for the crime
of asking too much
I asked for just one night
just one night

I promise to love you
till the day you die
And nothing will change that
if there are stars in the sky
I promise to promise
to make it all right
I can do it all
if you’ll give me just one night
