one short night lyrics – grace potter and the nocturnals

“one short night”

one short night with a stranger
one full moon over my head
one false move and it’s over
so i always think of what we said, my baby

strange how heavy my heart is
strange how dark it is tonight
strange the way this all started
i guess i’m losing track of wrong and right

and as the lights go dim
i lie down with him
and as i’m lying there
i can only smell your hair

it’s like your across the hall
with your ear glued to the wall
and as i move to let him in i can
feel you crawl under my skin

and i can feel you from the inside
prowling like a devil that i try to hide
i can feel your heart beating
closer than the poison of my pride

caught up in a moment
i thought i’d feel no shame because i
didn’t have tell you lies
when the daylight came but now
down goes that silver tear
down goes my golden year
down we go in a water slide
that’s made up of the tears i’ve cried

and i can feel you from the inside
prowling like a devil that i try to hide
i can feel your heart beating
closer than the poison of my pride

i can feel you, you’re touching me
i look at him but it’s you i see, baby
i can feel your heart beating
closer than the poison of my pride

one short night
one short night
