Grace Potter & The Nocturnals - One Short Night Lyrics

Lyrics

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

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
