​One Short Night

This song is by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals and appears on the album Grace Potter and the Nocturnals (2010).

Original video
One short night with a stranger
One full moon over my head
One false move and is over
So I always think of what we said, my baby

Uh, yeah

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 din
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'm tryin' to hide
I can feel your heart beating
Closer than the poison of my pride

Caught up in a moment
I thought I 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'm tryin' 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
