(Please Not) One More Time

This song is by Roger McGuinn and appears on the album Peace on You (1974).

When the sun pours down like honey
From the sweet California sky
Then the haze and the smog they
Both are soon forgotten
And it's the very same way with love
Now when you hurt from an old affair
Then the pain will disappear when
A new love's gotten
Don't ask me why I do it
'Cause you'll only say I knew it
And I'm played just like a fool every time
Oh but if you know the answer
Then I won't even ask her
'Cause it's hard enough for me to
Go down one more time
When it's 10 a.m. in Doraville
It's only 7 a.m. in L.A.
She said I didn't want to wake you up
Just to warn you
So the taillights soon will flicker
And the Georgia sun will rise
But I'll be still here in the dark
In California
Oh I'm a two-time loser
And that could sober up any boozer
Or at the very least make him looser
In his prime
And I never even called her
So why does everyone say I balled her
'Cause I don't think I have the energy
To go down one more time
Please don't say that it's magic
Cause it always ends up tragic
The act of love so sweet can soon
Become a crime
No and please don't make me taste it
Though it seems such a shame to waste it
I don't think I have the energy
To go down one more time
One more time, one more time
One more time
