"Just for Tonight" as written by Brian Keith Thomas and Cynthia Weil....
It's hard to realize we said our last goodbyes
Where could the dream have gone to
Now I know there's no way that I can make you stay
No matter how I want to

We made some memories that my heart will always treasure
Before you close the door let's make one more

Baby, just for tonight let me give myself to you
And all I ask is just for tonight love me like you used to do
And I promise that I won't cry, I won't ask you why
I won't even try to change your feelings
If you just hold me tight, just once more, just for tonight

I thought the love we'd found
Was built on solid ground
And it would just grow stronger
Crazy as it may seem
I need to dream that dream
For just, just a little longer

So for the sake of all that magic we made together
Open your heart to mine just one more time

Baby, just for tonight let me give myself to you
And all I ask is just for tonight love me like you used to do
And I promise that I won't cry, I won't ask you why
I won't even try to change your feelings
If you just hold me tight, just once more, just for tonight

All I want is one more night
So why don't you come to me, let me dream
This night means everything to me
All I ask is for tonight
Baby just hold me tight
Come to me, let me dream
This night means everything to me

    General CommentLovely, sad song. She's acknowledging their relationship is over, and her heart's breaking because she was sure it would last. So she's asking for just one more night, to maintain the fantasy and the happy memories of what once was. She promises him that if he'll grant her that wish, she won't try to make him stay with her, as long as he allows her to imagine he still loves her for one more night.
