The fire flickers out, making movies on her skin
And in the embers she remembers all the places that she's been.
Four letter words fly from her mouth,
She thinks she's breaking ground,
Time takes its toll, she feels his soul
In everything around and I say:

The way that you feel now
It's cool as long as I know
The way it's gonna be.

Make it last for an hour
We'll never feel this way again.
Make it all that you want
And everything that I need.

The booze reaches her blood,
She forgets his name.
The wood has turned to coal
But our desire feeds the flame.
Will we surrender to the night?
Or will our conscience win the fight?
She won't regress, but can't confess
That everything's alright and I say:

The way that you feel now
It's cool as long as I know
The way it's gonna be
It's gonna take more
Where we're gonna go....

Make it last for an hour
We'll never feel this way again.
Make it all that you want
And everything that I need.
Make it last, make it last,
Because you're not making me any promises.
Make it last, make it last,
Make the best of what you see.

Will you give to me what I needed to see,
You can’t feed my imagination.
You give to me what I needed to see, it’s a twisted fascination
It feels so good to make it through the cold
But you know that he’ll
Close all the doors just close ‘em all
For the rest of time.

    General Commentyet another good one from "little thoughts", the first two lines are awesome, good mental images through the lyrics.
    this song is obviously about some sort of a one night stand, possibly where one person (the girl) is cheating on her boyfriend/husband with some other guy maybe for revenge.
    this song reminds me of Dave matthews Band's "Say goodbye" which is another one night stand type deal song.
