"Las Vegas Nights" as written by Jim Sonefeld, Mark Bryan, Dean Felber and Darius Rucker....
Las Vegas nights
Have been calling
But I wait to see her float down stairs

There she stands with her eyes full and yearning
I look
And I know gotta be there

Is there another chance
To bring her closer
Make her feel I know we could be happy again

Is there another chance
To bring her flowers
So she will only whisper my name

A chance to make things right for her
And make my lies seem true
I'm begging Do

Don't go down to the station
Somehow we won't live that long
Don't go now, desert flower
Cause you just won't bloom
And your memories made need more room

See that mirror there
Will she look inside
To see the one I fear standing alone

And on my phonograph
Will she put them in
The songs that only remind her of me

A chance to make things right for her
And make my life seem true
I'm begging Do

Don't go down to the station
Somehow we won't live that long
Don't go now, desert flower
Cause you just won't bloom
And your memories made need more room

I step outside The Joint
To clouds of guilt and fear
And there are shades of red dancing in view

Las Vegas nights
Make me wonder
How much longer I will be a fool

A chance to make things right for her
Make my lies seem true
I'm begging Do

Don't go down to the station
Somehow we won't live that long
Don't go now, desert flower
Cause you just won't bloom
And your memories made need more room

    Song MeaningI just finished doing a ballet with the members of the band so I can tell you exactly what this song is about...
    Darius was in Vegas and he saw this girl "float down the stairs"; she had beautiful green eyes, straight brown hair, & her name was Dorrinda I think. They had a very passionate 6-month relationship, but they couldn't manage to make it work b/c he was always on the road.
    Incidentally my roomate played that part & we called her "Dirty Dorrinda". :)
