I lie awake and wait for sunrise
There'll be no sleep tonight
Surrounded by your sweetness
And dizzy from your smile
Only hours are between us
I guess I'll be here for a while

Pre-Chorus:
'Cause I hope for you hopelessly
And hold on to the memory
Of you and I and the starlit sky

Chorus:
We walked the streets from nine 'til midnight
For a moment I just left it all behind
We walked the streets from nine 'til midnight
I'd give anything to feel it one more time
One more time

I blinked and it was over
I wish I'd never said goodbye

Repeat Pre-Chorus and Chorus

Yeah...

I can't save this
Am I faithless?
I can't save this
Am I faithless?

I hope for me hopelessly
And hope that someday there will be
A you and I and a starlit sky

Repeat Chorus

Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la
Sha-la-la-la
One more time
Sha-la-la-la
One more time with you
(From nine 'til midnight) (Repeat this last part 4x)

    General Commentthis song is too good to not have any comments...

    I don't think there's really any secret to the meaning. This completely encapsulates the way I feel about one of my past relationships.

    I'd give anything to feel it one more time.
