"One Lonely Night" as written by and Doughty....
You and your baby had some words today
'Till not another word was left to say
I see that grin, boy
Maybe you think you'll win, boy
Until the sun goes down and once again, boy

One lonely night
One lonely night
That's all it takes to completely break you

They say it's darkest right before the dawn
But, oh, those darkest hours can be so long
You're feeling strong, boy
Tellin' yourself she's wrong, boy
But how much longer can this night go on, boy?

One lonely night
One lonely night
That's all it takes to completely break you

One lonely night
One lonely night
That's all it takes to completely break you

Ooh, she's such a good find
Have you gone and lost your mind?
You should know she's one of a kind

Ooh, she's such a good find
Have you gone and lost your mind?
You should know she's one of a kind

Just one lonely night
One lonely night
That's all it takes to completely break you

    General Commenti think the 'boy' kevin is referring to is a boy who took his girl for granted and treated her bad and she confronted him bout it and left him and at first he didn't believe her, but hten all it took was one lovely night without her to realize how much he really loves her.

    General CommentThis is a classic "lost love" song. Not REO Speedwagon's best, but not a bad song either.

    General CommentWell, it seems that as of late, their original video to this song has been blocked in the US (on YouTube) due to copyright issues... HOWEVER, the original video shows a play on words, as the main character of the story (song) is a KNIGHT in shining armor and he is the "lonely knight"... it was quite cute how they did that and if you haven't seen it, I wished you could. It is my favorite REO Speedwagon song of all time.
