"Spend The Night" as written by and Adam/warfield Bravin....
It's getting late and we're both tired
Driving the awkward drive
Paying half attention as you're pointing the way
But our thoughts are racing double the time

You told me your stories, I told you mine
But there's so much we neglected to say
Driving back home I had to turn right around
There was something that I needed to ask you

Why can't I just spend the night?
It's cold outside and there's no place else I can go
And it feels so right
Why can't I just spend the night?
We'll keep our clothes on and we'll leave on the lights
Only if you like

Anticipation taking hold and second thoughts will never get you the cure
Though it had occurred to me that this might go bad
The obsession got me stuck to the plan
I ran up the steps as my heart pumped fast
Then I knocked perhaps a bit too light
And she opened up the door wearing only her coat
And the smile that said "this better be worth it"

Why can't I just spend the night?
It's cold outside and there's no place else I can go
And it feels so right
Why can't I just spend the night?
We'll keep our clothes on and we'll leave on the lights
Only if you like

    General CommentThat's because She Wants Revenge are influenced by New Order, much more New Order than JD, but the public thinks what they want because of Interpol.

    This is pretty darkwave too, was my most listened to track before This is Forever was released

    General Commentthis is in with the story of the album :/
    he loves her, she's not sure
    maybe he's older or there's another reason why they shouldn't be together
    but she's uneasy, but she stays with him for sex.
