He'll find her long hair on the pillow
and she'll find herself unable to sleep at night.
They'll make their way through the day-to-day and try to take it slow,
try to let it go.

She'll swear it was just a fling;
it didn't mean a thing,
sometimes we all get a little wild.
And he'll come in late from his coffee break,
trying to shake the tears
he's been hiding like a child.
She'll pass by, he'll catch her eye and time will slow,
and he'll turn to go.

well, it was just one night
it was only one dance
like a scene from a movie
their whirlwind romance
maybe unwise,
looking back with clear eyes
and that's just the way love, sometimes, wants to go
and with a hunger like that
they couldn't have taken it slow

He'll do the thing where he dials every digit but the last one
and hangs up fast
when he starts to lose his nerve.
And she'll drive the wrong way down a oneway street
and look up saying his name
just in time to swerve.

And if anybody asks,
they'll both laugh and say, "nearly forgot about that."
She'll blulsh and he'll turn away
Is it over just like that?

oh, it was just one night
it was only one dance
like a scene from a movie
their whirlwind romance
maybe unwise, looking back with clear eyes
but that just the way love, sometimes, wants to go
and with a hunger like that, they couldn't have taken it slow
no they couldn't have taken it slow

it was just one night
it was only one dance
like a scene from a movie
their whirlwind romance
maybe unwise, looking back with clear eyes
but thats just the way love, sometimes, wants to go
and with a hunger like that, they couldn't have taken it slow.
