"One Life Stand" as written by and Joseph/taylor Goddard....
Tell me where you've been to
Nowhere that you shouldn't do
Tell me what you're good for
I can tell you something too
Where have you been staying?
Tell me what you're playing
Hope it's not my conscience
But it keeps complaining

Didn't meet you in an alley
The cats they weren't complaining
I met you in the daylight
Our visions misbehaving
I offer you my temper
With the hope that you would tame me
We built ourselves a shelter
You will always be my baby

Feeling, keep on feeling, keep on feeling

I only wanna be your one life stand (Keep on feeling)
Tell me do you stand by your man? (Keep on feeling)
I only wanna be your one life stand (Keep on feeling)
Tell me do you stand by your man? (Keep on feeling)

Wishes keep remaining
Nothing worth containing
A balloon with air escaping
Is nothing but a plaything
Moments keep us guessing
And lead us from temptation
But better to embrace them
And measure our elation

I only wanna be your one life stand (Keep on feeling)
Tell me do you stand by your man? (Keep on feeling)
I only wanna be your one life stand (Keep on feeling)
Tell me do you stand by your man? (Keep on feeling)
(Could this be, could this be?)
I only wanna be your one life stand (Keep on feeling)
(Could this be, could this be?)
Tell me do you stand by your man? (Keep on feeling)
(Could this be, could this be?)
I only wanna be your one life stand (Keep on feeling)
(Could this be, could this be?)
Tell me do you stand by your man? (Keep on feeling)

    General CommentNot sure he's saying "your whole man" so much as it sounds like he's just dragging the word your out, making the lyrics "tell me do you stand by your man".

    Lyric CorrectionFirst of all, the title is One LIFE Stand.

    - I think it should be "conscience" instead of "conscious"

    - "a baloon where they're escapin'" should be "a balloon with air escaping"

    - As phillr already said, it's not "your whole man", but "your man"

    - And I always thought he said "keep on dreaming", but that could be wrong.

    General CommentThis thread should be merged with 'One Life Stand' - the correct song title, as noted by the users above.

    I agree with SirSpandex's lyrics suggestions. 'Conscience' is a better fit.

    Lyric CorrectionTell me where you’ve been to
    Nowhere that you shouldn’t do
    Tell me what you’re good for
    I can tell you something too
    Where have you been staying?
    Tell me what you’re playing
    Hope it’s not my conscience
    But it keeps complaining

    Didn’t meet you in an alley
    The cats they weren’t complaining
    I met you in the daylight
    Our visions misbehaving
    I offer you my temper
    With the hope that you would tame me
    We built ourselves a shelter
    You will always be my baby

    Feeling, keep on feeling, keep on feeling

    I only wanna be your one life stand (Keep on feeling)
    Tell me do you stand by your man? (Keep on feeling)
    I only wanna be your one life stand (Keep on feeling)
    Tell me do you stand by your man? (Keep on feeling)

    Wishes keep remaining
    Nothing worth containing
    A balloon with air is escaping
    Is nothing but a plaything
    Moments keep us guessing
    And lead us from temptation
    But better to embrace them
    And measure our elation

    I only wanna be your one life stand (Keep on feeling)
    Tell me do you stand by your man? (Keep on feeling)
    I only wanna be your one life stand (Keep on feeling)
    Tell me do you stand by your man? (Keep on feeling)
    (Could this be, could this be?)
    I only wanna be your one life stand (Keep on feeling)
    (Could this be, could this be?)
    Tell me do you stand by your man? (Keep on feeling)

    General CommentReally digging this song. I gave them a listen about a year ago and didn't think much of them. After listening to this and the rest of their stuff, I have to say that this is a pretty talented band.
