I don’t want to see your open wounds
I know that I could never get close to you
I don’t wanna get inside
I don’t wanna change your mind
I just wanna hear you cry out loud again

How am I supposed to fall asleep?
It’s the only kind of love you cannot keep.
I don’t wanna kiss your face
I don’t wanna make you stay
I just wanna hear you say goodnight again

Oh now baby
Four minutes ago you were in my arms
Oh now baby
Four minutes ago you were in my arms
And now you’re already gone, you’re already gone

Oh, the lights of the city will light your skin
And I’m trying real hard not to let you in
Oh, but anyone can tell
Baby, I cant help myself
Oh, there’s nobodyelse to love tonight

Oh now baby
Four minutes ago you were in my arms
Oh now baby
Four minutes ago you were in my arms
And now you’re already gone, you’re already gone

    General CommentThis song is obviously about a guy seeking a one night stand. He doesn't want anything long term or committed (I don't wanna make you stay, I just wanna hear you say goodnight again") he only wants her because "There's nobody else to love tonight."
