"One Of These Nights" as written by and Don Henley Glenn Frey....
One of these nights, one of these crazy old nights
We're gonna find out, pretty mama, what turns on your lights
The full moon is calling, the fever is high
And the wicked wind whispers and moans
You got your demons, you got your desires
Well, I got a few of my own

Oh, someone to be kind to in between the dark and the light
Oh, coming right behind you, swear I'm gonna find you, one of these nights

One of these dreams, one of these lost and lonely dreams, now
We're gonna find one, mm, one that really screams
I've been searching for the daughter of the devil himself
I've been searching for an angel in white
I've been waiting for a woman who's a little of both
And I can feel her but she's nowhere in sight

Oh, loneliness will blind you in between the wrong and the right
Oh, coming right behind you, swear I'm gonna find you, one of these nights

One of these nights oh, in between the dark and the light
Coming right behind you, swear I'm gonna find you
Get you, baby, one of these nights
One of these nights (oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh)
One of these nights (I can feel it, I can feel it)
One of these nights (coming right behind you, swear I'm gonna find you now)
One of these nights (and it's so dark, it's so dark and cold)
One of these nights (one of these crazy crazy crazy nights)
One of these nights (swear I'm gonna find you coming right behind you)
One of these nights (oh)
One of these nights (and I want to say ah)
One of these nights (one of these, one of these)
One of these nights (coming right behind you, swear I'm gonna find you)
One of these nights (One of these nights, one of these crazy nights)

    General CommentThe guy in the song is really horny and he's desperate for a slutty girl.

    "The full moon is calling, the fever is high and the wicked wind whispers and moans, you got your demons, you got desires, well, I got a few of my own"
    -He flat out states his eroticism.

    "We're gonna find out pretty mama what turns on your lights"
    -He's going to have sex with her in many different ways.

    "I've been searching for the daughter of the devil himself"
    -He wants a girl that will satisfy his dirty needs.

    "I've been searching for an angel in white, I've been waiting for a woman whose a little of both."
    -He wants a woman who acts as though she's innocent.

    Raunchy song, but I still like it. :)

    General CommentHe's describing his perfect girl (sometimes with contradictions = she's impossible to find/he'll be looking forever) and what he wants to do with her (KINKY!)

    General CommentHis eyes have been set upon this "pretty mama" for some time. He's closing in and the passion is about to explode.

    General CommentI like the guitar solo by Don Felder after the
    second verse - it sort of sounds like he's
    imitating a saxophone solo, and either way
    he's pretty much kicking some A-S-S

    General CommentFluggyinsanity has got it exactly right.

    He basically is describing exactly the kind of girl he wants at that exact moment

    General CommentHe wants to find the perfect someone out there.

    Captures the feel of how it can almost hurt.

    I think it also has a touch of Irony, because he is looking for this perfect girl out there but will never find her...maybe one of these nights...it will never come...but always seem so close...

    Good song.
