"One More Night" as written by and Phil Collins....
One more night
One more night
I've been trying ooh so long to let you know
Let you know how I feel
And if I stumble if I fall, just help me back
So I can make you see

Please give me one more night
Give me one more night
One more night 'cause I can't wait forever
Give me just one more night, oh just one more night
Oh one more night 'cause I can't wait forever

I've been sitting here so long
Wasting time, just staring at the phone
And I was wondering should I call you
Then I thought maybe you're not alone

Please give me one more night, give me just one more night
Oh one more night, 'cause I can't wait forever
Please give me one more night, oh just one more night
Oh one more night, 'cause I can't wait forever
Give me one more night, give me just one more night
Oh one more night, 'cause I can't wait forever

Like a river to the sea
I will always be with you
And if you sail away
I will follow you

Give me one more night, give me just one more night
Oh one more night, 'cause I can't wait forever
I know there'll never be a time you'll ever feel the same
And I know it's only words
But if you change your mind you know that I'll be here
And maybe we both can learn

Give me just one more night, give me just one more night
Oh one more night, 'cause I can't wait forever
Give me just one more night, give me just one more night
Oh one more night, 'cause I can't wait forever

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

    General CommentThis is a a great one. It is about loving someone very much, but you have been holding yourself back from telling them. And then all of the sudden you freak out;this person might actually not feel the same; this person might be with someone else. And then in an act of desperation you want one more chance to say what you have to say, but deep down you know that the other is at another place completely. BUt hey, do we ever think logically, nope, we can't.

    General CommentFortunately, I realized the aforementioned girl wasn't right for me. Now I'm pursuing someone else and this song still fits.

    General Commentto me, this song is about holding yourself back from someone you love. trying to tell them how you feel. you need them to help you love. but you feel them slipping away because of your mistakes, asking just for one more chance to show them how much they matter. its about in all relationships when you protect yourself from pain so much you end up pushing each other further away. worrying how the other will react from a call for example. its about the final show of love, in one more night. i love it

    General CommentSong seems to be about a guy who pretty much blows it with someone he really loves. He never had a chance to tell her so. Now it seems too late. She has slipped away, leaving the guy nothing left to do but plead for one more chance to express how he feels.

    General CommentI used to slow dance to this song in front of my dad's old stereo when I was about 3 years old. (I was an eccentric kid!) I'm now 20 years old and it's funny how much this song speaks to me because there is/was a woman in my life that I don't think I can ever stop loving and it took me 4 years to tell her. Now, just like the song says, I need another chance to prove to her that I'm a good guy even though she basically disowned me earlier this year for the stupid mistakes I had made that hurt her, like being overprotective and negative. I wish she would talk to me again.
