"One Night Love Affair" as written by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance....
You're the silent type 
And you caught my eye 
But I never thought that I'd be touchin' you 
How was I to know 
I'd let my feelings go 
And that I'd be yours before the night was through 

Yeah, one night love affair 
Tryin' to make like we don't care 
We were both reachin' out for somethin' 

Oh, one night love affair 
Pretendin' it ain't there 
Oh, and now we're left with nothin' 

When the mornin' breaks 
We go our separate ways 
If the night was made for love it ain't for keeps 

But I lose control 
As I watch you go 
All my senses say I'm in this much too deep 
Now you're outta reach 

One night love affair 
Tryin' to make like we don't care 
We were both reachin' out for somethin', yeah, yeah

One night love affair 
Pretendin' we don't care 
Oh, and now we're left with nothin' 

Oh, one night love affair 
Tryin' to make like we don't care 
We were both reachin' out for somethin', yeah, yeah

One night love affair 
Sometimes life ain't fair 
Oh, and now we're left with nothin', nothin', yeah, yeah

One night, one night
One night, one night
One night
One night, one night love affair, yeah
Whoo
One night love affair
Yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah
It's just a one night love affair
It's only a love affair
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

    General CommentThis is a really catchy song, and im pretty sure its about being infatuated with a woman you just meet and then basically having a one night stand with her. Very catchy and good song, just more proof that Bryan Adams kicks ass.

    General CommentAll I can think of when I hear this song is the beach party scene in the movie "Real Genius". Anyone remember that movie? lol I agree with 'the soul' when they said that Bryan Adams KICKS ASS!! I missed the opportunity to see him (and Def Leppard) here a couple weeks ago but i'm sure he/they rocked!
