"One More Night" as written by and Phil Collins....
Try as he might
He's unable to speak
He grabs her by the hair
He strokes her on the cheek

The bed is un-made
Like everything is
Dark little heaven
At the top of the stairs

Take me like that
Ruin it all
Then build it again
By the light in the hall

He drops to his knees
Says please my love, please
I'll kill who you hate
Take off that dress, you won't freeze

One more night, that was a good one
One more night, I dreamed it was good one (one more)
One more night, that was a good one
One more night, the end should be a good one
A good one

He starts with her back
Cause that's what he sees
When she's breaking his heart
She still fucks like a tease

Release to the sky
Look him straight in the eye
And tell him right now
That you wish he would die

You'll never touch him again
So get what you can
Bleeding him empty
Just because he's a man

So good when it ends
They'll never be friends
One more night
That's all they can spend is

One more night, that was a good one
One more night, I dreamed it was good one (one more)
One more night, that was a good one
One more night, the end should be a good one
A good one

    General Commentamazing song first of all ! wow...anyways, my take on it is that it is about two people having sex after they have broken up.
    "One more night, that was a good one"- sarcastically as if they both know that when they say that, it is not the truth.
    "The bed is un-made, like everything is"- shows that everything is not decided upon whether or not they are dating or just having sex for the hell of it.
    "He starts with her back, cause thats what he sees"-meaning she has her back turned to him because she is not fully into the sex because she knows it is wrong and won't fix anything.
    "dark little heaven at the top of the stairs
    take me like that, ruin it all
    then build it again, by the light in the hall"- meaning that when they go into the bedroom everything is ruined because in a sense it is meaningless sex because they are not dating but he will fix everything outside of the bedroom because he will treat her well.
    "you'll never touch him again, so get what you can"- she sees it as a last opportunity to be with him so she will settle with just having sex with him in the hopes of getting him back

    ..anyways, thats what I got out of the song! Truly a beautiful song.
