"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 Commentthis is one of my favorite songs. every echo, every pause, every inflection, every reverb is simply perfectly used. both parties sound so hollow but so pained. the little rockout after "you'll never touch him again" is an effective use of shock to get a reaction, musically, lyrically and emotionally.

    if it's about lovers mutually scorned, breakup sex, or a one-night stand between people who have slept together/know each other - all meanings would fit, frankly - it almost doesn't matter, because the emotions at work here are so primally human. "take off that dress/you won't freeze" particularly effects me because he's trying to care but he wants her at the same time. by the end of the song, you end up sympathizing and yet not liking both people, and that's brilliant.
