"One Night Is Not Enough" as written by and Quinn/lightbody/mcclelland....
You left your door wide open
Couldn't help but walk in
It's the last place I should be
But I'm dying to see you
Have I held out for something
That is never going to happen?

It's not me that you love
You woke up cold this morning
Shied away from my touch
I would never mean to hurt you
Cause I love you so much
Was it always only one night
That you every wanted from me?

It's not me that you love

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful and bittersweet. It's about someone that feels this intense attraction for someone--and knows that they shouldn't because the other person will never return the feelings like they should--but they don't have the power to turn away. Something keeps pulling them back in and they cannot resist the need to be with the person. The person they love is in love with someone else and can't get past this other person long enough to realize what they have right in front of them--someone who is hopelessly waiting and wanting and yearning for them.

    General CommentI know, I didn't think it *could* get better. That solo is fantastic, so - as Aliel said - bittersweet.

    General Commenti think it's about likeing someone so much and for some reason you get to spend the night with them. they like you but it's not enough for them, one night is not enough for you, maybe it would of been better if you had never tasted what you can never have... their heart will never be yours.

    General CommentIt's almost like a holiday romance or something as well. I met this guy right at the end of term, now I'm leaving and the 'what could have beens' are flying around! This song came on and just seemed to fit - weird

    General CommentSeems to be about a one-night-stand gone bad or something. For anyone who saw the Grey's Anatomy episode when Meredith and George finally got together... it's a bit like that, although they never reached the 'you woke up cold this morning' bit. But yeah, it's like he slept with someone who he thought meant it, but the next morning the buzz wore off and she realized abruptly what had occured. Favorite song off 'When It's All Over We Still Have To Clear Up'...
