One Night Stand
I see the dark side of the dance floor tonight
It looks like an abyss with disco lights
A sea of bodies losing all sense of function
To the sounds of groovy beats and cosmic rhythms.
You’re standing there like you are waiting for me
A sweet little devil dress- tight black.
Diamond heels and ruby red lipstick
You are the type of trouble I am looking for.
This dance floor is bringing us together
As we move closer to each other
You touch your tongue to your lips
Oh, I have been waiting for this.
My tongue is low on self-esteem
But your lips are giving it a confidence boost.
My feet have no idea of pulse
But your body is keeping them in tempo.
Dancing and swinging to the music
Our bodies fit together perfectly like a puzzle
As I steal your breath with my hands on your hips
And your sly hand slides slowly from my face to my neck.
You have your eyes to the door
That means you’re waiting to leave
I flash you the keys
That means you’re leaving with me.
In the lion’s den of late night romance
We slip away onto a twin mattress
Next to a pile of laundry and a pillow of books
Such a fairy tale ending, right?
The best kind of love
Is the kind that doesn’t leave anything behind
Riding on a feeling that only lasts for the night
But something awful happens in the morning
You disappear out of thin air without a trace
Leaving me alone with a bad heartache
Only for me to realize that
Loneliness is only formidable when you know it is indefinite.
