She's doesn't deserve to be in a place like this
All alone
She's underage and so very very brave
A fake ID and her credibility
She sits at the bar
The gents are gonna try so hard

He said it was a one night stand
But the alcohol didn't let her understand
Yeah, he said it was a one night stand
A one night stand

So what made you think
That he couldn't find a door in the morning
When he found that bed so easily
In the dark?
So what made you think
That he couldn't find a door in the morning?
When he found that bed so easily
In the dark?

So the bartender who tends to pretend that he's concerned
Says, "Girlie girlie, you're at your best (you're at your best) when you're sober"
And she slurs, "No no, just one more"
And one turns into four
The fourth drink instinct is taking over
And the gentleman is leading her towards the door

So what made you think
That he couldn't find a door in the morning
When he found that bed so easily
In the dark?

So what made you think
That he couldn't find a door in the morning?
When he found that bed so easily
In the dark?

She thought that she could buy happiness by
By the bottle
She thought that she could buy happiness by
By the bottle
She thought that she could buy happiness by
By the bottle

So what made you think
That he couldn't find a door in the morning
When he found that bed so easily
In the dark?

So what made you think
That he couldn't find a door in the morning
When he found that bed so easily
In the dark?

He said it was a one night stand
But the alcohol didn't let her understand
Yeah, he said it was a one night stand
A one night stand

    its about an underage girl drinking, and thinking that this guy she meets at the bar wants more from her than a one night stand. and its saying that getting trashed isnt gonna make you happy or find you anything.

    About this girl.
    Who meets this guy.
    Who wants a one night stand.
    And she is so drunk.
    She doesn't get it.

    Also.
    Getting drunk.
    Doesn't solve anything.

    Kay.Thanks.Bye
    P.s. So the bartender who tends to pretend that he's concerned
    Says, "Girlie girlie, you're at your best when you're sober"
    And she slurs, "No no, just one more"
    And one turns into four
    ^^My fave bit :)
