I'm gonna make you bend and break
(It sent you to me without wings)
Say your prayer, but let the good times roll
In case God doesn't show
(Let the good times roll, let the good times roll)
And I want these words to make things right
But it's the wrongs that make the words come to life
Who does he think he is?
If that's the worst you've got, better put your fingers back to the keys

One night and one more time
Thanks for the memories
Even though they weren't so great
He tastes like you only sweeter

One night yeah and one more time
Thanks for the memories
Thanks for the memories
See he tastes like you only sweeter

Been looking forward to the future
But my eyesight is going bad
In this crystal ball
It's always cloudy except for (except for)
When you look into the past (look into the past)
One night stand. (One night stand, off! )

One night and one more time
Thanks for the memories
Even though they weren't so great
He tastes like you only sweeter

One night yeah one more time
Thanks for the memories
Thanks for the memories
See, he tastes like you only sweeter

(They say) I only think in the form of crunching numbers
In hotel rooms, collecting page-six lovers
Get me out of my mind
Get you out of those clothes
I'm a line away
From getting you into the mood

One night and one more time
Thanks for the memories
Even though they weren't so great
He tastes like you only sweeter

One night yeah one more time
Thanks for the memories
Thanks for the memories
See, he tastes like you only sweeter

One night and one more time (one more night, one more time)
Thanks for the memories
Even though they weren't so great (even though they weren't so great)
He tastes like you only sweeter

One night yeah one more time (one more night, one more time)
Thanks for the memories (for the memories)
Thanks for the memories (for the memories)
See, he tastes like you only sweeter

    ...Am I the only one that thinks this is about a gay guy who realizes he's gay and leaves his girlfriend because he's unhappy? Just look at, "Thanks for the memories/Even though they weren't so great/He tastes like you only sweeter" It means that he wasn't happy, but he doesn't blame the girl, and that his new boyfriend is better because he actually loves him, hence the "sweeter" portion.

    some people are so lame... they don't understand the real menaing of the song... they just take it literally or as it is... they don't really think about the deeper meaning... the girl here is not a prosti or a hooter...
    the girl belongs to somebody else but she took a chance with a guy because they have their own business but it only happened once and after that, there's none left between them... what they had is just for a night because the girl is in a relationship with someone else... that's it...

    this song almost happen to me... i spent a night with a guy... talking about our feelings and what's the real score between us but good thing nothing happened to both of us because nothing is suppose to happen... whew... good thing we were able to resist temptation... unlike in the song... they got hooked up because they were not able to resist each other... but it's a sweet memory of mine BWAHAHAHA

    ummm...well i kinda thought of it as pete writing about him ending the relationship with his long childhood friend Christopher Gutierrez. apparently he had a one night stand with chris' gf kate. from my interrpretation he didnt really want to end it and when he looks into the past it just shows nothing but pain. and he cant seem to look into the futre because he is suffering too much. also the line "he tastes like you only sweeter" is from the gf's perspective, trying to explain why she did it. thanks for the memories even though they wern't so great. hahaha one of my fave songs of all time. so basically he's just thanking chris for all the good memories even though they all wern't so great
    hope this has helped XD
