I can see you from across the room
There's a tear in your storied eye
I was leaving but I'm coming back
Since your heart's in beat with mine
That mug didn't do you right
When he left in your best friend's ride
With the face of angel, girl
You deserve to be treated more than right

Realized I was passing through
From the moment I saw you
I was hypnotized
Couldn't wait to get you alone
So I could walk with you
So I could talk with you, oh

Go ahead and call your friends
I'll do whatever it takes
'Till I can make you trust
This party's going south
Let me know what's going on with us

Cause it's all right
There's nothing to stop us
If it feels right
Then everything's fine
For just one night
Baby you go back to your life
And I'll go back to mine

Last night I saw a photograph
From the party where we chilled
(Party where we chilled)
It was showing the two of us
And the Colt 45 we killed
(Colt 45 we killed)
Here I'm just writing you a letter
From the distant past
Enclosed is a photograph
To remind you of the time we had

Cause it's all right
There's nothing to stop us
If it feels right
Then everything's fine
For just one night
Baby, go back to your life
And I'll go back to mine

It's all right
(We can make it if we want to, baby)
It's all right
(I would love to show you the way)
For tonight
(I'm not talking about forever)
I'm just talking tonight

I can see you from across the room
There's a tear in your storied eye
I was leaving but I'm coming back
Since your heart's in beat with mine
That mark didn't do you right
When he left in your best friend's ride
With the face of angel, girl
You deserve to be treated more than right

Cause it's all right
There's nothing to stop us
If it feels right
Then everything's fine
For just one night
Baby go back to your life
And I'll go back to mine

Cause it's all right
There's nothing to stop us
If it feels right
Then everything's fine
For just one night
Then you go back to your life
And I'll go back to mine
(Don't you know, I'm goin back)
Then I'll go back to mine

    well i disagree with the person who thinks it's messed up. i mean doing it for one night...yeah, kinda wrong. but when you think about it, he just wants the girl to find out about how she feels about him. and if she doesn't feel that way, like the other other person says, she goes back to her life and he goes back to his.

    Songs Meanging:
    The singer, the guy, loves this girl. But she says she doesn't love him back. He wants this girl to try and love him back, give him a chance. The least they can do is try. Then, if she doesn't feel that way, she can go on with her life, and he'll go on with his.

    Great song recorded AND live.
    You guys just suck.

    this song explains how i feel right now.
    i've liked this boy i've known since i was two!
    i want to tell him how i feel, but things would get way too awkward, like he's been there for me through everything. next year i won't be going to the same school and i want to tell him before i leave?

    this song is explains it all for me. this guy and me used to be like best friends and we were really close. like, laugh at all eachothers jokes close even when you dont get them. and i ruined it all just because i started falling head over heels for him and all he wanted to be was friends. after that, everything was awkward. the last time we talked normally was when he asked me what i wished for, and i hid what i REALLY wanted and we sort of just talked seriously. and now he goes to a different school and it was his choice to leave. i see him a lot when my bus stops at his house to pick up his younger sister, but he ignores me and at first i didnt and i would wave and say hi and what not but now...bleh.
