Let me hold you tight
If only for one night
Let me keep you near
To ease away your fears
It would be so nice
If only for one night

I won't tell a soul
No one has to know
If you want to be
Totally discreet
I'll be at your side
If only for one night
Yeah, yeah
If only for one night

Your eyes say things
I never hear from you
And my knees
Are shaking too
But I'm willing
Willing to go through
I must be crazy
Standing in this place
And I'm feeling
No disgrace for asking

Let me hold you tight
If only for one night
One night, girl
Let me keep you near
Near to ease away
Your fears
It would be so nice
If only
For one night, night
Yeah, yeah
If only for one night

I tell you what I need
One night, one night
Whooo
That's all I need
Is one night
One night, one night
Oooh, oh
Baby
One night, one night
One night of your love
Of your love
Of your loving

I'm asking
Let me hold you tight
If only for one night
Let me keep you near
To ease away your fears
It would be so nice
If only for one night

    Every Luther Song for me has meaning. If it wans't for Oprah, I would have missed out on a great baladeer. My fiance is overseas fighting. I miss him so. Thought About You, I want the Night to Stay, Here & Now, If Only For One Night, Never Let You Go, So Amazing, I cry everytime I hear a Luther Song that reminds me of him.
