Average White Band – If Love Only Lasts For One Night lyrics

Here we are,
You and I together for the first time
- though heaven knows, I've wanted you
And I guess you knew but we just
Never said,
Or never had the chance
And if love only lasts for one night
That would still be all right

If love only lasts for one night
We've got the morning to remember -
And decide
That if love only lasts for one night
We will have something
We always wanted to try

Holding you,
Seems like this is what the night
Was made for
- though who can say what lies ahead
Will this flame that flickers in
The darkness
Survive the light of day

And if love only lasts for one night, we
Got the morning, oh-ooh
If love only lasts for tonight
If love only lasts for on night, we
Will remember, oh yeah
If love only lasts for tonight
