One More Night by Blue Rodeo (studio version with lyrics)

4,990 views 1 year ago
He came into the world with his eyes wide open
Knew what it was all about
He grew into a man that the sun just followed
Knew himself inside out
We'd watch him go to work each day
Come back underneath the moonlit night

We'd hear them laughing talking always
Safe behind the walls
Nobody knew too much about them
They never even answered calls
Well, his wife was small and pretty
Like a shell illuminated by the light

Well, I know there is a plan
But at least from where I stand
I would love to take the place of that man
For just one night

Sometimes situations seem
Too perfect to be true
People talk and shake their heads
The way that people do
You know that small towns show no mercy
And they see their envy in a different light

I woke up late to a big commotion
Wondering what it all was for
Voices screaming in the darkness
Fire and smoke next door
There was someone lying on the lawn
And someone trapped behind the firelight

What could we say
As we watched life slip away
There was nothing we could do to make it right
Not on that night

Leave me here, he said
Stretched out on the lawn
I don't think anybody's
Gonna miss me when I'm gone

Life is my enemy
It took my very best
Left me here to cast away
The shadows and sort through the mess
Struggle to get by with all my might
For one more night

We'd see him out walking in the streets
With nothing in his eyes
People would stop and say hello
He'd always act surprised
Well, he'd jump back kind of nervous
Like a boxer who'd rather walk away than fight

Just like autumn thunderstorms
We knew the day would come
When they talked about it later
No one even knew he had a gun
They found him with a picture
Of his wife beside him such a peaceful sight

And if God is looking down
On this little life we've found
I say you pushed that man until he couldn't fight
Not one more night

Leave me here
Stretched out on the lawn
I don't think anybody's
Gonna miss me when I'm gone

Life is my enemy
It took my very best
Left me here to cast away
The shadows and sort through the mess
Struggle to get by with all my might
For one more night Show less
