You say you want to make it work with her
You say you want to make something good
The sparks fly
I know I should know better
But in you eyes I can see for a million years

And it?s all I can do to not take your hand
?Cause I would love you
better than she can
But I?m passing through
I am just a guest
And for tonight, I am second best

You whisper, you don?t know what you want
You waver, hovering over me
When I have never
wanted someone so much
So it?s the wanting that?s making it hard to be

...she?s here to stay..

So a few honest moments
in the still of the night
are all I can hope for
No, I don?t have the right
to dream
I do dream

...?cause I would love you
better than anyone can...

...just one, just one, just one night...
