Mahalia One Night Only

Funny, huh

Last night I’m sure you said I loved me

Woke up to unexpected space in my bed, man

You in my head, well

I don’t know what time you left

But I find it kind of rude that you can’t even call

I wish I done knew that before I let you have it all

Oh, funny, mmh

Now I know it was your plan all along

To leave before my alarm

But see

You were lucky to be

With somebody like me

Baby I’m a queen, yeah yeah

Oh, oh hell no

You just set the tone

You must have not known

That I’m not no

One night only, well

No I’m not, no I’m not no

One night only (Ooh)

Funny

You was the first one to say trust me

Whisper your thoughts, whether you scream them instead

Like the thoughts in my head

When I wake up in love, leave my heart in your bed

It was so scary

Wonderful queen, might just get married

Well I’ll be back, no, please don’t worry

It don’t mean you no harm

Left before the alarm

But I’m never too far

But see

You were lucky to be

With somebody like me

Baby I’m a queen, yeah yeah

Oh, oh hell no

You just set the tone

You must have not known

That I’m not no

One night only, well

No I’m not, no I’m not no

One night only

I don’t even know why you came over

You was drunk and I was sober

I didn’t even want you here

You asked for me, you called

And I picked up ’cause I’m a fool

But, that’s what you do to me

You make me weak, you make me free

You make me all the things that I always dreamed a man would make me be

And then you left

With no intention of returning

And now my heart is burning

Because after all this

After all that we have not and have been

I will still get you

Everybody like

Please don’t like him, he one nights ’em

He don’t wife ’em, he go bye-bye

We don’t talk much, we go night-night

You like love right, I might love like

I might want to, don’t know how to

Way too bright to, say I don’t

Say I do, with a song

Something blue, borrowed love

You recoup, who seek who

Who need who, where we lay

You need truth, you need more

Than I’m coming through

Shoulda never got too comfortable

Shoulda never looked over you to get under you

Uh, wait, apologies don’t make me bulletproof

Well see

You were lucky to be

With somebody like me

Baby I’m a queen, yeah yeah

Oh, oh hell no

You just set the tone

You must have not known

That I’m not no

One night only, well

No I’m not, no I’m not no

One night only

(Do you love, do you love, oh)
