One night stand

Story Behind The Song

When I studied at the conservatory in Holland, I met a really nice Danish girl who was in Holland for just 4 days. We started talking and she told me she was in Holland to find out if this was the country she would like to study classical vocals for one year. I suggested I'd show her around Amsterdam, where I live and we had a wonderfull evening and a warm night. The morning after I escorted her back to her hotel where we hugged and said goodbye and then left it at that. It's not something that happens to me often. It was a really special evening for me and I just had to write a song about it.

Lyrics

You started Talking to me, I take one look at you, that smile, your eyes are shining in the dark, here with me.
What is happening to me? The past year I had a wall, a wall around my heart.
It's coming down and the feelings now exposed in me, make me ask you, ask you out.

Chorus:
We're making love, just for one night, I look in your eyes and it feels right. We're taking our time on this special one night stand.

We're walking down the street I'ts cold and wet, the rain is falling down, down on you and me. you take me by the arm and take away the nervousness in me, when you say I'm sweet. And it feels, like a weight that's lifted of my shoulders, because with you, I can be myself.

Chorus.
