One Night Standards

Album: Never Will (2019)
Charted: 76
  • I ain't gonna stay for the weekend
    I ain't gonna jump off the deep end
    I ain't gonna ask where your ring is
    Thing is, we all got secrets

    You don't wanna hear about my last break up
    I don't wanna worry 'bout space you take up
    I don't even care if you're here when I wake up

    It's just a room key
    You ain't gotta lie to me
    Can't you just use me like I'm using you?
    How it goes is, bar closes
    There's no king bed covered in roses
    Just a room without a view

    I don't want a number, you ain't gonna answer
    Let's just stick to the one night standards

    Well, I ain't Cinderella, but who is?
    Call me what you want if the shoe fits
    I ain't gonna say I never do this, 'cause truth is
    Lonely makes a heart ruthless

    Ain't nobody gonna hurt nobody
    Ain't nothing wrong with needing somebody
    You can leave all that
    Down in the lobby

    It's just a room key
    You ain't gotta lie to me
    Can't you just use me like I'm using you?
    How it goes is, bar closes
    There's no king bed covered in roses
    Just a room without a view

    No, I don't want a number, you ain't gonna answer
    Let's just stick to the one night standards

    But how it goes is, bar closes
    There's no king bed covered in roses
    Just a room without a view

    No, I don't give a damn about the morning after
    Bottles on the floor, don't even matter
    I don't want a number, you ain't gonna answer
    Let's just stick to the one night standards
    The one night standards
