  • How long can I leave the lights in the ceiling on?
    And the static from the TV keeps me company 'til I'm gone
    'Cause I rock back and forth
    Reciting words that I've said wrong
    I swear I've been doing fine
    When I'm busy and got things going on
    Oh, so girl, what you running from?

    Oh, maybe there's something in the midnight hours
    The midnight hours, you know
    And maybe there's something in the dead of night
    When I'm sleeping alone
    Where I always see your face
    God, I wish I didn't though
    Can I have one night, one night, one night
    Where it's just me alone?

    Is it 'cause I've been feeling guilty all along?
    Or is it the gods just tryna tell me to move on?
    'Cause while you're haunting me, that's what you've done
    Oh, so girl, what you running from? (Oh)

    Oh, maybe there's something in the midnight hours
    The midnight hours, you know
    Or maybe there's something in the dead of night
    When I'm sleeping alone
    Where I always see your face
    God, I wish I didn't though
    Can I have one night, one night, one night
    Where it's just me alone?

    So I, I know what it feels like
    So I can wake up in the daylight
    And my chest ain't heavy
    'Cause you're not there with me
    Tell me when that I will be

    Oh, 'cause I rock back and forth
    Reciting words that I've said wrong, mm
    I swear I've been doing fine
    When I'm busy and got things going on
    So what am I running from?

    Oh, maybe there's something in the midnight hours
    The midnight hours, you know
    Or maybe there's something in the dead of night
    When I'm sleeping alone
    Where I always see your face
    God, I wish I didn't though
    Can I have one night, one night, one night
    Where it's just me alone? Oh

    One night, one night, yeah
    So can I have one night, one night, just one night
    So can I have one night, one night
    Can I have one night, one night, just one night
    Where it's just me alone?
