  • One more night
    One more night

    I've been trying, ooh, so long to let you know
    Let you know how I feel
    And if I stumble, if I fall, just help me back
    So I can make you see

    Please give me one more night
    Give me one more night
    One more night, 'cause I can't wait forever
    Give me just one more night, ooh, just one more night
    Oh, one more night, 'cause I can't wait forever

    I've been sitting here so long
    Wasting time, just staring at the phone
    And I was wondering should I call you
    Then I thought maybe you're not alone

    Please give me one more night, give me just one more night
    Oh, one more night, 'cause I can't wait forever
    Please give me one more night, ooh, just one more night
    Oh, one more night, 'cause I can't wait forever
    Give me one more night, give me just one more night
    Ooh, one more night, 'cause I can't wait forever

    Like a river to the sea
    I will always be with you
    And if you sail away
    I will follow you

    Give me one more night, give me just one more night
    Oh, one more night, 'cause I can't wait forever

    I know there'll never be a time you'll ever feel the same
    And I know it's only words
    But if you change your mind, you know that I'll be here
    And maybe we both can learn

    Give me just one more night, give me just one more night
    Ooh, one more night, 'cause I can't wait forever
    Give me just one more night, give me just one more night
    Ooh, one more night, 'cause I can't wait forever Writer/s: Phil Collins

  • FaeThis is his best for me...the longing in every note. What is more poignant than love escaping through your fingers?
  • Scorpio from PhoenixIn concert, I heard Mr. Collins explain that this song is NOT about trying to get an old lover back. Instead, it's a fella after a not so great first date, attempting to get "one more night" or really, one more date to "prove that he could be the guy.". And at the very least, to redeem himself for an unexcptionable first date.
  • 007 Mayor from Nigeria This is a song that calms my nerves whenever I play it. This is the song that made me to love Phil Collins. Even after his lifetime, this particular song will remain evergreen in my memory
  • Kenny from Cleveland, OhioBeautiful song! The Jacksons song he was thinking of is "One More Chance" from their "Victory" album. That song was incredibly not released as a single.
  • Ademola Adebisi from Sangoota,nigeriaGreat evergreen song
  • Siahara Shyne Carter from United StatesI don't really care about the meaning of this song ;) but His voice is beautiful.*o*
  • Af from ArgentinaI like to think he is sited beside a hospital bed, with a loved one in his/her's last hours, begging for a little more time together.
