One Night Of Lovin' (Chuck Simms) video

Only a woman can come on so wild and free,
Yet insist that I don't watch her
or watch her watch me;
Just stand by the bed and shiver
as if she were cold,
Just lie down beside me and
touch me as if I were gold.

One night of lovin'
don't make up for six nights alone,
I'd rather have one than none,
'cause I'm flesh and bone;
Though sometimes it seems
she ain't worth the trouble at all,
But she can be worth the world
if somehow I can touch her at all.

Right or wrong, a woman can hold any man,
She can take him inside her,
pour his soul in her hand;
Or leave him as weak and weary
as a newborn child,
Fighting to catch his breath
and open his eyes.

One night of lovin' don't make up
for six nights alone,
I'd rather have one than none,
'cause I'm flesh and bone;
Though sometimes it seems
she ain't worth the trouble at all,
But she can be worth the world
if somehow I can touch her at all.
But she can be worth the world
if somehow I can touch her at all.
