A fool for one night

I love you my darling, I will till I die,

I will till the light has gone from my eyes,

I will till the heavens hold one final star,

Forgive me my love for a mistake too far.


A casual romance, a time-away fling,

I knew it was wrong but the night and the drink,

It was heat of the moment nothing rehearsed,

Bravado undid me, she called you at work.


I love you my darling, my shock was complete,

I live in a nightmare on Broken Heart Street,

I have no excuse, no words will suffice,

A misguided one off, a fool for one night.
