One Night Stand

by Brett Matthew West

One Night Stand

In our room you left
Your little one night stand
It was there I found on a note
The name of another man

Just someone you say you knew
A long, long time ago
Well, I'm not sure if all that's true
I don't think I want to know

The grass ain't always greener
On the wrong side of the hill
You know how much I love you
And I always will

I thought we'd be together
You seemed to understand
I need more to hold me
Than a one night stand

Don't look to me to be the one
To forgive and forget
Cheatin' gets you everything
Except the love you need from me

I never would imagine
This is what I get from you
I don't think you realize
What you put me through

You couldn't wait to be my woman
Now I can't be your man
You tore apart our happy home
With your little one night stand

So, if you're gonna cheat on me
Don't tell me you still care
Go and get yourself a room
And sell your love in there

What we had is over
It don't matter any more
You even have a little sign
To hang upon your door

Pillows tell the story
of the love you'll never find
No matter what you try to do
You won't get me off your mind

I gave you everything I could
Inside a golden band
You wanted more so you left me
For a one night stand
