Only If For A Night Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

And I had a dream
About my old school
And she was there all pink and gold
And glittery
I threw my arms around her legs,
(Came to weeping, came to weeping)

Then I heard your voice as clear as day,
And you told me I should concentrate,
It was all so strange,
And so surreal,
That a ghost should be so practical.

Only if for a night

And the only solution was to stand and fight,
And my body was loosened, I was set alight,
But you came over me like some holy life,
And although I was burning,
You're the only light

Only if for a night

The grass was so green against my new clothes,
And I did cartwheels in your honour.
Dancing on tiptoes,
My own secret ceremonials,
Before the service began.
In the graveyard, doing handstands.

And I heard your voice as clear as day,
And you told me I should concentrate ,
It was all so strange,
And so surreal,
That a ghost should be so practical.

Only if for a night.
And the only solution was to stand and fight,
And my body was loosened, I was set a light,
But you came over me like some holy life,
And although I was burning,
You're the only light.
Only if for a night.

Ooohh,
Oooooohhhh,
Woah-woah-woah.

My doh, my dear, my darling,
Tell me what all this sighing's about,
Tell me what all this sighing's about.

And I heard your voice as clear as day,
And you told me I should concentrate,
It was all so strange,
And so surreal,
That a ghost should be so practical.

Only if for a night.
Yeyeyeye-yeyeyeye-ahhaaaooooh.
Only if for a night.
Yeyeyeye-yeyeyeye-ahhaaaooooh.
Only if for a night.
Yeyeyeye-yeyeyeye-ahhaaaooooh.
Only if for a night.
Yeyeyeye-yeyeyeye-ahhaaaooooh.
Only if for a night.
Yeyeyeye-yeyeyeye-ahhaaaooooh.
Only if for a night.
Yeyeyeye-yeyeyeye-ahhaaaooooh.
Only if for a night.
Yeyeyeye-yeyeyeye-ahhaaaooooh.
Only if for a night.
Yeyeyeye-yeyeyeye-ahhaaaooooh.
Only if for a night.
