Just For Tonight

Just For Tonight - Vanessa L. Williams

Verse 1:
It's hard to realize we said our last goodbyes
Where could the dream have gone to
Now I know there's no way that I can make you stay
No matter how I want to

We made some memories that my heart will always treasure
Before you close the door let's make one more

REFRAIN:
Baby, just for tonight let me give myself to you
And all I ask is just for tonight love me like you used to do
And i promise that I won't cry, I won't ask you why
I won't even try to change your feelings
If you just hold me tight, just once more, just for tonight

Verse 2:
I thought the love we'd found
Was built on solid ground
And it would just grow stronger
Crazy as it may seem
I need to dream that dream
For just, just a little longer

So for the sake of all that magic we made together
Open your heart to mine just one more time

Repeat REFRAIN

All I want is one more night
So why don't you come to me, let me dream
This night means everything to me
All I ask is for tonight
Baby just hold me tight
Come to me, let me dream
This night means everything to me

This song is one of many gems off Vanessa L. Williams's (She needed to add the L because Vanessa Williams of Soul Food fame registered her name first.) The Comfort Zone LP. When I first heard the song, I remember being in awe with Vanessa's singing. It was like she was singing from personal experience. As I listened and memorized the lyrics, I thought to myself, damn Vanessa's slick as I don't know what. I was thinking, girl please, it's obvious that she's hoping that by rocking this guy's world one last time that he'll realize for himself the mistake of leaving her.

That theme I think is quite common in real life. Sadly I've experienced it just trying to get second dates with some pathetic dude that put me under his spell after the first date. Need I remind you of Aaron...*LOL*. Unlike Vanessa's situation, however, that chance to rock his world one last time never came. That pisses me off more than anything.

But don't fret. I've been over Aaron for a while now. He was just the closest example I had that conveyed those same feelings. It's always the ones you really like that fuck things over with you.

As it turns out, Vanessa may have been speaking from personal experience. Check out these fun facts about her hit song. I don't know if any of those facts have been substantiated but I found the trivia interesting.

Hemingway, to everyone that's going through a "Just For Tonight" scenario currently, as hard as it may be, it may be best to cut the jerk loose. Ain't nothing worse than stroking the MF's ego and making him think he's even more of the shit than he thinks he is. So maybe, Just For Tonight, we should instead of wasting time on a sour lemon, try to make some sweet lemonade with someone else. Just a crazy thought. Just a crazy post..:-)

I love Vaness L Williams. If she was a bit younger, had no kids, and was willing to experiment, I'd lose my lesbian virginity with her!! LOL. She's gorgeous!! =)
