Sometimes nights together are unexpected—there isn’t a lot of planning or romantic build-up involved. In this duet’s case, Shelton and Monroe each play characters who are alone yet toying with the idea of a hook up for “one last one more time.”
“That taste, that touch, the fire I miss/ Those kiss me eyes, your red wine lips on mine,” Shelton sings.
Monroe provides her side of the story as well, adding to Shelton’s sentiments when she joins in on the chorus. “I know we shouldn’t, but I don’t care,” she answers. “Need you, want you, I’m right here.”
