    I think it is about a man trying to pursue a woman of his dreams and he will find her some dark and lonely night and be fulfilled by love.

    Memories of a special boyfriend , Mark
    The love of my life , but I didn’t know it then ,in 1975 we were madly in love , but I was young and didn’t want to be tied down, reading his love letters make me realise how much he loved me

    "Someone to be calling to in between the dark and the light. Loneliness will find you in-between the wrong and the right" are just some of the dark lyrics in this very risque song. It speaks the truth to what and how deeply darkness can enter into the soul of a man and woman when they are chronically alone because a normal relationship will not satisfy their hunger for something different.

    This man is haunted by his dreams of finding that very kind of woman. One that his heart of loneliness has taken him into craving for in his world of sexual imagination and desire. Being as such he has probably become addicted to pornography, which stokes the lusts that are burning in his loins and soul. The loneliness that he feels has cultivated his mind into a playground for the devil. He has allowed his soul to fall into depravity and the worshiping and desiring a devil in bed, but an angel otherwise to fulfill the lustful and evil sexual wants of his idle mind.

    Loneliness will do such a thing, drive you out into the night where there lurks blatant evil and lustful people who are likewise searching for an ultimate sexual experience. And from his dreams that keeps him tossing and turning on his cold and lonely bed, they drive him into the night where he has got to find this certain kind of woman, one who screams with pleasure. He is thrust out, night after night, scouring the sexual haunts of the city streets, bars and clubs where he is prone to find this kind of woman; one that will fulfill not only his desires but is willing to allow him to explore and fulfill all of her own deep dark and evil lusty desires. They are looking for each other out there, he knows this and he is confident that he will find her and she will find him on one of these nights and their search will end. Then he and his "pretty mama" will plunge their lustful souls into the deepest, darkest, demonic, erotic and blissful sexual adventures of a lifetime - yes one these nights!

    The song is about Shakespeare saying desire is more beautiful than reality. You can hear beautiful things, you can see beautiful things, you can taste beautiful things, feel beautiful things but is fragmented human possibilities to contact with reality. Far more than this is when you are completely fulfilled with all you have as a human being to be in touch with what you desire. It is an unique experience going far above anything else. No one is more in touch with him/herself to experience what makes life the most beautiful thing to exist. Not just seeing, hearing, tasting, feeling. Not just your heart, your mind, your soul, it is totally you. Time and place don’t exist. It is whole you, completely you making you feel so entirely alive. Maximum, endless, timeless and absolutely calling to find your destination.
    That’s the experience sought in the song. And with all in it and at all cost he is gonna find that experience. One of these nights.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    At first I heard that the song was based on a Man's sexual encounters with a woman.
    But I've read recently that the song is based on procastination or better yet "Putting things off" and how we as humans have a tendency to say "one of these nights" or "one of these days" and "I will do such and such...", It's amazing..., I love the record..., I was born a couple of months prior to when it came out..., but I still love it...
