BECAUSE THE NIGHT

Live 03 Oct 1980 version


Take me now darling here as I am
Pull me close try and understand
I work all day out in the hot sun
Breaking out till the morning comes

Come on now try and understand
The way I feel when I'm in your hands
Take me now as the sun descends
They can't hurt you now
They can't hurt you now
They can't hurt you now

Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

What I got I have earned
What I'm not baby I have learned
??? in the sun
And take me now till the morning comes

Come on now try and understand
The way I feel when I'm in your hands
Take me now as the sun descends
They can't hurt us now
They can't hurt us now
They can't hurt us now

Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

Your love it seeds with doubt
The vicious circle turns and turns without
You know I cannot live, forgive me now
The time has come to take the moment and
They can't hurt us now
They can't hurt us now

Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

[Guitar solo]

Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lovers
