BECAUSE THE NIGHT

PATTI SMITH, BECAUSE THE NIGHT (1977)

Bruce Springsteen / Patti Smith

Patti Smith Group - Because the night 1978

Take me now baby here as I am 
Pull me close, try and understand 
Desire is hung 

is the fire I breathe 
Love is a banquet on which we feed

Come on now try and understand 
The way I feel when I'm in your hands 
Take my hand come undercover 
They can't hurt you now, Can't hurt you now, can't hurt you now 
 

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

Have I doubt when I'm alone 
Love is a ring, the telephone 
Love is an angel disguised as lust 
Here in our bed until the morning comes 

Come on now try and understand 
The way I feel under your command 
Take my hand as the sun descends 
They can't touch you now, Can't touch you now, can't touch you now 
 

Because the night belongs to lovers / lust / lovers / us 

With love we sleep
With doubt the vicious circle 
Turn and burns 
Without you I cannot live 
Forgive, the yearning burning 
I believe it's time, too real to feel 
So touch me now,

touch me now,

touch me now 
 

Because the night belongs to lovers / lust / lovers / us 
 

Because tonight there are two lovers 
If we believe in the night we trust 
Because tonight there are two lovers

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