BECAUSE THE NIGHT
(Live 1975 - 1985)

Take me now baby here as I am
Hold me close, try and understand
I work all day out in the hot sun
I break my back till the evening 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
Desire and hunger is the fire I breathe
Just stay in my bed 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

With love we seed
The doubt, the vicious circle
Turns and burns
Without you I cannot live
Forgive me now, the time has come
To take this 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 lovers
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lovers
