Resurrection Jukebox Entry 9

Because The Night - Patti Smith group (Ivan Kral)

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

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



Because The Night

Here I am.
Try and understand
the fire I breathe,
a banquet on which we feed.
Come on now,
take my hand;
they can't hurt you now
because the night belongs to us.
When I'm alone,
a ring, the telephone.
Try and understand
the way I feel;
as the sun descends
they can't touch you now.
We sleep.
The vicious circle
turns and burns...
Without you I can't live.
