I Love the Night

I Love the Night
(By Chris de Burgh, 1984.)

Come to my door. Meet me at midnight.
I can't wait anymore, and after midnight,
We must head for the town,
Keep under cover till dawn,
With a bagful of wine.

The night is alive. Look in the shadows,
Because now is the time, out in the shadows,
To be somebody else, a complete transformation
From the someone we are in the day.

I hear a noise. There is something going on.
I hear a voice. There is something going on.
I see the boys. There is something going on,
And something is happening to me, yea.

I love the night. I love the night.
I love the element of danger and the ecstasy of flight.
I love the night. I love the night.
I love to dance with a stranger and feel her delight,
And when the dancing is through, I kick off my shoes,
And I listen to the beating of my heart.

After the fall, then came the hunger
In the hearts of us all, ooh, such a hunger
That begins after dark, hides in the heart
Like a wolf that is waiting inside.

I see a light. There is something going on.
It's getting bright. There is something going on.
I look outside. There is something going on.
And someone is calling to me.

I love the night. I love the night.
I love the element of danger and the ecstasy of flight.
I love the night. I love the night.
I love to be with a stranger and feel her delight,
And when the morning begins, I have to get in
Before sunlight can fall upon my face.

I love the night. I love the night.
I love the element of danger and the ecstasy of flight.
I love the night. I love the night.
