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,
