Gerry Rafferty – It's Gonna Be A Long Night lyrics

Starin' at the moon again
Yes you been out on the loose
You still feel like a haunted man
This kinda life just ain't no use.

It's gonna be a long night
Waitin' for the first light
It's gonna be a long night.

You sit around and talk awhile
You go stealin' like a thief
The silence kills and the talk is cheap
And you don't get no relief.

It's gonna be a long night
Waitin' for the first light
It's gonna be a long night.

She left her calling card
And said her last goodbyes
She found a way into your heart
And you lie there wondering why.

Gonna be a long night
Waitin' for the first light
It's gonna be a long night.

It's gonna be a long night
Waitin' for the first light
It's gonna be a long long long long lonely night.

You sit around and talk awhile
You go stealin' like a thief
The silence kills and the talk is cheap
And you don't get no relief.

It's gonna be a long night
Waitin' for the first light
It's gonna be a long night.

It's gonna be a long night
Waitin' for the first light
It's gonna be a long night.

It's gonna be a long night
Waitin' for the first light
It's gonna be a long night.
