Janis Ian – I'll Cry Tonight lyrics

I'll cry tonight
Night is the enemy
Poisons the memory
Martyrs it secretly
Midnight comes too fast
It comes too silently
The moon has no mercy now
To live anymore
One day the rains will come
And wash away the tears
Sunlight will fade the years
Midnight comes too fast
And I don't want
The night to last
Shadows on the glass
Faces in window panes
Old lace and picture frames
Rattle their ancient chains
Midnight will surprise
Moonlight at the door
The night has a thousand eyes
And I don't know why
To live any more
They told me how you loved me
When I finally got the bravery
To look beyond these prison walls
And shadows hanging over me
I cannot find a way to be
A lover for your life, although
They tell me it comes easily
I somehow cannot let the seasons pass
Without demanding that they last
And though I know forever well,
I also know my private hell
Silent voices in the night
They are crying- Sacrifice
One day the rains will come
And wash away the years
Sunlight will fade the tears
Midnight comes too fast
And I don't want
The night to last
