The night goes on

You and me walking on the land
But we can lose a stare from time in time
‘cos we both get lonely
And it makes me more afraid
As the night goes on.

How long will it take until we know
If we should pray and say I’ll let it go
‘cos I feel the danger
That maybe we should try to take it slow
As the night goes on.

And the night goes on
Keeping us waiting, keeping us holding on
‘til we’re not afraid of falling in love
And the night goes on
Don’t let it shake us, just let it make us strong
So we’re not afraid of falling in love
And the night goes on.

You and me keep talking heart to heart
But why don’t we stop talking and just start
‘cos it makes me restless
Can’t you see it’s tearing us apart

As the night goes on ….
And the night goes on ….

I see myself when I look in your eyes
Staring back with a look of surprise
At what’s going on
Don’t turn back you can get away now
We’re just a step from ten feet off the ground
We’re alright where we belong
And nobody can say where we were wrong.

And the night goes on …
