Mary Black – Nightime lyrics

City walls where the neon spits as it falls
Two dark shadows fade in the night
This is no place for love
And in the park where the streetlight kisses the dark
Silent waves and times they're own
They'll have their own way now

In the nighttime neon sunset leaps
Out of the heart of the city streets
To the pavement where the dancing girls go down
To another world
Where the bright lights always sine
From the pale love and the painted face
Cheap disguises of another race
Where the sweet life and the flowing wine makes me
Light in my head dan takes the trouble off my mind
But I know that goes so far


We could be like lovers too dancing in this frozen room
Hold me, hold me, stand so close
Take the time don't leave, don't leave me here there's danger

I heard the voices in the night, flashing in the hills
The smell of burning on the wind
We could be in danger from the strangers here inside
From the glory in their lives
And the passion in their eyes

Chorus & repeat ii
