Moody Blues – Nights In White Satin lyrics

Nights in white satin, never reaching the end,
Letters I've written, never meaning to send.
Beauty I'd always missed with these eyes before.
Just what the truth is, I can't say anymore.

Cause I love you, yes I love you, oh how I love you.

Gazing at people, some hand in hand,
Just what I'm going through they can't understand.
Some try to tell me, thoughts they cannot defend,
Just what you want to be, you will be in the end.

And I love you, yes I love you,
Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.

Nights in white satin, never reaching the end,
Letters I've written, never meaning to send.
Beauty I've always missed, with these eyes before.
Just what the truth is, I can't say anymore.

Cause I love you, yes I love you,
Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.
Cause I love you, yes I love you,
Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.

Breath deep
The gathering gloom
Watch lights fade
From every room
Bedsitter people
Look back and lament
Another day's useless
Energy spent

Impassioned lovers
Wrestle as one
Lonely man cries for love
And has none
New mother picks up
And suckles her son
Senior citizens
Wish they were young

Cold hearted orb
That rules the night
Removes the colours
From our sight
Red is gray and
Yellow white
But we decide
Which is right
And
Which is an Illusion

    The singer has been forsaken by one they still love - the song is a lament on how broken they are over the lost love and how much they still love the one who has left them. I don't see it as a lot of non-sequiturs at all. Each verse makes perfect sense if you view it as the lament. This person is remembering with great sadness the love they used to share - the nights on white satin sheets, etc. Now the forsaken lover tries to understand, even while burdened by sad memories of the love they've lost.

    Interesting comments by the unregistered. I can definitely see it as being a lovers lament over the loss of their lover.

    I also took it as a lovers lament. Change the Nights into Knights and you have a never ending quest for unrequited love. A lover pining from afar trying to reveal his feelings to his one true love. As he wrestles with his feelings and his desire to reach out he is confused at what is love. Is his quest for her love pure? Is it true and unselfish. The dark of night surrounds his thoughts and cloaks the truth. Despite all of the evidence around him of lives with and without love he is trapped in his own web of self doubt perhaps never being able to share the love with the one he desires.
