Patti Smith – As The Night Goes By lyrics

By patti smith


Darlin' come under cover
Another night to discover
Let's slip where senses gather
Let's drift between the sea and sky
As the night goes by

Sands shift
Orchids so strange
In the moonlight
Brushing our faces
Places where love blooms
And dies
While the night goes by
Oh, and the spirits call
Sun upon your shadows fall
Tracing every breath we draw

Come into my dreams
Come into my dreams
Darlin' let's go where the night goes
Let's drift where senses gather
Let's make this night last forever
Into my dreams
Into my dreams

Darlin' let's go
Where the night goes
Time slips
Oh darlin' how it flies
When the night goes by

All through the night
Sirens call
Come to me
I'll come to you
As the night softly
Goes by bye

Midnight
Moon on our shoulder
Daybreak
Another one older
Darlin' heavenly blue
Glories fade into view

Let's go
Under the stars
That are beating
Under the moonlight
Stars shoot
Dusk just a whisper
Make this night
Last forever
Oh how I wonder
Where the night goes
Oh let's wonder
Where the night goes
As the night goes
By bye
By bye
