Kirsty Maccoll – Until The Night lyrics

The sun disappears bringing fears that come only at night
With hopes and dreams that will wither away in the light
And thoughts wander back to the girl with the perfect smile
Who said she would never leave you alone
But she had to spend some time on her own for a while

There's more than one nightmare at large in this city tonight
You know you can't shut out the dark with the neon light
Deep in the town the night birds are walking
And somewhere a heart is being broken
One lonely soul finds a bar that stays open all night

It's alright until the night when you can't forget she went away

It's alright until the night when you can't forget she went away

A song drifts along from a bar where a jukebox plays
And triggers the memory of happier summer days
Drive to the beach, sun on the water
Love was in reach and you never saw that
The sun was sinking and love was fading away
