Luther Vandross – I Want The Night To Stay lyrics

I want the night to stay
Luther Vandross and Nat Adderley, Jr
(album: power of love - 1991)

(In your arms) In your arms Yeah

I dream enough to know the way true love should feel
I'm strong enough to show you the heart can always heal
It shouldn't be so hard to let our love just live
It's really all we have, the love we need to give
I've been dreaming, I don't wanna be awake
I don't wanna see the day, I just want the night to stay

(I want the night to stay)
(And last a little longer)
So we can always be, in love you see (See)
(I want the night to stay) Stay
(In your arms) In your arms Yeah

Tomorrow's gonna come (Come and chase tonight away)
And leave me sitting right here to cry the day away
I've been hoping that tomorrow won't rush in
I don't want to say goodbye, I don't want the night to end

Repeat Chorus

(Forever together)
(Forever together) Stay
(Forever together)
We're gonna be together
(Forever together) Stay
(Forever and ever) Oh Yeah
(In your arms)
In your arms Yeah
(In your arms)
(All night) All night
(Tonight) Tonight
(Good night)
(I want the night to stay)
I want the night to stay
