Roxy Music – If It Takes All Night lyrics


Oh here it comes again
That old ennui
I hope it wonґt stay long
Well itґs every-man to his own thing
And every singer to his song
If youґre feeling low
And all upset
Nothing's going right
You just make a wish
Like in a fairy tale
And iґll bewitch you
If it takes all night
There are many things
That I could say
To try and comfort you
But I know the words youґd like to hear
Are simply "i love you"
Sometimes iґm up
Sometimes iґm down
A topsy-turvy life
But only searching
For the truth
And iґll find it
If it takes all night long
Well I myself
May main concern
Is what I can afford
So if music be my mistress
Then at least sheґs madame claude... Dґaccord
Ah - more champagne!
To lose this pain
Would be very nice
So iґll help myself to one more drink
And iґll find myself
If it takes all night long
