Steppenwolf – Night Time's For You lyrics

Your hair hangs under black silk
The gown you wear blows in the wind
You're one of the devil's best friends
Your burning eyes are doin' me in

The night time's for you, yeah
The night time's for you
The night time's for you, yeah
The night time's for you

You think up evil and sin
And take away everything that I own
Talk in symbols and signs
That goes beyond
Anything that I've known

{Repeat Chorus}

Does the night give you power
Just to rule over me
I've been waiting for the hour
'Til your chains set me free
Set me free, set me free, set me free


Full moon shines in your eyes
A bell tolls, keeps ringin' the hour
The birds you keep scream to be free
And like a bird, I'm under your power

{Repeat Chorus}
