Stiff Little Fingers – Dead Of Night lyrics

Walk the streets at midnight

As the rain pours down and freezes on the ground

Lean against a street light

Try to work out where it all went wrong

I can see you in my mind's eye
I have no choice

I can hear you in the wild wind

I hear your voice

Your voice

Can't believe it's over

I can't believe that I walked out the door

A misplaced sense of honour
Led me to believe I knew the score

I can see you in reflections

You're there all the time

And if only you would let me
I'd change my mind


In the dead of night

(I would be there for you)

I'd be on your side

(My help would see you through)

Trust in me don't cry

(There now you'll be all right)

In the dead of night

It happened all so quickly
One day we were there and now we are gone

I wish that you'd forgive me

Now I know that I'm the one who's wrong
Can't believe I'm so stupid

I would not see

That you never gave up trying

Or loving me


And I couldn't blame you now

If you didn't want me back
No I couldn't blame you now

Walk the streets at midnight

As the rain pours down and mixes with my tears

And I know I've no right
To try to see you after all these years

But you're always with me

I have no choice
And I know I'll remember

And I'll hear your voice
