Tom Paxton – All Night Long lyrics
All night long,
Dreaming badly,
Feeling something's wrong.
Faces crying

As they fade away,
Who can say where they were going.
Where's their song
Did they leave it in

Their hearts too long.
Were they waiting for
A sunny day.
Who can say who's wind is blowing.

I can't wake the wind to blow my way.
Let them shake the world
I know, I know in my way,
I know that songs that died unsung

Know their way too.
Most songs do.
Most songs do.
All night long

Someone's trying,
To believe that he is strong.
Will he make it
By the fade of the day.

Who can say who's power is growing.
I can't wake the wind to blow my way.
Let them shake the world
I know, I know in my way,

I know that songs that died unsung
Know their way too.
Most songs do.
Most songs do.

All night long,
Dreaming badly,
Feeling something's wrong.
Faces crying

As they fade away,
Who can say where they were going.
With this song
Did they leave it in

Their hearts too long.
Were they waiting for
A sunny day.
Who can say who's wind is blowing.

I can't wake the wind to blow my way.
Let them shake the world
I know, I know in my way,
I know that songs that died unsung

Know their way too.
Most songs do.
Most songs do.
