Patti Smith Because The Night Lyrics
Take me now baby here as I am
Pull me close, try and understand
Desire is hunger is the fire I breathe
Love is a banquet on which we feed

Come on now try and understand
The way I feel when I'm in your hands
Take my hand come undercover
They can't hurt you now,
Can't hurt you now, can't hurt you now
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

Have I doubt when I'm alone
Love is a ring, the telephone
Love is an angel disguised as lust
Here in our bed until the morning comes
Come on now try and understand
The way I feel under your command
Take my hand as the sun descends
They can't touch you now,
Can't touch you now, can't touch you now
Because the night belongs to lovers

With love we sleep
With doubt the vicious circle
Turn and burns
Without you I cannot live
Forgive, the yearning burning
I believe it's time, too real to feel
So touch me now, touch me now, touch me now
Because the night belongs to lovers

Because tonight there are two lovers
If we believe in the night we trust
Because tonight there are two lovers

Anyone else likes this better than the 10,000 Maniacs version?

Excellent lyrics, but everybody will have to just make up a tune to set them to, as there's no music here....

Am I the only one that finds no audio on this post?  The audio on the ad and other posts is fine.  Just not on this one?  Any help?  I love the song and haven't heard it in a while.

I remember playing this song over and over again after having recorded it on my 7" tape-recorder from the radio about 35 years ago. I used to think it was "Here comes the night belongs to Lobo".
