BECAUSE THE NIGHT

Official studio version


Take me now baby here as I am
Pull me close, try and understand
Desirous 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
They can't hurt you now
They 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, telephone
Love is an angel disguised as lust
Here in our bed till 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
They can't touch you now
They can't touch 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

With love we sleep with doubt
The vicious circle turns and burns without
You I cannot live, forgive me now
The time has come to take the moment and
They can't hurt us now
They can't hurt us 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
