NOBODY BUT THE NIGHT


Sometime you gotta walk away
With nobody but the night
Sometime you gotta stand alone
For what you know is light
Like a king up in his castle
Far from the world outside
Goin’ to the beggars hall
With nobody but the night

When I was just a frightened boy
And a storm was in the sky
I said a prayer and held my breath
Until it passed me by

And with the mornin’ came the sun
And the robin tweedle-deed
But darkness was my only friend
In my time of need

And who’s that knockin’ at my door
Nobody but the night
And who’s the one you’re waitin’ for
Nobody but the night
And who’s that dancin’ on the shore
When the moon is shinin’ bright
Sometime you gotta give your hand
To nobody but the night

When pretty girls they fly away
And kisses turn to dust
When valentines go up in smoke
And tears they turn to rust
When party lights are dyin’
And shadows start to fall
Sometime you gotta tell your tale
To flowers on the wall

And who’s that knockin’ on your door
Nobody but the night
Who’s the one you’re waitin’ for
Nobody but the night
And who’s that dancin’ on the shore
When the moon is shinin’ bright
Sometime you gotta give your heart
To nobody but the night
