Because the Night
Natalie Merchant

Because the Night

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 under your command
Take my hand, as the sun descend,
They can't hurt you now,

Can't hurt you now,
Can't hurt you now.

(Chorus)
Because the night belongs to lovers,
Because the night belongs to us.
Because the night belongs to lovers,
Because the night belongs to us.

Have I doubt baby when I'm alone?
Love is a ring, the 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 descend,
They can't hurt you now,

Can´t hurt you now,
Can't hurt you now.

(Chorus)
Because the night belongs to lovers,
Because the night belongs to us.
Because the night belongs to lovers,
Because the night belongs to us.

With lost we live
No doubt the vicious circle turns and burns.
Without you, oh I cannot live
Forgive the yearning burning.
I believe it's time to heal to feel,
So take me now, take me now, take me now.

(Chorus)
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us
Because the night belongs to lovers
And everybody says it belongs to us.
