Lyrics

When the day is done
And there's nowhere to run
And the people of the city
Have all lost and won,
In your city dress,
You stand and stare
And you smoke another cigarette
And comb your hair
And the light that shines
Paints a trace of sadness
On the street, I wait,
I can't seem to get to you.

Well, you start to sway,
Check your Cartier
'Cause it's getting late,
You can't afford to wait,
So you move along
Where it's going on
And the people of the night
Are playing 'till the dawn
And the sun that shines
Paints a trace of sadness
In your eyes that cry,
Wishin' and hopin'.

Sweet, sweet is the night,
Now you are near.
Dark, dark were the days,
They disappear.
Sweet, sweet is the night,
Now you are near.

Well, you did your thing
And you lost your wings
And you hurt so bad
You lost everything
And the tears that fall
On the city wall
Will fade away with
The rays of morning light
That shines
Paints a smile across
Your pretty face
I know
Everything is alright, alright.

Sweet, sweet is the night,
Now you are near.
Dark, dark were the days,
They disappear.
Sweet, sweet is the night,
Now you are near.

(Sweet is the night)

Sweet, sweet is the night,
Now you are near.
Dark, dark were the days,
They disappear.
Sweet, sweet is the night,
Now you are near.

(Now you are near)
