Sweet Is The Night Lyrics

Artist: Electric Light Orchestra
Album: Out of the Blue

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
But I can't seem to get to you.

Well, you start to sway, check your Cartier
'Cos 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
Wishing and hoping

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

THIS is my FAVE ELO song. The verses are some of his (Jeff's) best musically but the chorus IS his best. When it plays it's like a musical drug to my mind, taking me into a gleeful, spiritual place like only a few other songs can. Wish he'd repeat the chorus about 50 times, then I might get enough.
CRANK it and you'll be a convert!
