Poor Man's Moody Blues

Album: Compact Story (1979)
  • All the nights that I've missed you
    All the nights without end
    All the times that I've called you
    Only needing a friend

    Now your eyes shine with beauty
    That I missed long ago
    Guess the truth is I love you
    I can't say any more

    'Cause I need you
    Yes, I want you
    Yes, I love you

    As I look from my window
    To the streets where you stand
    I am gazing through dark glass
    We can't walk hand in hand

    Though your friends try to tell me
    Though your friends you defend
    They keep my heart from your heart
    We must be in the end

    'Cause I love you
    Yes, I need you
    Yes, I love you, love you

    All the nights that I've missed you
    All the nights without end
    All the times that I've called you
    Only needing a friend

    Now your eyes shine with beauty
    That I missed long ago
    Guess the truth is I love you
    I can't say any more

    'Cause I need you
    Yes, I want you
    Yes, I love you, love you

    'Cause I need you
    Yes, I want you
    Yes, I love you, love you, love youWriter/s: JOHN LEES

  • Paulo from PortoI think that there is just a version of the original song. Barclay James Harvest plays the same music with different words, but essentialy, the music is tge same. A good cover version, on my opinion of the original Nights in White Satin
