I Love The Night

  • That night her kiss told me it was over
    I walked out late into the dark
    The misty gloom seems to soak up my sorrow
    The further I went on I felt a spreading calm
    Then suddenly my eyes were bathed in a light
    And the lovely lady in white was by my side
    She said "Like me I see you're walking alone
    Won't you please stay?" I couldn't look away

    She said I love the night
    The day is OK and the sun can be fun
    But I live to see those rays slip away
    I love the night
    There's so much I can show and give to you
    If you will welcome me tonight
    If only you had been there my dear
    We could have shared this together

    No mortal was meant to see such wonder
    One look in the mirror told me so
    Come darkness I'll see her again
    Yes I'm gonna go 'cause now I know

    She said I love the night
    The day is OK and the sun can be fun
    But I live to see those rays slip away
    I love the night
    There's so much that I can show and give to you
    If you will welcome me tonight
    If only you had been there my dear
    We could have shared this togetherWriter/s: DONALD ROESER

  • Joe from Grants Pass, OrThis is still my fav of BOC..
  • Joe from Grants Pass, OrAlan Lanier is SO underrated!
  • Dane from Green Cove Springs Fla., FlCool song by a really underated band.Nice harmonies too.
  • Paul from Rothesay, Nb, CanadaI saw BOC in the early 80's, supported by Aldo Nova. As we were leaving, following the encore, this song was blasting through the PA. A haunting song.
  • Matt from Winter Park, FlI never associated this song with vampires. It's always been one of my favorite Blue Oyster Cult songs ever. I love the really chill vibe it gives off.
