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 together

Max from Salt Lake City, UtBOC has come right out and said this song is about Vampires. There is a small bridge piece, and final verse that was cut from the Spectres album, but is played live which makes it clear about the meaning.
What hidden wonders now are there to see? They were pointed out to me.
If only you had been there my dear We could have shared this together
Now I never rise until sun falls. And my vision knows no walls. And i’m looking for ladies walking alone. They forget the day. When they hear me say.
Then Chorus again
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.
