  • Night and day
    You are the one
    Only you beneath the moon
    Or under the sun
    Whether near to me or far
    It's no matter, darling
    Where you are
    I think of you
    Day and night
    Night and day

    Why is it so
    That this longing for you
    Follows wherever I go?
    In the roarin' traffic's boom
    In the silence of my lonely room
    I think of you
    Day and night
    Night and day

    Under the hide of me
    There's an oh such a hungry
    Yearnin' burnin' inside of me
    And it's torment won't be through
    'Til you let me spend my life
    Making love to you
    Day and night
    Night and day

    Night and day
    Under the hide of me
    There's an oh such a hungry
    Yearnin' burnin' way down inside of me
    And it's torment won't ever be through
    'Til you let me spend my life
    Making love to you
    Day and night

  • John from Slc, UtDavid, in the context of this song "making love to you" means "show you how much I love you". In everything I do for you.
  • Ken from Louisville, KyThere is a shout-out to this song in the Litte River Band's 1977 hit "Reminecsing". Right after lead singer Glenn Shorock sings "To a Porter tune" the backup singers sing "Night And Day".

  • David from Bronx, NyWhat does "making love to you" mean in this context?
