The Night Will Only Know

Album: In Pieces (1993)
  • That night will live forever
    Their first time to lie together
    They were finally where desire dared them to go
    Both belonging to another
    But longing to be lovers
    Promising each other that the night will only know
    Parked on some old backstreet
    They laid down in the back seat
    And fell into the fire down below
    But they would pay for their deceiving
    For a deadly web was weaving
    Why they picked that spot that evening
    Lord, the night will only know
    Well within the innuendos
    Just outside the steamy windows
    The night was shattered by a woman's scream
    Motionless and frightened
    The grip of fate had tightened
    And with trembling hands they wiped away the steam
    They saw a woman pleading
    Stumbling, begging and retreating'
    Til she became the victim of her foe
    And they watched her fall in silence
    To save their own alliance
    But the reason for the violence
    Just the night will only know
    And every paper ran the story
    She was stripped of all her glory
    And the told exactly how the woman died
    Abandoned and forsaken
    Too many pills were taken
    And they ruled the woman's death a suicide
    Bound by their behavior
    They could have been her savior
    Now guilt becomes the endless debt they owe
    But another crime was committed
    And it's never been admitted
    Have the guilty been acquitted
    Lord, the night will only know Writer/s: GARTH BROOKS, STEPHANIE DAVIS, JENNY YATES
