  • Beware
    Of his promise
    Believe
    What I say
    Before
    I go forever
    Be sure
    Of what you say

    So he paints a pretty picture
    And he tells you that he needs you
    And he covers you with flowers
    And he always keeps you dreaming
    If he always keeps you dreaming
    You won't have a lonely hour
    If a day could last forever
    You might like your ivory tower

    But the night begins to turn your head around
    And you know you're gonna lose more than you found
    Yeah the night begins to turn your head around

    Beware
    Of his promise
    Believe
    What I say
    Before
    I go forever
    Be sure
    Of what you say

    For the words may come too easy
    If you don't believe I'm leaving
    And goodbye will come too quickly
    If you really think he loves you
    If you really think he loves you
    You would give your love so sweetly
    If that day could last forever
    You would fall in love completely

    But the night begins to turn your head around
    And you know you're gonna lose more than you found
    Yeah the night begins to turn your head around

    But the night begins to turn your head around
    And you know you're gonna lose more than you found
    Yeah the night begins to turn your head around
    And you know you're gonna lose more than you found
    Oh the night begins to turn your head around
    Yeah, the night, the night, the night, the night, the night, the night
    Yeah, the night, the night, the night, the night, the night, the night
    Oh the night begins to turn your head around Writer/s: SEBASTIAN AKCHOTE

  • Rick from PhiladelphiaNot only did I love this song, which remains one of my favorite Four Seasons songs, but the album as a whole is fantastic and I do not know why it was not promoted the way it was. At least two songs on here that could have charted, "The Night" and "Sun Country".
