  • The afternoon has gently passed me by
    The evening spreads its sail against the sky
    Waiting for tomorrow
    Just another day
    God bid yesterday goodbye

    Bring on the night
    I couldn't stand another hour of daylight
    Bring on the night
    I couldn't stand another hour of daylight

    The future is but a question mark
    Hangs above my head there in the dark
    Can't see for the brightness
    Is staring me blind
    God bid yesterday goodbye

    Bring on the night
    I couldn't stand another hour of daylight
    Bring on the night
    I couldn't stand another hour of daylight

    Bring on the night
    I couldn't stand another hour of daylight
    Bring on the night
    I couldn't stand another hour of daylight

    I couldn't stand another hour of daylight
    I couldn't stand another hour of daylight
    I couldn't stand another hour of daylight
    I couldn't stand another hour of daylight
    I couldn't stand another hour of daylight
    I couldn't stand another hour of daylight
    I couldn't stand another hour of daylight
    I couldn't stand another hour of daylight
    I couldn't stand another hour of daylight
    I couldn't stand another hour of daylight
    I couldn't stand another hour of daylight Writer/s: Gordon Sumner
