  • I'm too tired to go to bed
    I'm too wired for anything except
    The crossfire in my head
    It's been a long night
    Cos I took all I can take
    Til the walls shook and the windows break
    I want to phone you but it's far too late
    It's been a long night

    So talk me down
    Talk me down
    Talk me down
    Talk me down

    Cos we fought an endless war
    Til we forgot what we were fighting for
    Now we can't stop
    But we can withdraw
    In the long night

    So talk me down
    Talk me down
    Talk me down
    Talk me down

    The light flashed and I thought I'd died
    My life passed before my eyes
    It went too fast for the love I feel
    Inside

    So talk me down
    Talk me down
    Talk me down
    Talk me down

    Down, down, down

    Lay your head near mine
    Tell me that it's all fine
    Love me while there's still time
    It's been a long night Writer/s: SIMON PETTY
