Because The Night

Take me now, baby, here as I am
Hold me close, and try and understand
Desire is hunger is the fire I breathe
Love is a banquet on which we feed

Come on now, try and understand
The way I feel under your command
Take my hand, xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
They can't hurt you now
They can't hurt you now
They can't hurt you now

Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

Have I doubt, baby, when I'm alone
Love is a ring a telephone
Love is an angel, disguised as lust
Here in our bed 'til the morning comes

Come on now, try and understand
The way I feel under your command
Take my hand, xxxxxxxxxx
They can't hurt you now
They can't hurt you now
They can't hurt you now

Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

With love we sleep, with doubt the vicious circle turns, and burns
Without you, I cannot live, forgive the yearning burning
I believe in love too real to feel, take me now, take me now, take me now

Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us


Don't Talk (MTV Unplugged)

Don't talk I will listen.
Don't talk,
you keep your distance
for I'd rather hear some truth tonight than
entertain your lies,
take you poison silently.
Let me be.
Let me close my eyes.

Don't talk, I'll believe it.
Don't talk, listen to me instead,
I know that if you think of it,
both long enough and hard
it's the drink you drown your troubles in
that is the trouble that you're in now.

You talk talk talk about it,
you talk as if you care
but when your talk is over
you tilt that bottle in the air,
tossing back more than your share.

Don't talk, I can guess it.
Don't talk, well now you're restless and you need somewhere
to put the blame
for how I feel inside.
You'll look for a close and easy mark
and then you'll see me as your fair game.

Then you talk talk talk about it,
you talk as if you care
when your talk is over
you tilt that bottle in the air
tossing back more than your share.

You talk talk talk about it,
you talk as if you care.
I'm marking every word
and I can tell this time for sure,
your talk is the finest I have heard.

So don't talk, I'm sleepy
let me go on dreaming.
How your eyes glow so fiercely
I can tell your that you're inspired by the name you just chose for me.
Now what was it? O, never mind it.
We will talk talk talk about this
when your head is clear.
Yes, I'll discuss this in the morning,
but until then
then you may talk but I won't hear.


Candy Everybody Wants

Hey, hey, give'em what they want.
If lust and hate is the candy,
if blood and love tastes so sweet,
then we give 'em what they want.

Hey, hey, give'em what they want.

So their eyes are growing hazy

because they wanna turn it on,
so their minds are soft and lazy.
Well, hey,hey give 'em what they want.

If lust and hate is the candy,

if blood and love tastes so sweet,
then we give 'em what they want.

So their eyes are growing hazy
because they wanna turn it on,
so their minds are soft and lazy.
Well... who do you wanna blame?

Hey, hey, give 'em what they want.

If lust and hate is the candy,
if blood and love tastes so sweet,
then we give 'em what they want.

So their eyes are growing hazy
because they wanna turn it on,
so their minds are soft and lazy.

Well... who do you wanna blame?


These Are Days

These are the days

These are days
you'll remember.
Never before and never since,
I promise,
will the whole world be warm as this.
And as you feel it,
you'll know it's true
that you are blessed and lucky.
It's true that you are touched by something
that will grow and bloom in you.

These are the days you'll remember.

When May is rushing over you
with desire to be part of the miracles you see
in every hour.

You'll know it's true that you are blessed and lucky.
It's true that you are touched by something
that will grow and bloom in you.

These are days.

These are the days you might fill with laughter until you break.

These days you might feel a shaft of light
make its way across your face.
And when you do then you'll know how it was meant to be.
See the signs and know their meaning.
It's true, then you'll know how it was meant to be.
Hear the signs and know they're speaking to you, to you
