Sweet Is the Night

This song is by Electric Light Orchestra and appears on the album Out of the Blue (1977) and on the box set Afterglow (1990).

When the day is done
And there's nowhere to run
And the people of the city
Have all lost and won
In your city dress
You stand and stare
And you smoke another cigarette
And comb your hair
And the light that shines
Paints a trace of sadness
On the street, I wait
I can't seem to get to you

Well, you start to sway
Check your Cartier
'Cause it's getting late
You can't afford to wait
So you move along
Where it's going on
And the people of the night
Are playing 'till the dawn
And the sun that shines
Paints a trace of sadness
In your eyes that cry
Wishin' and hopin'

Sweet, sweet is the night
Now you are near
Dark, dark were the days
They disappear
Sweet, sweet is the night
Now you are near

Well, you did your thing
And you lost your wings
And you hurt so bad
You lost everything
And the tears that fall
On the city wall
Will fade away with
The rays of morning light
That shines
Paints a smile across
Your pretty face
I know
Everything is alright, alright

Sweet, sweet is the night
Now you are near
Dark, dark were the days
They disappear
Sweet, sweet is the night
Now you are near

(Sweet is the night)

Sweet, sweet is the night
Now you are near
Dark, dark were the days
They disappear
Sweet, sweet is the night
Now you are near

(Now you are near)
