​Reach for the Night

This song is by Jack Bruce and appears on the album Silver Rails (2014).

I used to be somebody
In the general scheme of things
I built myself a folly cause
It looked like it had wings
I started to run from myself
I became someone else
I was running straight to hell

I said, you gotta help me now
It's getting kinda strange
I can't go on, somehow I've got to change
Whenever I reach for the night
You know it just ain't right
'Cause it's a pretty scary sound
To hear your future running down

I thought I was a mirror
Looking down from a golden wall
Thought I was a killer
Didn't know nothing at all
I started to live in the dark
I lost sight of the spark
Then I was out of the ballpark

I said, you gotta help me now
It's getting kinda weird
I can't go on somehow, I've got this fear
Now whenever I reach for the night
I know it just ain't right
'Cause it's a pretty scary sound
To hear your future running down

I heard the answer from deep in my soul
You've got to warm up, keep out of the cold
I heard the answer from inside my head
You got so many miles, can't just end up dead
Get rollin' instead

I heard the answer from deep in my soul
You've got to warm up, keep out of the cold
I heard the answer from inside my head
You got so many miles, can't just end up dead
Get rollin' instead

Now my train can still sing
Along those silver rails
I'm wearing love's ring
And my heart is out of jail
The shadows scare no more
I've come through tomorrow's door
'Cause today's a whole lot more

I said, you've gotta take a chance
Don't make no delays
You gotta join the dance, and make sure you stay
Then whenever you reach for the night
It just won't feel right
'Cause it's a pretty scary sound
To hear your future leaving town

Whenever you reach for the night
It won't feel right
Whenever you reach for the night
It just won't feel right
And whenever you reach for the night
It just won't feel right
You got so many miles
Get rollin' instead
