​I Talk To The Night

This song is by Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes.

I Talk To The Night
(J. Lyon/M. Noble)

The sidewalk heaves a sigh of relief
As the heat of the day finally fades
The cracked asphalt bleeds rainbow beads
That dance in the late evening haze

And I turn from my whiskey and I peer out the door
Here comes a boy that I've been waiting for
Deep, dark and silent, the one I adore
I talk to the night
I talk to the night
Hell, maybe I'm crazy, or maybe I'm just tight
Whoa, yea, I talk to the night

Stand stretchin' stare in the deep sea gloom
As the sharp edges melt away
One big world, one little moon
And the curtains shimmy and sway

I reach for my glass and I hear the floor boards squeak
I crawl into my bed and I hear my old bones creak
Then in silence I wait for the darkness to speak
And I talk to the night
Oh, I talk to the night, yes I do
She never argues, no we never fight
I talk to the night
Oh, I talk to the night
Speak to me darlin'

Into my head, the sharp words you said
Stab like a lost child's cry
I'm a loser at best, yea, and all the rest
To which, of course, there is no reply
No reply

I pulled down the shade and I turned off the light
Blackness for me, but it holds no fright
I dance with the darkness and my demons take flight
And I talk to the night
Oh, I talk to the night
You know, my tongue gets tied in that bright daylight
I talk to the night
I speak with the darkness
And I talk to the night
I speak with the darkness
And I talk to the night
I speak with the darkness
