At Night

This song is by The Cure and appears on the album Seventeen Seconds (1980).

Sunk deep in the night
I sink in the night
Standing alone
Underneath the sky
I feel the chill of ice
On my face
I watch the hours go by
The hours go by

You sleep
Sleep in a safe bed
Curled and protected
Protected from sight
Under a safe roof
Deep in your house
Unaware of the changes at night
At night

I hear the darkness breathe
I sense the quiet despair
Listen to the silence at night
Someone has to be there
Someone has to be there
Someone must be there
