a night on the river lyrics – chris de burgh

naked and frozen at the side of a lake
i think i’ve gone and made my big mistake
i took her swimming, we had a fight
now my clothes and the lady are well out of sight

and it looks like i’m heading for a night on the river
under the moon and the stars
looks like i’m heading for a night on the river
me and my beating heart, singing in the dark

oh, oh, oh, oh

naked and frozen at the side of the lake
if she was here i wouldn’t hesitate
to tell her how, the way things are
with a long conversation in the back of a car

looks like i’m heading for a night on the river
under the moon and the stars
could be i’m heading for a night on the river
just me and my beating heart, singing in the dark

oh, oh, oh, oh

i think she owes me an explanation
she’s got the whip hand in this situation
if i try to tell her just the way i feel
it could start the whole thing all over again, yeah

ooh, i think i’m heading for a night on the river
under the moon and the stars
could be i’m heading for a night on the river
but i see the lights of a car, shining in the dark

oh, could be we’re heading for a mmm
under the moon and the stars
could be we’re heading for a mmm
just you and me and our beating hearts
we’re singing in the dark

oh, oh, oh, oh
oh, oh, oh, oh
oh, oh, oh, oh
