cheat the night lyrics – deborah allen

cheat the night

(deborah allen – rafe vanhoy)

the sun is going down now sinking like my heart
nights are getting longer now that we’re apart
darkness is a prison that holds me with your memory
this time i’m getting out before it comes and turns the key

i’m going to cheat the night
so i can make it until the morning’s light
cheat the night

so i’m dusting off my courage painting on a smile
gonna try to find somebody to hold me for awhile
i don’t need the moon reminding me that you’re gone
even if i’m lonely alone

maybe if the evening provides me with somebody new
i can make them think i’m finally getting over you
i can cheat the night
so i can make them think i’m doing alright
