the ecstacy of flight (i love the night) lyrics – chris de burgh

come to my door, meet me at midnight,
i can’t wait anymore, and after midnight
we must head for the town,
keep under cover till dawn
with a bagful of wine;

the night is alive, look in the shadows,
because now is the time, out in the shadows,
to be somebody else, a complete transformation
from the someone we are in the day;

i hear a noise – there is something going on;
i hear a voice – there is something going on;
i see the boys – there is something going on;
and something is happening to me, yea;

i love the night, i love the night,
i love the element of danger and the ecstasy of flight,
i love the night, i love the night,
i love to dance with a stranger and feel her delight,
and when the dancing is through, i kick off my shoes,
and i listen to the beating of my heart…

after the fall, then came the hunger
in the hearts of us all, ooh such a hunger
that begins after dark, hides in the heart
like a wolf that is waiting inside;

i see a light – there is something going on;
it’s getting bright – there is something going on;
i look outside – there is something going on;
and someone is calling to me;

i love the night, i love the night,
i love the element of danger and the ecstasy of flight,
i love the night, i love the night,
i love to be with a stranger and feel her delight,
and when the morning begins, i have to get in
before sunlight can fall upon my face;

i love the night, i love the night,
i love the element of danger and the ecstasy of flight,
i love the night, i love the night,
