Because the Night
Springsteen, Patti Smith
Take me now baby here as I am
Hold me close, try and understand
I work all day out in the hot sun
Break my back 'til the evening comes

Come on now try and understand
The way I feel when I'm in your hands
Take me now as the sun descends
They can't hurt us now,
They can't hurt us now
They can't hurt us now

Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

What I've got, I have earned
What I'm not, baby, I have learned
Desire and hunger is the fire I breathe
Stay in my bed 'til the morning comes

Come on now try and understand
The way I feel when I'm in your hands
Take my hand as the sun descends
They can't hurt us now,
They can't hurt us now,
They can't hurt us now,

(Chorus)

Your love is here and now
The vicious circle turns and burns without
And though I cannot live, forgive me now
The time has come to take the moment and
They can't hurt us now...

(Chorus)

Patti Smith's lyrics as used by Bruce Springsteen on the studio version released on The Promise

Take me now baby here as I am
Hold me close, try and understand
Desire is hunger is the fire I breathe
Love is a banquet on which we feed

Come on now try and understand
The way I feel when I'm in your hands
Take my hand come undercover
They can't hurt you now,
Can't hurt you now, can't hurt you now

Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

Have I doubt when I'm alone
Love is a ring, the telephone
Love is an angel disguised as lust
Here in our bed until the morning comes
Come on now try and understand
The way I feel under your command
Take my hand as the sun descends
They can't touch you now,
Can't touch you now, can't touch you now

Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

With love we sleep
With doubt the vicious circle
Turns and burns
Without you I cannot live
Forgive, the yearning burning
I believe it's time, too real to feel
So touch me now, touch me now, touch me now

Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

Because tonight there are two lovers
If we believe in the night we trust
Because tonight there are two lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us
