Because The Night

Patti Smith & Bruce Springsteen

 

Bm    G    A    Bm        G    A    Bm

 

Bm        G            A            Bm             G                  A      Bm

Take me now, baby, here as I am.  Pull me close; try and understand.

Desire is hunger, is the fire I breathe.  Love is a banquet on which we feed.

Bm        G                D       A         Bm      G                  D        A

Come on now, try and understand the way I feel when I'm in your hand.

Bm        G             D     A

Take my hand; calm undercover.

         C                        Bm                       F#

They can't hurt you now, can't hurt you now, can't hurt you now.

 

CHORUS:

Bm              G         A          Bm                         G         A          Bm

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 hurt you now, can't hurt you now, can't hurt you now...

 

CHORUS

         D         A              D            A                Bm       A

With love we sleep; with doubt the vicious circle turns & turns.

       D         A     D           A              Bm         A

Without you I cannot live, forgive, the yearning, burning.

         G    D          G

I believe in time, too real to feel,

     Bm                D                 G                  F#

So touch me now, touch me now, touch me now.

 

CHORUS
