The reason the night is so long by Rainer Maria
oh the reason the night is long
is very simple.
oh i miss you when i'm at work.
oh and i miss you when we fight, and you leave.
honey, i confess, i stole your heart.
and honey, i confess that it was criminal.
but i've been captured, i'm paralyzed.
and i've been disarmed by your charm.
oh the reason the night is long is very simple.
i imagine, tonight, that we can get along.
that nothing i can do with you is wrong, tonight.
but if i'm careful at sunset, if i'm mindful at dawn,
(clouded minds up north could
sometimes produce rain and lightning. )
if it's ok to touch you,
it's alright to think "electricity".
oh the reason the night is long is very simple
maybe it hasn't been so long.
maybe this dim time is just twilight.
