A Night Like This


Nice night for a night like this
Lovers are with each other and in bliss
The crescent moon tonight is a shade of blue
Far away from the clouds of mist
I still remember the time we were with each other
Sharing our first kiss

There are times on a night like this
When I dream and stare off into space
Where I think of you and can almost see your pretty face
In my mind, sometimes I want us to be perfect
But sometimes that's not good enough
Or sometimes that's not meant to be
For you and for me

Someone's shooting out the lights with a shotgun on a night like this
While lovers pair up and dance in the streets
Passion runs wild tonight on a night like this
And heat is apparent on this summer night
While the lonely children are frolicking with the fairies
On a night like this

In my bedroom
I've closed the curtains
And I'm blowing out the candles by my bed
They've served their purpose for a night like this
While I sleep I'll be waiting for you to come back and return
Love may surely take time
But passion burns extremely well
And I'll be waiting for you
On a night like this

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
