"Because The Night" (live from the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame)

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

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 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

With love we sleep
With doubt the vicious circle
Turn 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 the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

Tonight we’re lovers
Help me believe in the night we trust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

Because the night
Because the night
Because the night
Because the night

(This song, written by Patti Smith and Bruce Springsteen, was performed by U2, Smith, Springsteen, and Roy Bittan live and can be found on the 25th Anniversary of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Concert album)
