Song Lyrics

[Patti]
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

[All]
Come on now try to 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

[Bruce]
Have I doubt when I’m alone
Love is a ring, the telephone
Love is an angel disguised as lust
Here in our bed ‘til the morning comes

[All]
Come on now try and understand
The way I feel under your command
Take my hand as the sun descends
They can’t hurt/touch you now, they 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

And love is here
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

[Patti]
Touch me now, touch me now
Touch me now, hey

[All]
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

[Bruce]
Because tonight there are two lovers
If we believe in the night we trust
[Patti
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

[Bono]
Oh-oh…

[Patti]
If we 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

[Bono]
