Adam dances down the stairs with the gold hat well in place
Sarah rises from her chair and calmly checks her face
For signs of madness or fatigue, but you can only see her smile
So she waits for him and something else
She’s been waiting for a while

The nights get longer and longer
The darkness stronger and stronger
I only want to see your face again
Well I know him and I know her
I know that strange kind of hunger
I step right out into the night again

But love’s not here tonight
I’ve been checking every corner in the fading light
Love’s not here tonight (x2)
But there are fireworks on the other side of town.
He thinks, please don’t let me down like that, this can’t be all!
She waits for his answer fo come out and hit the wall
Strange things happen every day, more so they do at night
So let’s compromise on staying friends I know you’ll be alright

The nights get longer and longer
The darkness stronger and stronger
I only want to see your face again
Well I know him and I know her
I know that strange kind of hunger
For that one kiss to make it right again

Till she cry, “Lover! Lover! Lover! I must have you!”
But love’s not here tonight
