Lyrics

Whoa, here it comes
Here comes the night, here comes the night
Whoa-whoa-whoa-yeah

I could see right out my window walking down the street my girl with another guy
His arm around her like it used to be with me, whoa, it makes me want to die

Yeah-yeah-yeah well, here it comes
Here comes the night, here comes the night
Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa-yeah

There they go, it's funny how they look so good together, wonder what is wrong with me
Why can't I accept the fact she's chosen him and simply let them be

Whoa-whoa-whoa well, here it comes
Here comes the night, here comes the night
Whoa-whoa-whoa-yeah

She's with him, he's turning down the lights and now he's holding her the way I used to do
I could see her closing her eyes and telling him lies exactly like she told me too

Yeah-yeah-yeah well, here it comes
Here comes the night, the long, the long and lonely night
Night, night, night, night, night, night
Whoa, here comes the night, the long, the long and lonely [fades out]
