Alone In The Night - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

The cold in your eyes
Like the misty breath of a whisper
On an ice-cold morn
The cold in your face
Like a dagger drawn
Like a flashing blade
In a killer blow
We were never lovers
And silently i froze within
The gaze from your eyes
That summer night
In the dark of the night
All alone in the night
In the dark of the night, calling
All alone in the night for your love
All alone in the night
I need you to hold me

Timeless arrows carved through
Broken hearts of stone
Shadows moving slowly across the ground
A cold reminder of the way
Things used to be
Now i feel the shadows
Moving over me
I searched in vain for love
When true love i had found
Like a blind man i could never see
Those timeless arrows pierce my soul
Now you're gone
Ageless shadows closing in
Won't let me be
Only you set me free

The cold in your eyes
Like the misty breath of a whisper
On an ice-cold morn
You told me it was over
And silently i froze within the gaze
From your eyes
That summer night

In the dark of the night, calling
All alone in the night, for your love
In the dark of the night, crying
All alone in the night for your love
In the dark of the night, calling
All alone in the night, for your love
In the dark of the night, crying
All alone in the night
I need you to hold me...
