  • 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 touch you now, can’t touch you now
    Because the night belongs to lovers ...

    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 tonight there are two lovers
    If we believe in the night we trust
    Because tonight there are two lovers ...
