The Ecstasy Of Flight (I Love The Night)
Words & Music By Chris de Burgh
 
Bm                         G
Come to my door, meet me at midnight,
          Bm                 G
I can't wait anymore, and after midnight
               Em
We must head for the town,
                                   C
Keep under cover till dawn
                            Em
With a bag full of wine;
 
The night is alive, look in the shadows,
Because now is the time, out in the shadows,
To be somebody else, a complete transformation
                                                  Em/B - Em
From the someone we are in the day;
 
                                     Em           D         C
I hear a noise - there is something going on;
Em                                                D         C
I hear a voice - there is something going on;
                                     G                       A
I see the boys - there is something going on;
         C                                  B       
And something is happening to me, yeah;
 
Em                G   Em                G       
I love the night, I love the night,
               Am                                   B
I love the element of danger and the ecstasy of flight,
                    Em                    G
I love the night, I love the night,
                    Am                             B
I love to dance with a stranger and feel her delight,
                       C                               
And when the dancing is through, I kick off my shoes,
           G                                      B       Em
And I listen to the beating of my heart...
 
After the fall, then came the hunger
In the hearts of us all, ooh such a hunger
That begins after dark, hides in the heart
Like a wolf that is waiting inside;
I see a light - there is something going on;
It's getting bright - there is something going on;
I look outside - there is something going on;
 
And someone is calling to me;
I love the night, I love the night,
I love the element of danger and the ecstasy of flight,
I love the night, I love the night,
I love to be with a stranger and feel her delight,
And when the morning begins, I have to get in
Before sunlight can fall upon my face;
 
I love the night, I love the night,
I love the element of danger and the ecstasy of flight,
I love the night, I love the night...
