1. Oh, the night is my world, city light, painted girl,

††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††† Am†††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††† G

††† in the day nothing matters, itís the night time that flatters.

 

†††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††† Bm†††††††††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††† Bm

2. In the night no control, through the wall somethingís breaking,

††††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††† Am††††† ††††††††††††††††††C††††††††††††† G

††† wearing white as youíre walking, down the street of my soul.

 

††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Bm

3.†††††† You take myself, you take my self control,

Em††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Bm

††† you got me living only for the night

D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am

††† before the morning comes, the storyís told,

C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

††† you take myself, you take my self control.

 

†† Em†††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††Bm

4.†††† Another night, another day goes by,

Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Bm

††† I never stop myself to wonder why.

D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am

††† You help me to forget to play my role,

C†††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††G

†††† you take myself, you take my self control.

 

Em††† Bm†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em

I,†† I live among the creatures of the night,

†† Bm††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D††††††† Am

I havenít got the will to try and fight against a new tomorrow,

††††††† Am†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††† G

so I guess Iíll just believe it that tomorrow never comes.

††††† †††††Em††††††††† Bm†††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††Em

A safe night, Iím living in the forest of the dream,

††† Bm††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††D††††††† Am

I know the night is not as it would seem, I must believe in something,

††† †††††Am †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††C††† †††††††††††††††††G

so I make myself believe it that this night will never go.
