Barlow, Gary - Something About This Night Lyrics




I can see them,
See them forming perfect lines,
Ladies dressed up to the nines,
Gentlemen and Philistines.

I can hear them,
Everyone's a critic here,
Whispering it loud and clear,
Is this the failure of the year.

Oh, in any other career you would know,
Know where you're going to,
In any other career they would show you respect,
Oh, but here they're never going to.

Something about this night,
That you just can't forget,
They sip champagne, smoke cigarettes,
Win or lose you wouldn't bet,
Cause there is something about this night,
All actors call to one,
Chorus line, prepare for song,
Is it too late to change everyone?

There's only one night to impress unreasonable expectations,
Something about this night, oho
Something about this night,
With only one night to address unreasonable expectations,
Something about this night, oho
Something about this night.

I can see them,
Reaching for their daggers now,
Hoping I would land face down,
Ready to paint me as a clown.

I can feel them,
Yawning, calling for the end,
Oh, they're sharpening their pens,
Using all my blood instead of ink.

Oh, in any other career you would know,
Know where you're going to,
In any other career they would show you respect,
Oh, but here they're never going to.

Something about this night,
That you just can't forget,
They sip champagne, smoke cigarettes,
Win or lose you wouldn't bet,
Cause there is something about this night,
All actors call to one,
Chorus line, prepare for song,
Is it too late to change everyone?

There's only one night to impress unreasonable expectations,
Something about this night, oho
Something about this night,
With only one night to address unreasonable expectations,
Something about this night, oho
Something about this night.

It's a fight, it's a shove,
It's a labour of love,
It's a journey to know where you've seen,
It's over, it's thankless,
I have taken my chances.
Does anyone know what I mean?

If there's ever a time I should stay low,
If there's ever a time I should say no,
Waiting for sixhundred people to make up their minds,
Is why there's something about this night - yeah.

Cause there's something about this night,
That you just can't forget,
They sip champagne, smoke cigarettes,
Win or lose you wouldn't bet,
Cause there is something about this night,
All actors call to one,
Chorus line, prepare for song,
Is it too late to change everyone?

There's only one night to impress
unreasonable expectations,
Something about this night, oho
Something about this night,
With only one night to address unreasonable expectations,
Something about this night, oho
Something about this night, oho
Something about this night,
Something about this night.
