Lord Huron - When The Night Is Over Lyrics

My one and only love
I've been lonely long enough
Will I find you when the night is over?
Tell me where did you go?
I've been searching high and low
I have only 'til the night is over

In every window, I pass
Your reflection in the glass
Makes me wonder if my mind is going
Shadows shifting in the rain
Slowly driving me insane
By the stars above, I know we were in love
I have only 'til the night is over

I feel the weather change
I hear the river say your name
I watch the birds fly by
I see an emerald in the sky

Now the trail has gone cold
I don't know where else to go
And my time, I fear, is nearly over
When the ocean drinks the sky
And the city winks its eye
When the night is done, you'll vanish in the sun
Will I hold you when the night is over?

Am I lost inside my mind?
There's an emerald in the sky

I hear the river say your name
By the stars above, I know we were in love
I hear the river say your name
I have only 'til the night is over

    When the night is over-you may meet me in woods for I've already searched the ghosts on the shore at the ends of earth. Help me, for now I'm lost in time & space having learnt ancient names at the Yawning grove. All I remember is "The night we met".

  10. Evelyn Simpson

    hes music isn't a song, it's a whole feeling

  11. Evelyn Simpson

  13. vloid 42

    Where can I find some guitar tabs for this on

  14. Tib

    "I see an emerald in the sky" ..when night meets day, a green flash they say, can be seen from the bay (my favorite part)...his time has ran dry...for her...forever...a loss in the blaze...and more so...a soul completely cold and......


  15. The Last Cowboy

    Am i Lost inside my mind?
    There's an emerald in the sky!
    I hear the river saying your name...
    By the stars I know we were in love

  21. anjali sharma

    He -"When the night is over, meet me in the woods.
    The birds are singing at night, and in the wind i sense you,
    cause i am fool for love.But you are already in the yawning grave, but i could be there too with you,
    Cause i'm the world ender baby,
    i am coming for you.
    I feel you whisper my name from a pure black void ."

    She-"You are still stuck to the night we met. Nothing's waiting for us in the great sky
    Life is equal to dust in the balancer's eye. Its all hurricane and frozen pines.
    But don't worry my dear, there is a way out,
    and through that I'll be back one day ,in the light of Emerald star,
    and surely i'll wait by the river and when you come there,
    i would sing for you a lullaby,
    and together we will be lost in time and space,
    and like an endless maze
    i would follow you through the ends of the Earth
    and our lonesome dreams will end together...
    every eye would remember the sight of the ghost on the shore."

    He-"The stranger is lurking by, snooping on us, listening to our secret of life,
    he just wanna be a man who lives on forever
    but brother hear me, La Belle fleur savage...as us you are cursed to die one day, and until the night turns go away.
    The stranger decides its time to run, caught two lovers love like ghosts that lit a fire,
    alas i am cursed to die one day but that's okay, now i would have to find my spark soon..

  45. Sylvia Cederholm

    People with good taste in Music, knew this band before "the Night we met" Got populor on that shitty tv show

    Lick My Sweetroll

    I don't understand why people get so salty about people that got introduced to LH by that shitty tv show. I got introduced to LH by that shitty tv show and I could give a damn about that, just glad I heard them at all, life changing music. Stop being so pretentious with your
    "I knew this band before *insert most popular song*, so I'm their best fan and have the superior music taste". Just stop being so selfish and be glad that more people are listening to LH in the first place.
    I agree that shitty tv show is shitty and good morning to yah, I'm running on 3 hrs of sleep.

  86. Steph T

    My best friend and I listened to this song while cuddling- falling in love. It was a night I’ll never forget.. I could feel our spirits connecting. But later his ex- that he felt incredibly guilty for- came back into his life after seeing he was moving on, so he cut me out and said we were never to speak again. This song brings back painfully lovely memories

  87. gary vevang

    The best most surreal song ever.
