Patti Smith - Because The Night Lyrics




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 ...

Patti Smith Because The Night Comments
  1. david campbell

    Music > antidepressants.

  2. The Glamazon Club

    Because Shes the Living Proof that Love Never Dies

  3. Stephen Mark

    Patti Smith killed this song. Her version is sexy, passionate, and powerful. Light years better than Natalie Merchant's bland white bread remake.

  4. Suzian Santos

    One of the sexiest musics already written ❤️

  5. Jaun romero

    En qué película salió últimamente??

  6. Rümeysa Özdemir

    Because The Night"

    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 ...

  17. tmichael80

    First heard this song at a Springsteen show in Passaic, NJ

  18. Esteban Posada Duque

    ... knew this song ... but came here 'cause of her former couple/partner the photographer ......

  19. Dakota Ch

    timeless!

  20. Dead Smoking

    Damn, her live performances of this song dont sound anything like this. Must have used auto tune/pitch correction for this in the studio. Imo

    Poppy Moppet

    This was recorded 40 years ago. People's voices change. She is in her 70s now.

    Dead Smoking

    @Poppy Moppet bc she didnt care about her art and let her vocals go to shit... you obviously dont listen to many vocalists

  21. Claus RX1

    Sie war damals so Sexy und ihre Stimme der Hammer

  22. Respected Public Intellectual Yagne Goosh

    This woman stole that song from 10,000 Maniacs. No originality.

  23. Elle y la luna

    I love this song!

  24. STEFAN THE DANE

    Is anyone listening in 2020?

  25. Stephen Peters

    Oh Yeah.........👍🏽

  26. Silvia Scala

    for ever young...

  27. Dan Gabor

    She "IS" everything about desire!

  28. John Kilbridge

    My first concert: Patti Smith Group for Wave 1979, Central Park, NYC

  29. 봄날의꿀벌

    One of the most influential figures in feminist movement in Rock and Roll history

    raulio81

    So the world has come to shit because of her too? Damn...

    Julen Lian Trehe

    @raulio81 shut up incel

  30. Denis Crepaldi

    Immensa

  31. beenCookingSince7

    Like Janis said... so they can't ever hurt you. Funny how when one teaches others to hear without listening they don't have a clue if they are speaking for themselves or the teacher is just waiting for them to understand.

  32. beenCookingSince7

    How sexual a beautiful woman is when fixing her hair.

    Respected Public Intellectual Yagne Goosh

    Hairy armpits are such a turn-on.

  38. andyjp5

    2.4k don't like this...how is this possible

  39. Gerry Leb

    Inside the heart of this skinny cute New Jersey girl burns an acetylene torch.

    Dalir Farzan

    She needs to shave her armpits.

    cookiecarooi

    @Dalir Farzan bullahit! Nobody needs to shave their armpits

  40. Ravin' Dave

    Anyone else think this is (one of) the most sensual song(s) ever written? Damn, them lyrics really hit the spot.

  41. cHubby Love1

    I didnt even know this song existed. And its 2019. Sounds very 70s

    Wackka Wack

    probably a reason for that

    dwwilliams19732013

    She's from the 80s

  42. Ertugrul NAZLI

  54. Melody Aiello

    I want a love like this... 😭

    Robert McDonald

    He’s right. I hope that the other sees the same passion and fire in the song that you do.

  55. Bud Oliver

    saturday night ! wow dear jan, can't wait..love bud

  56. Joanne Iles

    God how I love her 💕👌

  57. John Clements

    I liked this when I was still in school when it was new

  58. Howtech

    Who else is tired of seeing "anyone listening in 2019"?

    snikiforuk

    I'm listening in 2019...from 1980

    Thierry Schork

    2019 is sooo last year.
    2020 is all the rage today.

  59. Kevin Tanner

    I’m wondering how many people confuse this with the superior and fantastically more frequently played Natalie Merchant version.

    Ravin' Dave

    Absolutely nobody. Natalie Merchant does a credible job with it, but her too-soft vocal delivery just puts me to sleep. Patti Smith's version, with much more dynamic vocals, just has a timeless quality to it that makes it my favorite. More frequently played?; geez, I remember this version getting regular airplay on R&R radio stations when it first came out in the late 1970s.

  60. cloud reader

    Angel dis guis ed as lust said the hedonists recovery from a good deep cackling emotional studio voice with meanniing the night witches coming to get ya more then halfway part over lovers diving spitfire like wings scalped, did i mention the bare walled harbour of lovers treated nicely bow 1:39..--Bwaaaaa

  61. Philly Hayden

    ps you're brill

  62. Candace Shirley

    I love her sound but I always wanted to hand out an armpit razor and brush her hair

    George Broze

    You'll get over it.

  63. Pablo Rubio

    Anyone in 2020? ; )

  64. DiamondDog DiamondDog2

    My favorite song of '78

  65. steffen

  66. Onciconci

    Patricia Lee, in arte Patti Smith, oggi si è laureata a Padova.
    Il suo profilo Instagram è un compendio di letteratura contemporanea, ti insegna un inglese meraviglioso e tortuoso come il greco antico e schiude mondi (è stata 3 giorni a Trieste e ha scritto roba che da sola vale un Nobel).
    [Francesca Quaratino]

  67. Spermwhale1000

    I like her version better than Bruce's version.

    tolga mehmet kutlar

    Respect to Natalie Merchant and 10,000 Maniacs for remaking this, but no one can duplicate the passion and soul like Patti Smith put in this song.

  89. Deiform !!!!!!

    2.11.19 still absolutely brilliant

  90. Robert Wiesler

    Absolutely fantastic
    One of the best songs ever written
    This version is just perfect
    As Bono said:
    This is a Bruce Springsteen song
    And this is a Patti Smith song
    I listen to this and also to the
    version done by the BOSS nearly every day
    I have seen them both doing it live
    Absolutely impossible to decide
    which version is better

  91. Jeff Young
