Richard, Cliff - Miss You Nights Lyrics

I've had many times I can tell you
Times when innocence I'd trade for company
And children saw me crying
I thought I'd had my share of that
But these miss you nights are the longest

Midnight diamonds stud my heaven
Southward burning like the jewels that eye your place
And the warm winds that embrace me
Just as surely kissed your face
Yeah these miss you nights they're the longest

How I missed you I'm not likely to tell
I'm a man and cold daylight buys the pride I'd rather sell
All my secrets are a wasted affair
You know them well

Thinking of my going
How to cut the thread and leave it all behind
Looking windward for my compass
I'll take each day as it arrives
But these miss you nights are the longest

Lay down all thoughts of your surrender
It's only me who's killing time
Play down all dreams and themes once remembered
It's just the same this miss you game

Yet these miss you nights are the longest

Richard, Cliff Miss You Nights Comments
  1. Suzanne Robbins

    2020, and still back for more Cliff!

  2. The Jovial Brit

    I've been a singer, pianist and musician for 25 years and have this sort of singing voice because I've always preferred to sing songs from the 40's, 50's and pretty much songs that have this silky, strong vibrato. I'll be performing it live, tonight, for people ^.^

  3. Jake C

    I wasn't really a Cliff Fan, I'm in my thirties, I thought you had to be a lot older TBH, but I play guitar, and try to sing a bit, now and then. I played this, with a friend on piano, harmonically it wasn't too difficult, but boy when I tried to sing it, I couldn't come close, and that's when I became a fan of this great singer. Respect.

  4. Anthony Fawcett

    Whatever anyone thinks of this man his music,his voice is this song but my favourite is the next time ,"what a song".

  32. Fizza O

    This came out at the time we had just got married and I had to go back to complete my degree as I taken off a year sick. Every time I heard this on the radio I cried. That was the hardest year of my life apart from this year when I broke my knee and my poor mother died.

  37. Oliver Le Gear

    I'm not really a Cliff fan, but you'd have to be dead inside not to be moved by this performance.

    a truly great song that gets to your heart if u miss someone,theve all tried to bring down cliff through absurd allegations ,but all came to nothing ,the Man stands for decency and all those decades of great music,I respect you Mr Richard

  60. Gill W

    Like may people on here, this is by far my most favourite of all his songs. Now, thanks to the media b******s, and the BBC who made his life a misery, we have lost him to live in New York. I can't express how upset and sad I am for him, who entertained us and millions like us for years and years. I saw him at the BBC on Top of The Pops in the sixties when he first came on the scene, and loved and respected him for years. I hope all these nasty vindictive are satisfied now, and hope he is happy in New York. God bless you Cliff!.

  61. Edmund Fendel

    Beautiful song from Cliff the legend.

  62. Eberneezer Scrooge

    Tiny Tim saw me crying, I thought I'd been bitten by a snake, but the snake bite was a queen ant in my brain and I thought my name was Jake, yeah these ant pheromones make me psychotic.. Wawawawawawawa wawawawawwawa 😂😂🐜🐜🐜🐅🐯🐒🐵🏃🏃🏃🏃🏃🏃🙋🐯🐯🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍

  63. Marie Lester Moseley

  66. Tpviper

    Got to admit, i am not a big fan of Sir Cliff. But, this track is his best.

  67. Chrissie Auclair

  68. Melinda Gaac

  71. Eugene Barry

    This is still so, so good. Cliff Richard at his very best and this is a testament to his talent, great vocal and ability to give a great song that special emotion and feeling that separate the best from the rest. Thanks for the music Sir Cliff.

  72. dawn hawkins

    Mum picked this song for her funeral she sadly passed away last october ,and although i listen and shed a few tears it also brings me comfort xxx

    For my money, this is the best song he’s ever sung.

  74. Pauline Sanders

  76. Eugene Barry

    Perfection in the song, the performance and the emotion. A master of his craft with a God given gift of song so generously shared . You don't need dancers or bells and whistles when you are this good and Sir Cliff you are the best. May you live long, share more music and be happy . Enjoy the joy after your pain and always know that we trust and believe in you. Thank you.

  77. m g

    The vocals, production and arrangement are flawless.

  78. Rachel Louise Hallaron

    We had this song at my mums funeral along with izzy and dannie dancing in the sky she had a crush on cliff from being a little girl we sent her to a few of his shows she had all his music videos


    Cliff must be dedicated to cliff's dead dog 🐕 ? As he's never had a woman has he 😆 😆 😆

  80. Pia Hansen

    Goosebumps all over.....gorgeous song and that voice..Haaaaaaah

  81. Merle Perry

    Loved you and your music for 59 years you will always be no one to me ❤

  82. Jake C

    Cliff has said in the past that this was one of the nicest songs he had ever heard, and that it would of been a hit for anyone, but the singer and writer Dave Townsend said Cliff gave it something he hadn't even imagined when he wrote it. Songs are like babies to writers, and when he heard Cliff's interpretation ,he instantly knew it was Cliff's song, and helped produce it.

  83. irene Dire

    This is just so heavenly from Mr Richard

  84. Sancho O'Dell

    "These Mishue Knights are the longest". This feels like a Christmas song. Just the whole feel of it. When he sings about these Biblical 'Mishue Knights' Bright Knights form the night who come out to rescue these loved ones from bedrooms of old. Oh we will long for our own 'Mishue Knight' That's what I though he was singing about when I heard this as a kid. (A very similar misunderstanding of another song "Knights In White Satin" by The Moody Blues also conjured up similar  images of medieval Knights draped in white satin coming into bedrooms to bring salvation to loved ones everywhere!)

  85. Francis Formalhaut Moon

    Who's he singing to?
    A camel?
    It sure as hell isn't a woman!

  86. Kerry Louise McNulty

    Love this song, Cliff is fabulous, grew up listening to his lovely voice 🙂

  87. Irene Kent

    Sad song but miss a loved one

  88. Margaret Gaskell

    Still listening now ....memories come back ...🙏💕🌹........a most beautiful song

  89. Anne Dale

    my teenage crush!

  90. Panya Wong

    Most of Thai advertising are nonsence and stupid.

  91. Panya Wong

    เมื่อไรจะเลิกบร้าเกาหลีสักที ทำชื่อเสียงประเทศเสียหายหมดและยังไรสาระ

  92. patricia F

  93. Rosita Arciaga

  98. Tata Tata

  99. Jon Gowan

    Yes I’m 73 now, and yes I truly love listening to cliff to man sing, this music is the real music slow music not the music that you can not tell the words to it.

    Suzanne Robbins

    Jon Gowan I am 73, and love Cliff’s music! Nothing like getting lost in his music...when I can’t sleep I listen to him, and I feel better!
