I wear my sunglasses at night
So I can so I can
Watch you weave then breathe your story lines
And I wear my sunglasses at night
So I can so I can
Keep track of the visions in my eyes

While she's deceiving me
It cuts my security has
She got control of me
I turn to her and say

Don't switch the blade on the guy in shades oh no
Don't masquerade with the guy in shades oh no
I can't believe it!
'Cause you got it made with the guy in shades oh no

And I wear my sunglasses at night
So I can so I can
Forget my name while you collect your claim
And I wear my sunglasses at night
So I can so I can
See the light that's right before my eyes

While she's deceiving me
She cuts my security
Has she got control of me
I turn to her and say

Don't switch the blade on the guy in shades oh no
Don't masquerade with the guy in shades oh no
I can't believe it!
'Cause you got it made with the guy in shades oh no
'Cause you got it made with the guy in shades oh no

Oh I say I wear my sunglasses at night
I wear my sunglasses at night
I wear my sunglasses at night
I say it to you now
I wear my sunglasses at night
I wear my sunglasses at night
I wear my sunglasses at night
I cry to you
I wear my sunglasses at night
I wear my sunglasses at night

    General Comment:Cool song. I heard it on the radio, when I was in California, last month.
    I could def. see a new version of this become a hit at the clubs in Europe.

    General Comment:In the 1980s, sunglasses were a common fashion for people who wanted to adopt a "tough guy" persona (note all the cop shows from that era -- Simon & Simon, Miami Vice, etc. -- where the lead characters wore shades). So I think this song is about a guy who wears shades as a way of hiding his insecurity after learning that his girlfriend is cheating on him. He's trying to pretend that he's a "tough guy" to hide the fact that his girlfriend's affair is disturbing him.

    General Comment:it's talking about the government robbing the people of the personalities, and making them metaphorically "wear sunglasses at night". the first time he tried to release sunglasses at night her was told it would not sell because it was to government originated so he made the lyrics different without changing the real meaning watching witch was more apperent in the video, heres the link: youtube.com/…

    General Comment:I think this song is referencing the days of film noir. She's the femme fatale. He's the clueless detective wearing his sunglasses at night to create a faux sense of mystery. He's shocked when she betrays him and he gives her one of those old movie "Don't fuck with me!" speeches.

    General Comment:trying to decipher this, or anything else, released in the Eighties is impossible. the songs were fun but absurd.

    i am going to start a college course on Duran Duran. what the hell did "The Reflex" mean anyway?
