"Tango In The Night" as written by and Lindsey Buckingham....
Listen to the wind on the water
Listen to the waves upon the shore
Try to sleep, sleep won't come
Just as I begin to fade

Then I remember
When the moon was full and bright
I would take you in the darkness
And do the tango in the night
Tango

I keep the dream in my pocket
Never let it fade away
Inside, outside
No loneliness in this dream

Then I remember
When the moon was full and bright
I would take you in the darkness
And do the tango in the night
Tango

    General CommentThe theme seem to be similar to ''Big Love'' - both songs focus on feeling lonely when being home alone, after losing (or refusing?) his ex-girlfriend and being in need for intimicacy / sex: ''I wake up with all that'' and ''tango'' being a passionate dance of two lovers.

    I love both songs dearly but it's so f*cking sad.
