"Bring on the Night" as written by and Gordon Matthew Sumner....
The afternoon has gently passed me by
The evening spreads its sail against the sky
Waiting for tomorrow, just another day
God bid yesterday good-bye

Bring on the night
I couldn't spend another hour of daylight
Bring on the night
I couldn't stand another hour of daylight

The future is but a question mark
Hangs above my head, there in the dark
Can't see for the brightness is staring me blind
God bid yesterday good-bye

Bring on the night
I couldn't spend another hour of daylight
Bring on the night
I couldn't stand another hour of daylight

I couldn't spend another hour of daylight
I couldn't stand another hour of daylight

    General Comment“Bring On the Night” is also the name of a documentary about the making of the first Sting album. Not only is some time spent in the studio (much of was recorded in an interesting mansion), but there is also some interesting information about what was going on in the lives of the members of his band during that time, including Sting's son, Jake being born. More recently Jake, an aspiring filmmaker, ala his mother, Trudie, was treated to a showing of the documentary at his 21st birthday party.

    General CommentBring on the Night is actually an older Police song, that Sting did live after he left The Police. The song is about the execution of Gary Gilmore.
