"cool night" as written by and Paul Davis....
I sometimes wonder why
All the flowers have to die
I dream about you
And now, Summer's come and gone
And the nights they seem so long
Come on over tonight
Come on over

It's gonna be a cool night
Just let me hold you by the firelight
If it don't feel right you can go

Oh, when the cool night brings back memories
Of a good life when this love was not so old

Oh, I won't talk about the past
How love's supposed to last forever
And you, don't have to take a stand
Lay out any plans
Come on over tonight
Come on over

    General Commentthis song is very nostalgic to me. I hear Paul Davis's voice and it takes me back to when I was a kid hearing my mother play this on Saturday mornings while she cleaned the house. I agree that it has a haunting quality that can easily take you back.

    General CommentI agree with the other comments, too. This song certainly is sad and haunting. The idea of love grown old and the singer's appeal to his (still?) girlfriend to just come over and simply let him hold her... If I'm in a melancholy mood, this song can bring tears to my eyes. (One of his other huge hits, "I Go Crazy", has a similar theme, but in that song he has broken up with her and she has a new love. He meets her again after some time and realizes she still has his heart.) In "Cool Night", I like to imagine that she comes over and they get romantic by the fire and rekindle the flame they had!

    General CommentThis song has angelic powers. One extremely hot night, my dog (Maltese-poodle mix) was clearly suffering from the effects of heat stroke. I had Sirius XM's Yacht Rock Radio on in the background as the AC was on full blast and Cool Night came on. Within minutes, he was back to his old self again. Thank you Paul Davis for your heavenly gift on behalf of Charlie the Maltipoo. To this day, he wags his tail to the blissful rhythm when I play his favorite summer jam. Because of the raw, magnetic emotional power of this song that I have felt firsthand, I'd say Paul's invitation to the female muse was well-received on that particular fall night. Long live the smoothest era in musical history, the late 70's/early 80's am gold.
