Night comes in, like some cool river
How can there be, be another day?
Take my hand, oh real companion
And we'll dance, dance till we fade away

Oh, the songs pour down like silver
They can only, only break my heart
Drink the wine, the wine of lovers
Lovers tired of being apart

Dancing till my feet don't touch the ground
I lose my mind in dance forever
Lose my mind in dance forever
Turn my world around
Turn my world around

Oh, this night is like no other
And this room is ringing in my ears
And these friends will never leave me
And these tears are like no other tears

Dancing till my feet don't touch the ground
I lose my mind in dance forever
Lose my mind in dance forever
Turn my world around
Turn my world around

    General Comment:In the lyrics above, the final verse does not appear. I feel as if these stanzas change the meaning of absolutely every word sung before them:

    Well. I may find
    That street tomorrow
    Leave the shadow
    Of my lonely room

    See my one
    My one and only
    Heart and soul
    I'm coming soon

    My Interpretation:[I wasn't allowed to post this, previously. So I posted only my addition to the lyrics. I'll try again, to find out whether it's a message-length limit, or some other reason I'm getting the error:
    "We had some trouble submitting your comment. Please try again."

    Here goes:

    Shortly before beginning work on this album, Richard had become a Sufi. For those not familiar: Sufism is a mystical tradition within Islam.
