"Hold Back the Night" as written by and Mark/pasqua Spiro....
I've been looking for an answer in the sky
Can you hear me? Cause I need a reason why
I think I'm in trouble, with my heart out on my sleeve
So I'm calling, 'cause I need her as I live and breathe

Don't let the sun go down, 'cause tomorrow she'll be gone

[Chorus:]

Give me one more day and I'll make her stay, hold back the night
If you're really there and you hear my prayer, hold back the night

Hold back the night, oh the night

Every minute, it gets closer to goodbye
Can't you give me just a few more hours to change her mind
Don't let tomorrow in, 'cause I just can't face it alone

I watch the light fading to black
I'm counting on you to build me a bridge, so I can bring her back

Don't let the sun go down, 'cause tomorrow she will be gone

(One more day, make her stay) hold back the night
If you're really there and you hear my prayer, hold back the night
