"The Night" as written by and Alejandra Estela Deheza Benjamin David Curtis....
The light of day
Gives me no relief
Because I see you
You in everything

You've frozen my thoughts
You've frozen me out
I'm in the same place
You left me, baby

Oh, our ending
Lit a fuse in my heart
Devouring, devouring
The night, the night
Chilled my bones with
A seething quiet, shaking me

Oh, our ending
Lit a fuse in my heart
Devouring, devouring
The night, the night
Chilled my bones with
A seething quiet, shaking me

Tell me, tell me
Since you went away
Does the space breathe?
Do you feel a change?
Is this the way
You thought it would be?
Do you feel the same
Without me, darling?

You have my arms
You have my legs
We are one contented skin
We are one continued pain
Oh, our meeting
Lit a fuse in my heart
Devoured me, devoured me

You have my arms (the light of day)
You have my legs
We are one contented skin (gives me no relief)
We are one continued pain
Oh, our meeting (tell me, tell me)
Lit a fuse in my heart
Devoured me (since you went away), devoured me

You have my arms (the light of day)
You have my legs
We are one continued skin (gives me no relief)
We are one continued pain
Oh, our meeting (tell me, tell me)
Lit a fuse in my heart
Devoured me, devoured me

    Song Meaningi cant help to think this song is about Claudia, Alejandra's twin sister and now defunct member of School of Seven Bells. It sounds like its about her leaving the group. "you have my arms, you have my legs", the twin reference. "oh our ending lit a fuse in my heart, devouring devouring." Claudia exiting the band. "tell me tell me since you went away.." Its sorta sad that she left, she always seemed like the outsider of the group in interviews.
