"In The Night" as written by Ahmad Balshe, Ali Payami, Abel Tesfaye, Savan Kotecha, Peter Anders Svensson and Max Martin....
All alone she was living
In a world without an end or beginning
Baby girl was living life for the feeling
But I don't mind, I don't mind
And all the wrongs she committed
She was numb and she was so co-dependent
She was young and all she had was the city
But I don't mind, I don't mind

And I know that she's capable of anything, it's riveting
But when you wake up she's always gone, gone, gone

In the night she hears him calling
In the night she's dancing to relieve the pain
She'll never walk away (I don't think you understand)
In the night when she comes crawling
Dollar bills and tears keep falling down her face
She'll never walk away (I don't think you understand)

He sang a song when he did it
He was cold and he was so unforgiving
Now she dances to the song on the minute
Yeah, all the time, all the time
It make her weak when she hear it
And it got her on her knees like religion
She was young and she was forced to be a woman
Yeah, all the time, all the time

And I know that she's capable of anything, it's riveting
But when you wake up she's always gone, gone, gone

In the night she hears him calling
In the night she's dancing to relieve the pain
She'll never walk away (I don't think you understand)
In the night when she comes crawling
Dollar bills and tears keep falling down her face
She'll never walk away (I don't think you understand)

I don't think you understand

In the night she hears him calling
In the night she's dancing to relieve the pain
She'll never walk away (I don't think you understand)
In the night when she comes crawling
Dollar bills and tears keep falling down her face
She'll never walk away (I don't think you understand)

    General CommentI read that his girlfriend's mother has been hitting on him since her parents got divorced, so it's probably about Bella's parents' divorce and the aftermath of it.

    My InterpretationMore or less, she's a porn star of sorts. Or a stripper. Someone in the adult entertainment business, who's been abused by her either husband, father or boyfriend, and is suffering all-around from her work, her relationships and drug addiction.

    General CommentNo, she isn't a stripper or a porn star. This song is actually about Marylin Monroe and the sexual abuse she endured as a child.

    General CommentIt's about a woman who was abused either as a child or by a boyfriend/husband. She uses drugs to numb the pain and her memories and she dances at a club for money to support her habit and as a way to also numb the pain. She feels detached and self hatred so her body becomes both a weapon and a tool for her.
