"The Night" as written by Phillip Andrew Buckle and Andrew Peter Grant....
The day is the wife whom I elude
The one to whom I should be right
Although forewarned by peers and kin
I always get into the night
Mother always warned me such
Being a nocturnal soul
Besides just being simply strange
Spawns from some illness of the mind

the night, she calls me
She calls me, she calls me
She calls me, she calls me
She sways in her velvet dress
And pulls me towards her in the dark
While the others rest

heed the call the time has come
For all you children of the night
Gather 'round like suckling dogs
Mothers come she is the night
Come with me to the other side
Make the girl in black your bride

the night, she calls me
She calls me, she calls me
She calls me, she calls me
She sways in her velvet dress
And pulls me towards her in the dark
While the others rest

it just seems very strange to me
Not her quiet lonely streets
And draped in all her mystery
Could be so sweet and comforting

the night, she calls me
She calls me, she calls me
She calls me, she calls me
She sways in her velvet dress
And pulls me towards her in the dark
While the others rest

    General Comment"The day is the wife whom I allude"
    "The one to whom I should be right"
    It's "kin", not "king" and it's not "faults", it's "spawns".

    General CommentYou forgot the word "Right" at the beginning of the sing. That is the only really bad mistake that no one has corrected already. this song is referring to the night as a person, a lady at that (The night is a lady) and it tells what it is like to spend time with the night. the line "Mother always warned me such, being a nocternal soul, besides just being simply strange, spawns from some illness of the mind" is very personally true. My mother began telling me that when I was about five or so and I would slip out the dorr into the forests and remain there until rather early in the morning. Perhaps she was simply afraid that the wolves would eat me but she truly did think I was crazy and that I was genuinely odd. Then again, everyone who knows me tells me those things...
