"Still of the Night" as written by and David/sykes Coverdale....
In the still of the night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door
In the still of the night
I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more

In the shadow of night
I see the full moon rise
Telling me what's in store
My heart start aching
My body start a shaking
And I can't take no more, no, no

Now I just want to get close to you
An' taste your love so sweet
And I just want to make love to you
Feel your body heat

In the still of the night
In the still of the night
Over here baby

In the heat of the day
I hang my head down low
And hide my face from the sun
Through the light of the day
Until the evening time
I'm waiting for the night to come
Ooh, baby

In the still of the night
In the cool moonlight
I feel my heart is aching
In the still of the night

Ooh, baby, Ooh, baby
Can't keep away
Need you closer
Can't keep away, can't keep away, can't keep away
Oh, can't keep away, no

You gotta give me love
You gotta give me some lovin' everyday
Can't keep away, no

Ooh, baby, ooh Lord, ahh
Get over here, baby

In the still of the night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door
In the still of the night
I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more

Ooh, mama

Now I just wanna get close to you
An' taste your love so sweet
And I just wanna make love to you
Feel your body heat

In the still of the night, ooh yeah
In the still of the night, I will be sneakin' 'round your door
In the still of the night
In the still of the night

Still of the night, still of the night, still of the night
Still of the night, still of the night, still of the night
Still of the night, still of the night, still of the night
Still of the night, still of the night, still of the night
Still of the night, still of the night, still of the night

    General CommentGothic feel
    .A little vampiric - the contrast of how he feels alive in the night and the dark sensuality; but lethargic in the day and must hide from the sun. And the desperate need.

    General CommentUh, yeah... This aint no ballad....

    And the violin bow in the video was just for looks, it wasnt played that way with the guitar. It was an actual string section (violins, cellos, etc) that played that part on the album. That is "that kick ass sound" you hear, 'genius'. lol

    General CommentWow, first poster is an obvious mouth-breather. Ballad, lol.

    This is a song about David Coverdale's raging sex mania.

    Cool song, I could personally have done without the quiet part where he sounds like he's jerking off. "Caaan't keep away,,,ohhhh."

    But the violin and the rest of the song are tight, awesome.

    General Commentthis is a great song.i love the sound of it.and it is apperently based off of led zepplin's black dog.so it looks like all of you are right about the led zepplin shit.but i never heard about plant being pissed off about it.still its a great song.oh yeah and that whole thing about the violin part,its true that it was just done for show on the guitar in the video,but i heard that its actually multiple synthesisers and keyboards that played it.not an actual violin like who ever it was that said it.i could be wrong though

    General CommentThis is the greatest sex song ever. I think it's either about the guy wanting to have rough sex or about him having a lover that can't get enough, or maybe both
