"Night Comes In" as written by and Richard Thompson....
Night comes in, like some cool river
How can there be, be another day?
Take my hand, oh real companion
And we'll dance, dance till we fade away

Oh, the songs pour down like silver
They can only, only break my heart
Drink the wine, the wine of lovers
Lovers tired of being apart

Dancing till my feet don't touch the ground
I lose my mind in dance forever
Lose my mind in dance forever
Turn my world around
Turn my world around

Oh, this night is like no other
And this room is ringing in my ears
And these friends will never leave me
And these tears are like no other tears

Dancing till my feet don't touch the ground
I lose my mind in dance forever
Lose my mind in dance forever
Turn my world around
Turn my world around

    General CommentOne crucial verse—the one which tears apart everything preceding it—was omitted:

    I may find that street tomorrow
    Leave the shadows of my lonely room
    See my one: my one and only
    Heart and soul; I'm coming soon

    The evocation of deep, meaningful ties—of friendship, and love—remains. But only as an imaginary and desperate hope.
