Billy Joel: Until The Night


I never ask you where you go
After I leave you in the morning
We go our different ways to separate situations
It's not that easy anymore

Today I do what must be done
I give my time to total strangers
But now it feels as though the day goes on forever
More than it ever did before

Until the night, until the night
I just might make it
Until the night, until the night
When I see you again

Now you're afraid that we have changed
And I'm afraid we're getting older
So many broken hearts, so many lonely faces
So many lovers come and gone

I'll have my fears like every man
You'll have your tears like every woman
Today we'll be unsure, is this what we believe in
And wonder how can we go on

Until the night, until the night
I just might make it
Until the night, until the night
When I see you again

When the sun goes down
And the day is over
When the last of the light has gone
As they pour into the street
I will be getting closer
As the cars turn their headlights on
While they're closing it down
We're gonna open it up
And while they're going to sleep
We'll just be starting to touch
I'm just beginning to feel
I'm just beginning to give
I'm just beginning to feel
I'm just beginning to live
Before I leave you again
Before the light of the dawn
Before this evening can end
I have been waiting so long

Until the night, until the night
I just might make it
Until the night, until the night
I'll just keep holding on
Until the night, until the night
When I see you again

Wikipedia: Until The Night
"Until the Night" is a song written by Billy Joel and included on his album 52nd Street, released in 1978. The single reached #50 on the UK Singles Chart.

It is also included in his four-CD and one-DVD collection titled My Lives, a referral to his hit song "My Life."

Although it is not considered as a top "hit" by Joel, it is well known to his fans. The song is a precursor to the 1960s-flavored album An Innocent Man.

Joel wrote this song to remind his loved one to not forget about their relationship every time both of them go out for the day. Joel has also said that "Until the Night" is a tribute to the Righteous Brothers.
