Because Tonight

After Because the Night by 10,000 Maniacs

 

Take me now, Baba, here as I am

Hold me close, help me understand

Your desire’s my hunger; it’s the fire I breathe

Love is a banquet on which we feed

 

Come on down, help me understand

The way I feel under Your command

Take my hand, take me under Your cover

Maya can’t hurt me now

 

Because tonight belongs to lovers

Because tonight belongs to us

Because tonight belongs to lovers

Because tonight belongs to trust

 

If I have doubt, Baba, when I’m alone

Your Love comes through and then I am shown

Love is an angel, sometimes in disguise

Love comes directly when I look in Your eyes

 

Come on down, help me understand

The way I feel under Your command

Take my hand, take me under Your cover

Maya can’t hurt me now

 

Because tonight belongs to lovers

Because tonight belongs to us

Because tonight belongs to lovers

Because tonight belongs to trust

 

With love we breathe, with doubt the vicious circle turns and burns

Without You, I cannot live, forgive the yearning burning

I believe in Love so real I feel

You should take me now, take me now, take me now

 

Because tonight belongs to lovers

Because tonight belongs to us

Because tonight belongs to lovers

Because tonight belongs to trust
