Lyrics


Look out across the fields, see me returning

Smoke is in your eyes, you draw a smile

From the fireplace where my letters to you are burning

You've had time to think about it for a while


Well, I've walked two hundred miles, look me over

Its the end of the chase and the moon is high

It won't matter who loves who

You'll love me or I'll love you

When the night comes falling

When the night comes falling

When the night comes falling from the sky


I can see through your walls and I know you're hurting

Sorrow covers you up like a cape

Only yesterday I know that you've been flirting

With disaster you somehow managed to escape


Well, I can't provide for you no easy answers

Who are you that I should have to lie

You'll know all about it, love

It'll fit you like a glove

When the night comes falling

When the night comes falling

When the night comes falling from the sky


I can hear your trembling heart beat like a river

You must have been protecting someone last time I called

I've never asked you for nothing that you couldn't deliver

I've never asked to set yourself up for a fall


I saw thousands who could have overcome the darkness

For the love of a lousy buck, I've watched them die

Stick around, baby, we're not through

Don't look for me, I'll see you

When the night comes falling

When the night comes falling

When the night comes falling from the sky


In your teardrops, I can see my own reflection

It was on the northern border of Texas where I crossed the line

I don't want to be a fool starving for affection

I don't want to drown in someone else's wine


For all eternity I think I will remember

That icy wind that's howling in your eye

You will seek me and you'll find

Me in the wasteland of your mind

When the night comes falling

When the night comes falling

When the night comes falling from the sky


Well, I sent you my feelings in a letter

But you were gambling for support

This time tomorrow I'll know you better

Where my memory is not so short


This time I'm asking for freedom

Freedom from a world which you deny

And you'll give it to me now

I'll take it anyhow

When the night comes falling

When the night comes falling

When the night comes falling from the sky
