NIGHT
Patty Griffin


Night you'll come and cover me

Cold coffee spills all over me

It's only hours until the day

You make it look so far away

Night you come and sing the songs

Of birds that have no eyes

Of birds that never fly

Of birds that tell me lies

And the night and I go hand to hand

Breast to breast

Woman to woman

Night and I go quietly

We go softly

Screaming all the way

Night is watching from a tower

Turns on the electric fence

A night can make you disappear

Without a trace of evidence

Night sounds like a judgement

And nobody speaks on your behalf

And you hear yourself calling out loud

And you hear the night laughing back

And the night and I go hand to hand

Breast to breast

Woman to Woman

The night and I go quietly

We go softly

Screaming all the way

Night you know how I forgot

It's only hours until the day

So hard to remember that

It's hard to see a night that way
