here in our bed until the morning comes.

     D    A
With love we sleep;
     D         A              Bm       A
with doubt the vicious circle turn and turns.

Without you I cannot live,

forgive the yearning, burning

I believe in time, too real to feel,

so touch me now, touch me now, touch me now.

If we believe in the night we trust
Bm      G                    A
Because the night belongs to lovers.
Bm      G                    Bm
Because the night belongs to us.
