The Night Called My Name

I would sit here and listen
To all of the noise
Sit here and watch
The girls and the boys
Sit here as always
Playing the game
But I’m needed outside
The night called my name.

I could stand here and argue
Pressing my view
Stand here and say
How it’s me and not you
Stand and discuss
Always the same
But I’ve got to be gone
The night called my name.

The night is a mistress
Silky and slow
When she calls to you gently
You just have to go.

You can stay and continue
But you’ll be on your own
I’ll be out in the air
Like a bird having flown
I could stay here I know
But that would be a shame
Cos the moon is out sailing
And the night called my name.
