lyrics

Heat of the Night

The evening came upon this town
It was moving like a river.
Took the streets without a sound.
A cool embrace, a gentle shiver.

A head will turn, a glance is met
Within this endless maze.
If something burns, the fire set
Is lost within the haze.

Drifting through the twilight.
Through the darkened streets deserted.
Flowing under pale lamplight
Where strangers pass with eyes averted.

It pushes on straight through the crowd,
Defenses raised up high.
You sense a passing shadow
From the corner of your eye.

Out from the cool of the evening
Into the heat of the night.
Out from the cool of the evening
Into the heat of the night.

A line across the gilded page
Divides the past from what comes after.
While settles on this urban stage
A growing hush that chills the laughter.
Someone’s yelling down the alley
There’s a welling deep inside
That rises to the surface
And it rides in with the tide.

Out from the cool of the evening
Into the heat of the night.
Out from the cool of the evening
Into the heat of the night.

The music’s hot.
The dancers sweat.
They’re trying their best to forget.
The circle is broken; the battle is met.
The temperature rises
The closer and closer they get.

The evening came upon this town
It was moving like a river.
It was moving like a river.
It was moving like...
