T-Bone Burnett — When The Night Falls lyrics

As the night falls, as the sun starts to sink
And the street lights blink on the town's yawning
I climb down my stairs to the empty avenue
And follow my shadow till morning

'Cause when the night falls, it falls on me
And when the day breaks, I'm in pieces
When the night falls, it falls on me
And I'm so lonely, I'm so lonely

As I walk past the theaters and stores
And the whores that now work where we first met
I want to hold you so bad that it hurts
And it only gets worse when the sun sets

'Cause when the night falls, it falls on me
And when the day breaks, I'm in pieces
When the night falls, it falls on me
And I'm so lonely, I'm so lonely

And then I see you and call out your name
But down the street you keep walking away
And when I reach you
A stranger looks over her shoulder then it starts all over

Now the moon is a thin silver line
Disappearing behind a skyscraper
And I climb my stairs to my dark hotel room
Through the litter of Sunday newspapers

'Cause when the night falls, it falls on me
And when the day breaks, I'm in pieces
When the night falls, it falls on me
And I'm so lonely

I'm so lonely, I'm so lonely
I'm so lonely, I'm so lonely, so lonely
