BEFORE THE NIGHT

In a most unlikely scene

In a place I'd never been

It was something less than chance that we would meet

And the more we talked we knew

That the things we shared were few

And it was with that thought I headed down the street


When her driver pulled up slow

And asked me did I know

Of a place where we might watch the valley lights.

I could only feel the chill

Of a heart that would have killed

To be with a princess on a summer night


CHORUS

Oh Julie

You had to know right then

That only for this time we could be right

And you knew and I knew too

That before the sun come through

We'd be back to where we were before the night


INSTRUMENTAL VERSE


Well like a movie sure enough

When the sun came up

It was as if the night had never even come

So I took whats left of me

And my drunken memory

And I stumbled back to where I'd started from


CHORUS


And you knew and I knew too

That before the sun come through

We'd be back to where we were before the night
