Intro: Bm, G, A, Bm, G, A, Bm Verse: Bm G A Bm Take me now, baby, here as I am. G A Bm Pull me close try and understand. G A Bm Desire is hunger, is the fire I breathe. G A Bm Love is a banquet on which we feed. G A D A Come on now, try and understand Bm G A the way I feel when I'm in your hand. D G A Take my hand; come under cover. C Bm F# They can't hurt you now, can't hurt you now, can't hurt you now. Chorus: Bm G A Because the night belongs to lovers. Bm G A Bm Because the night belongs to lust. G A Because the night belongs to lovers. Bm G A Bm Because the night belongs to us. Second verse: Have I doubt when I'm alone? Love is a ring on the telephone. Love is an angel disguised as lust, here in our bed until the morning comes. Come on now, try and understand the way I feel under your command. Take my hand as the sun descends. They can't touch you now, can't touch you now, can't touch you now. Repeat chorus Ending: D A D A Bm A With love we sleep; with doubt the viscious circle turn and turns. D A Bm A D A Without you I cannot live, forgive the yearning, burning G D G I believe in time, too real to feel, Bm D G F# so touch me now, touch me now, touch me now. Repeat chorus and fade. [Patti Smith]
