Cliff Richard

Miss you nights

I've had many times, I can tell you,
times when innocence I'd trade for company
And children saw me crying
I thought I'd had my share of that
But these miss you nights are the longest.

Midnight diamonds stud my heaven,
southward burning like the jewels that eye your place
And the warm winds that embrace me
just as surely kissed your face
Yeah, these miss you nights, they're the longest.

How I missed you I'm not likely to tell
I'm a man, and cold daylight buys the pride I'd rather sell
All my secrets are a wasted affair - you know them well.

Thinking of my going
How to cut the thread and leave it all behind
Looking windward for my compass
I'll take each day as it arrives
But these miss you nights are the longest.

Lay down all thoughts of your surrender
It's only me who's killing time
Play down all dreams and themes once remembered
It's just the same this miss you game
Yet these miss you nights are the longest.
