Cliff Richard - Miss you nights
Tekst en muziek: Dave Townsend
(1975)






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 lie the jewels that eye your place
Summer warm winds that embrace me
Just as surely kissed your face
Yeah, these ‘miss you nights’, they’re the longest



How I missed you
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
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 windwards for my compass
I take each day as it arrives
But these ‘miss you nights’ are the longest



Lay down
Lay down all thoughts of your surrender
It’s only me who’s killing time
Play down
Play down all dreams and themes once remembered
It’s just the same
This ’miss you game’



Yeah, these ‘miss you nights’ are the longest
