The Jeff Healey Band – When the Night Comes Falling From the Sky (BO Road House) – 1989

    Paroles

    Look out across the fields, see me returning
    Smoke is in your eyes, you draw a smile
    From the fireplace where my letters to you are burning
    You’ve had time to think about it for a while

    Well, I’ve walked two hundred miles, look me over
    Its the end of the chase and the moon is high
    It won’t matter who loves who
    You’ll love me or I’ll love you
    When the night comes falling
    When the night comes falling
    When the night comes falling from the sky

    I can see through your walls and I know you’re hurting
    Sorrow covers you up like a cape
    Only yesterday I know that you’ve been flirting
    With disaster you somehow managed to escape

    Well, I can’t provide for you no easy answers
    Who are you that I should have to lie
    You’ll know all about it, love
    It’ll fit you like a glove
    When the night comes falling
    When the night comes falling
    When the night comes falling from the sky

    I can hear your trembling heart beat like a river
    You must have been protecting someone last time I called
    I’ve never asked you for nothing that you couldn’t deliver
    I’ve never asked to set yourself up for a fall

    I saw thousands who could have overcome the darkness
    For the love of a lousy buck, I’ve watched them die
    Stick around, baby, we’re not through
    Don’t look for me, I’ll see you
    When the night comes falling
    When the night comes falling
    When the night comes falling from the sky

    In your teardrops, I can see my own reflection
    It was on the northern border of Texas where I crossed the line
    I don’t want to be a fool starving for affection
    I don’t want to drown in someone else’s wine

    For all eternity I think I will remember
    That icy wind that’s howling in your eye
    You will seek me and you’ll find
    Me in the wasteland of your mind
    When the night comes falling
    When the night comes falling
    When the night comes falling from the sky

    Well, I sent you my feelings in a letter
    But you were gambling for support
    This time tomorrow I’ll know you better
    Where my memory is not so short

    This time I’m asking for freedom
    Freedom from a world which you deny
    And you’ll give it to me now
    I’ll take it anyhow
    When the night comes falling
    When the night comes falling
    When the night comes falling from the sky
