THE NITE STEALS ANOTHER HEART

(STEVE DAFOE 2005) (COPYRIGHTED)


FMaj7-- BARET'D ON 5th, 4th, 5th & 2nd (FOR CHORUS)


VERSE 1:

FMAJ7 BARET 2nd FRET( FMAJ7)

SHE SEES THE GLOW OF A BRIGHT STAR
HOPING THIS WILL BE HER TIME
AS SHE WALKS TO HER FAVORITE BAR
HEARS THE MUSIC, FEELS THE ENERGY
G C Fmaj7
OH, THE LURE OF THE MATING MYSTERY
WITHOUT KNOWING ANYONE'S HISTORY

BUT SHE LOOKS ANYWAY FOR MR. RIGHT
Fmaj7(3rd Fret) Fmaj7(2nd Fret) Fmaj7
PUTS HER HEART ON THE LINE FOR TONITE....


CHORUS 1:

FMaj7-- BARET'D ON 5th, 4th, 5th & 2nd


AND THE NITE STEALS ANOTHER HEART
AS EMPTY WORDS ARE SPOKE IN PASSION...
HOLLOW PROMISES IN THE MORNING AS THEY PART
DARK MOMENTS IN A SUNRISE SO BRIGHT...
'CAUSE THE NITE JUST STOLE ANOTHER HEART...

VERSE 2:

FMAJ7 BARET 2nd FRET( FMAJ7)

HE CHECKS HIS TIMECARD...DONE FOR ANOTHER NITE..
PHONE'S HIS WIFE, SAYS HE'LL BE WORKIN' A LITTLE LATE
TAKES HIS RING OFF WHERE A PROMISE WAS MADE...
QUICKENS HIS STEP AS HE HITS HIS FAVORITE BAR..

G C Fmaj7
SEES HIS FRIENDS....HIGH FIVES ALL AROUND...
CHECKS THE GIRLS OUT DANCIN' TO THE RHYTMIC SOUNDS

THEN HE SEES HER BEAUTY JUST STANDING THERE...
Fmaj7(3rd Fret) Fmaj7(2nd Fret) Fmaj7
OBLIVIOUS TO HIS HUNGRY STARE.......


CHORUS 2:

FMaj7-- BARET'D ON 5th, 4th, 5th & 2nd


AND THE NITE IS GOING TO STEAL ANOTHER HEART
AS EMPTY WORDS ARE SPOKE IN PASSION...
HOLLOW PROMISES IN THE MORNING AS THEY PART
DARK MOMENTS IN A SUNRISE SO BRIGHT...
'CAUSE THE NITE JUST STOLE ANOTHER HEART...




VERSE 3:

FMAJ7 BARET 2nd FRET( FMAJ7)

SHE SEES HIS STARE.....HER PULSE QUICKENS...
MEETS HIM ON THE DANCE FLOOR
SCARED AND THRILLED BY WHAT THE NITE HAS IN STORE
IGNORES THE IMPRESSION ON HIS RING FINGER
G C Fmaj7
THE COSTS FOR LOOKING FOR HER LOVE...
THE THRILL OF THE HUNT HIS ONLY LURE...

THEY LEAVE THE ENERGY OF DANCE BEHIND
Fmaj7(3rd Fret) Fmaj7(2nd Fret) Fmaj7
TO FIND A ROOM, FOR JUST HIM AND HER....



CHORUS 3:

FMaj7-- BARET'D ON 5th, 4th, 5th & 2nd


AND THE NITE STEALS ANOTHER HEART
AS EMPTY WORDS ARE SPOKE IN PASSION...
HOLLOW PROMISES IN THE MORNING AS THEY PART
DARK MOMENTS IN A SUNRISE SO BRIGHT...
'CAUSE THE NITE JUST STOLE ANOTHER HEART...








VERSE 4:

FMAJ7 BARET 2nd FRET( FMAJ7)

SHE LOOKS AT THE CLOCK, WAY PAST MIDNITE
CHECKS ON HER TWO KIDS, FINALLY ASLEEP...
THEY WAITED FOR DADDY, LONG INTO THE NITE SO DEEP
NOTHING NEW...THESE LONG NIGHTS
G C Fmaj7
SHE FEELS THE PAIN OF BETRAYAL............
BUT SHE HURTS MORE FOR THEIR LITTLE ONES...

WAITING FOR HIM AND ALL HIS PROMISES
Fmaj7(3rd Fret) Fmaj7(2nd Fret) Fmaj7
KNOWING HE'LL ONLY BE HOME WHEN HIS HUNGER IS DONE...




CHORUS 4:

FMaj7-- BARET'D ON 5th, 4th, 5th & 2nd


AND THE NITE STEALS HIS CHILDRENS HEARTS
AS HIS EMPTY WORDS ARE SPOKE DURING THE NIGHT...
HOLLOW PROMISES TO MOM IN THE MORNING LIGHT
BUT DARK MOMENTS IN A SUNRISE SO BRIGHT...
'CAUSE THE NITE STOLE HIS LITTLE ONES HEARTS...
'CAUSE THE NITE STEALS A LOT MORE HEARTS...
