late at night
(electronic)



i don’t plan or conspire

i don’t want to get no higher

it’s a lack of ambition

well they tell me that it’s missing



all the guns out on the western front are quiet now

well it’s nice to hear the world breathe a sigh



it’s like the colour of your skin

you know it doesn’t mean a thing

nor do the clothes that we’re wrapped in

it doesn’t matter if you’re thin



and though i lay awake at night

i know your arms will hold me tight

and i thank god we got it right

here in this city late at night



we are each like no other

we are unique to our mother

we are foals in the stable

but we leave home when we’re able



but we all need someone

like the earth needs the sun

and our fate will be found

in this life, on the ground



don’t you get it wrong



it’s like the colour of your skin

you know it doesn’t mean a thing

nor do the clothes that we’re wrapped in

it doesn’t matter if you’re thin



and though i lay awake at night

i know your arms will hold me tight

and i thank god we got it right

here in this city late at night



it’s like the colour of your skin

you know it doesn’t mean a thing

nor do the clothes that we’re wrapped in

it doesn’t matter if you’re thin



and though i lay awake at night

i know your arms will hold me tight

and i thank god we got it right

here in this city late at night



here in this city late at night

here in this city late at night

late at night

comment
this rollicking tune has some great harmonies and packs a real punch. it’s a shame that it was withdrawn as a single in the uk as it could have reached a respectable position; its two b-sides warning sign and king for a day were also strong and would have added weight to the promotional campaign. the aggressive, live-sounding single mix by stephen power is a highlight of the 2006 compilation get the message.
