Miss you nights (Cliff Richard)


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 are your face
And the warm winds that embrace me
Just as surely kissed your face
Yet 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 a 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 comfort
I 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
Lay down all dreams and feelings once remembered
It’s just the same this miss you game
Yet these miss you nights are the longest
