[E]    [A]    [B]    [E]    [A]    [B]    
[E]    [A]    [B]    [A]    [E/G#]    [F#m]    [Am]    
When the [E]day is done and there's [G#m]nowhere to run (nowhere to run)
And the [A]people of the city have all [B]lost and won
In your c[E]ity dress you [G#m]stand and stare (you stand and stare)
And you [A]smoke another cigarette and [B]comb your hair
And the [A]light (The Light) tha[E/G#]t shines (That Shines)
[F#m]Paints a trace of[B] sadness
On the s[A]treet (The Street) [E/G#]I wait (I wait)
[F#m]But I can't seem to [B]get to you. [A]    

oh, you [E]start to sway, check your[G#m] Cartier (it's gettin' late)
'Cos i[A]t's getting late, [B]you can't afford to wait
So you [E]move along where it's [G#m]going on (it's going on)
And [A]the people of the[B] night are playing 'till the dawn
And the [A]sun (The Sun) that [E/G#]shines (That Shines)
[F#m]Paints a trace[B] of sadness
In your [A]eyes (Those eyes) that [E/G#]cry (That Cry)
[F#m]Wishing and [B]hoping
[A]Oh...

[E]Sweet, sweet is the [A]night
Now [B]you are [E]near
[E]Dark, dark were the [A]days
They [B]disapp[E]ear  
[E]Sweet, sweet is the [A]night
Now [B]you are [A]ne  [E/G#]ar.      [F#m]    [Am]    

Well you [E]did your thing and you [G#m]lost your wings (you did your thing)
And [A]you hurt so ba[B]d you lost everything
And the [E]tears that fall on the [G#m]city wall (the city wall)
Will [A]fade away wit[B]h the rays of morning
[A]light (that light) that[E/G#] shines (that shines)
[F#m]Paints a sm[B]ile across your pretty
[A]face (Your Face) I [E/G#]know (I know)
[F#m]Everything [B]is alright
[A]Alright...

[E]Sweet, sweet is the [A]night
Now [B]you are [E]near
Dark, dark were the [A]days
They [B]disap[E]pear
Sweet, sweet is the [A]night
Now [B]you are [A]ne  [E/G#]ar. [F#m]    [Am]    

[E]Sweet, sweet is the [A]night
Now [B]you are [E]near
Dark, dark were the [A]days
They [B]disapp[E]ear  
Sweet, sweet is the [A]night
Now [B]you are [C]near.
[A] Now you are [F#m]near. [B]    [E]    [C]    [E]    



When the day is done and there's nowhere to run (nowhere to run)
And the people of the city have all lost and won
In your city dress you stand and stare (you stand and stare)
And you smoke another cigarette and comb your hair
And the light (The Light) that shines (That Shines)
Paints a trace of sadness
On the street (The Street) I wait (I wait)
But I can't seem to get to you.

oh, you start to sway, check your Cartier (it's gettin' late)
'Cos it's getting late, you can't afford to wait
So you move along where it's going on (it's going on)
And the people of the night are playing 'till the dawn
And the sun (The Sun) that shines (That Shines)
Paints a trace of sadness
In your eyes (Those eyes) that cry (That Cry)
Wishing and hoping
Oh...

Sweet, sweet is the night
Now you are near
Dark, dark were the days
They disappear
Sweet, sweet is the night
Now you are near.

Well you did your thing and you lost your wings (you did your thing)
And you hurt so bad you lost everything
And the tears that fall on the city wall (the city wall)
Will fade away with the rays of morning
light (that light) that shines (that shines)
Paints a smile across your pretty
face (Your Face) I know (I know)
Everything is alright
Alright...

Sweet, sweet is the night
Now you are near
Dark, dark were the days
They disappear
Sweet, sweet is the night
Now you are near.

Sweet, sweet is the night
Now you are near
Dark, dark were the days
They disappear
Sweet, sweet is the night
Now you are near.
Now you are near.
