Ukas dikt av Patti Smith og Bruce Springsteen: «Because the night»

Patti Smith er i byen. Hun signerer sin nyeste roman i flere bokhandler og har konsert på Sentrum scene i kveld og i morgen. Jeg gleder meg voldsomt til i morgen, for da har vi heldigvis fått billetter. Selvsagt bør en av hennes fineste låter være ukas dikt, og den er skrevet sammen med Bruce Springsteen. Så etter å ha lest teksten, kan du se Patti synge den både sammen med Bruce og noen andre av mine helter: U2.

Because the night

Take me now baby here as I am
Pull me close, try and understand
Desire is hunger is the fire I breathe
Love is a banquet on which we feed

Come on now try and understand
The way I feel when I’m in your hands
Take my hand come undercover
They can’t hurt you now,
Can’t hurt you now, can’t hurt you now
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

Have I doubt when I’m alone
Love is a ring, the telephone
Love is an angel disguised as lust
Here in our bed until the morning comes
Come on now try and understand
The way I feel under your command
Take my hand as the sun descends
They can’t touch you now,
Can’t touch you now, can’t touch you now
Because the night belongs to lovers …

With love we sleep
With doubt the vicious circle
Turn and burns
Without you I cannot live
Forgive, the yearning burning
I believe it’s time, too real to feel
So touch me now, touch me now, touch me now
Because the night belongs to lovers …

Because tonight there are two lovers
If we believe in the night we trust
Because tonight there are two lovers …
