Look out across the fields, see me returnin'
Smoke is in your eyes, you draw a smile
From the fireplace where my letters to you are burning
You've had time to think about it for a while

Well, I've walked two hundred miles, look me over
It's the end of the chase and the moon is high
It won't matter who loves who
You love me or I love you

When the night comes fallin'
When the night comes fallin'
When the night comes fallin' from the sky

I can see through your walls and I know you're hurting
Sorrow covers you up like a cape
Only yesterday I know that you've been flirting
With disaster you somehow managed to escape

Well, I can't provide for you no easy answers
Who are you that I should have to lie?
You'll know all about it, love
It'll fit you like a glove

When the night comes fallin'
When the night comes fallin'
When the night comes fallin' from the sky

I can hear your tremblin' heart beat like a river
You must have been protecting someone, last time I called
I've never asked you for nothin' that you couldn't deliver
I've never asked you to set yourself up for a fall

I saw thousands who could have overcome the darkness
For the love of a lousy buck, I've watched them die
Stick around, baby, we're not through
Don't look for me, I'll see you

When the night comes fallin'
When the night comes fallin'
When the night comes fallin' from the sky

In your teardrops, I can see my own reflection
It was on the northern border of Texas where I crossed the line
I don't wanna be a fool starving for affection
I don't wanna drown in someone else's wine

For all eternity I think I will remember
That icy wind that's howlin' in your eye
You will seek me and you'll find me
In the wasteland of your mind

When the night comes fallin'
When the night comes fallin'
When the night comes fallin' from the sky

Well, I sent you my feelings in a letter
When you were gamblin' for support
This time tomorrow I'll know you better
When my memory is not so short

This time I'm askin' for freedom
Freedom from a world which you deny
And you'll give it to me now
I'll take it anyhow

When the night comes fallin'
When the night comes fallin'
When the night comes fallin' from the sky
