Lyrics:

Him: Hey, are you the one I dream about

Her: Baby I am

Him: I really feel the night

Can take away my doubt

Her: I’ll try and do what I can

Him: Every time I see you smile –

There is sadness in your eyes

Her: well I’ve been hurt before

Him: I know it’s nothing new – and time will make you realize

Her: We always wish for more

Both: we find we’re searching high and low and always looking for the right time

 

Both: Together we can make it through the night

 

Both: It’s the spirit of the night

Spirit of the night

Burning like St. Elmo’s fire

Spirit of the night

Takes our feelings so much higher

Her: It’s the spirit of the night

we can live our fantasy

Both: Spirit of the night

Burning in our ecstasy
