Ordinary night

I was standing by the Tower
I was keeping out of sight
While the children on the avenue
Sang their hymns to the night
Thereshe comes around the corner
Here she comes
At half-past eleven
Gliding slowly down the gleaming streets
And we know that this is heaven
Just an ordinary night

Had my share ofbad luck
That's why I've lived so long
Tried to hold it all together
But in the air I heard a song
Said you'd stay with me till morning
Cold eyes blink in acid light
Can't remember how I lost you
Now I've lost your number in a fight
Just an ordinary night
