When The Night Comes Falling From The Sky (Springtime In New York, The Bootleg Series 1-3)

You can look out across the fields and see me returning
Smoke is in your eyes, you draw a smile
From the fireplace where right now my letters to you are burning
You’ve had time to think about it for a while

I’ve walked two hundred miles, now look me over
It’s the end of the chase and the moon is high
It won’t matter who loves who
You’ll love me or I’ll love you
When the night comes falling 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’d been flirting
With disaster that you somehow managed to escape

Well, I can’t provide for you no easy answer
Who are you that I should have to lie?
You’ll know everything, my love
Down below and up above
When the night comes falling from the sky

I can hear your trembling heart beat like a river
And recently you thought you’d seen it all
But you’re disappointed now in those who did not deliver
But it was you who set yourself up for a fall

Ah, 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 falling from the sky

In your teardrops, I can see my own reflection
Luck was with me when I crossed the borderline
I don’t want to be a fool that’s starving for affection
I don’t want to drown in someone else’s wine

For all eternity I think I will remember
That whirlpool of life that’s in your eye
You will seek me and you’ll find me
In the wasteland of your mind
When the night comes falling from the sky

Well, I gave to you my heart, like buried treasure
When suffering seemed to fit you like a glove
I’ve got so tired of those who use you for their own pleasure
Who thought they had a monopoly on love


Well, this time I’m asking for freedom
Freedom from a world that you deny
And you’ll give it to me now
Or I’ll take it anyhow
When the night comes falling from the sky

You can look out across the fields, see me returning
Smoke is in your eyes, you draw a smile
From the fireplace where my – all my letters to you are burning
You’ve had time to think about it for a while

I’ve walked two hundred miles, look me over
It’s the end of the chase, the moon is high
It won’t matter who loves who
Either you’ll love me or I’ll love you
When the night comes falling 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’d been flirting
With disaster that you somehow managed to escape

I can’t provide for you no easy answer
Who are you that I should have to lie?
You’ll know everything, my love
Down below and up above

When the night comes falling from the sky

I can hear your trembling heart beat like a river
Recently, you thought you’d known it all
But you’re disappointed now with those who did not deliver
It was you who 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
(Na na na na na na na)
Don’t look for me, I’ll see you
When the night comes falling from the sky

In your teardrops, I see my own reflection
Luck was with me when I crossed the borderline
I don’t want to be a fool that’s starving for affection
I don’t want to drown in someone else’s wine

For all eternity I think I will remember
That whirlpool of life that’s in your eye
You will seek me and you’ll find me
In the wasteland of your mind
When the night comes falling from the sky

Well, I gave to you my heart, like buried treasure
When suffering seemed to fit you like a glove
I’m so tired of those who used you for their pleasure
They thought they had a monopoly on love


This time I’m asking for freedom
Freedom from a world which you deny
And you’ll give it to me now
Or I’ll take it anyhow
When the night comes falling from the sky

When the night
When the night
When the night
When the night
When the night
When the night
When the night
When the night

You can look out across the fields, see me returning
Smoke gets in your eyes, you draw a smile
From the fireplace where all my letters to you are burning
You’ve had time to think about it for a while

I’ve walked two hundred miles, now look me over
It’s the end of the chase and the moon is high
It don’t matter who loves who
Either you’ll love me or I’ll love you
When the night comes falling 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’d been flirting
With disaster that you somehow managed to escape

Oh, well, I can’t provide for you no easy answer
Who are you that I should have to lie?
You’ll know everything, my love
Down below and up above
When the night comes falling from the sky

I can hear your trembling heart beat like a river
And recently you thought you’d seen it all
But you’re disappointed now with those who did not deliver
But it was you who
set yourself up for a fall

I’ve seen 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 falling from the sky

I don’t want to be a fool that’s starving for affection
I don’t want to drown in someone else’s wine

The whirlpool of life that’s in your eye
You will seek me and you’ll find me
In the wasteland of your mind
When the night comes falling from the sky

Though suffering seemed to fit you like a glove
I’m so tired of those who use you for their own pleasure

When the night comes falling
When the night comes falling from the sky

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 falling
When the night comes falling
When the night comes falling from the sky

I can hear your trembling heart beat like a river
You must have been protecting someone last time I called.
I’ve never asked you for nothing 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 falling
When the night comes falling
When the night comes falling 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 want to be a fool starving for affection
I don’t want to drown in someone else’s wine

For all eternity I think I will remember
That icy wind that’s howling in your eye
You will seek me and you’ll find me
In the wasteland of your mind
When the night comes falling
When the night comes falling
When the night comes falling from the sky

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

This time I’m asking 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 falling
When the night comes falling
When the night comes falling from the sky
