about

Originally performed by The Velvet Underground. Written by Lou Reed.

lyrics

If you close the door, the night could last forever
Leave the sunshine out and say hello to never
All the people are dancing and they're having such fun
I wish it could happen to me
But if you close the door, I'll never have to see the day again

If you close the door, the night could last forever
Leave the wine glass out and drink a toast to never
Well, someday I know someone is gonna look into my eyes and say,
"Hello, you're my very special one."
But if you close the door, I'll never have to see the day again

Dark party bars, shiny Cadillac cars, and people on subways and trains
Looking gray in the rain as they stand disarrayed
But people look well in the dark

If you close the door, the night could last forever
Leave the sunshine out and say hello to never
All the people are dancing and they're having such fun
I wish it could happen to me
But if you close the door, I'll never have to see the day again
I'll never have to see the day again
I'll never have to see the day again
