When the night is closing
Eyes are running wild
When I hear you humming
All night long

The sign I see it
Tell me am I true
All I need from you is
All I see

This city's paved with cold
Playboys buying fun
Seems there is no hunter left
Without his hunting gun

Can you feel the light?
The air is wild open
Oh, you see the light it's coming through
It's there in the distance
Always offered to me
Always coming over a hill

Oh, your see-saw smile
Lasts me all night long
Like a siren's curl
When the night is long

Now, come hold my hand
No bad vibe hearts
Hold my hand, you know
This journey could be long

Yeah, the seasons come in
All the nights are woven
All the nights, we'll see them through
Ah, no hundred men now
Would dare cut into us
We'll go on and see it through

(Belle)
(Une rose qui a joue son role)
(Mon Miroir)
(Mon clef d'or)
(Mon cheval)
(Et mon gant sont les cinq secrets de ma puissance)
Now, hold my hand
No bad vibe hearts
(Je voulais livrer)
(Il vous suffira de mettre ce gant)
(A votre main droite)
(Il vous transportera ou vous desirez l'etre)

When the night has come in
Your eyes are running wild
Then I hear you humming
All night long

Yeah, the sign I see it
Yeah, the times I see it
All I need to know from you
Is all I see

Can you feel the light?
The air is wild, open
Oh you see the light
It's coming through
It's there in the distance
Always offered to me
Always coming over a hill
Yeah, the seasons come in
All the nights are woven
All the nights, we'll see them through
Ah, no hundred men now
Would dare cut into us
We'll go on and see it through

Awesome Peter!
Great song, great album...a true original.
Outstanding song imo (Halloween's coming, we'll likely hear Bauhaus's Bela Lugosi's Dead - Yay : )
{#Daisy}If PM's "Indigo Eyes" and "Dragnet Drag" could be added, that would be wonderful...

The most unlikely (IMHO) was Hendrix opening for The Monkeys back in the day.  A friend's brother used to have a bootleg of their Ottawa show.

(and reading my mind, Bill starts playing "The Wind Cries Mary")

 
Just saw PM this last month, so good. Have been fan since Bauhaus. Met a twenty something that was introduced to him through that NIN show and she is now an uber fan. So fun to see a newbe falling for something so dear in ones heart from my own "child hood" Thank you Bill!
Murphy's voice is SO cool

Is this channelling the 80s bigtime, or what? I was surprised to see a 2011 release date for this song. Does anyone know who the French guy is who's been sampled in the background?

 
Hello, you were right about the 80s sound. "All Night Long" came out in 1988 on Love Hysteria.

I believe it is Jean Marais, from the 1946 movie "La Belle et la Bête" (Beauty and the Beast) by Jean Cocteau.

 
I was going to guess that movie although I've only seen small bits of it. 

Still from Cocteau's "Beauty and the Beast"
Mr. Extraordinary :)
Surely this song warrants a rating greater than a 6.6!!  And no, good people, I am not calling any of you Shirley (unless that is your actual name)!! {#Laughing}

Amazing song. Incredible album, next to Deep. Always wanted to hear more Peter Murphy, especially his new stuff. Great video too. Very noir with shoutouts to Cocteau.

He did not.  Love and Rockets is a alternative comic series by the Hernandez brothers and a band formed out of the remains of Bauhaus by Daniel Ash and David J.
Thank God for that, almost had to use the PSD button. Thought it was going to be Tracy Chapman.

I saw Stevie Ray Vaughn open for the moody blues....weird. SRV was great the MB so so much.
bowie clone.....next........altho the steel drums are a nice touch....
