THE VELVET UNDERGROUND - AFTER HOURS

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 havin such fun

I wish it could happen to me.

But if you close
the door
I'd never have to
see the day again

If you close

the door

The night could last

forever

forever

Leave the wine glass out and drink a toast to

never

never

Oh, someday I know someone will look into
my eyes and say

But if you close the door
I'd never have to see the day again

and the people on subways and
trains Looking gray in the rain

and the people on subways and
trains Looking gray in the rain

As
they stand disarrayed
over people
look wear
in the dark

And 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 havin such fun

I wish it could happen to me.

'cause if you close
the door
I'd never have to
see the day again'

I'd never have to see the day again.
(once more)

I'd never have to see the day again.

I'd never have to see the day again.
