Song Description

Everyone's going home after the dance in the local nightclub, so he asks her if it wouldn't be nicer to spend the night together making love. Dancing in a smoky nightclub is fine, but hey...!!

Story Behind the Song

It's a 'how-can-I-avoid-being-lonely', plus a 'I-know-you really-love-me ' type of song, the suggestion being "What can be more natural than going home together?"

Lyrics

1. It's time to remember that old moon shadow
And reach for the stars in our eyes,
'Cos the musicÂ?s stopped playing
And ev'ryone's saying goodbye.

Refrain. Who needs a smoky old nightclub,
Who needs to dance until dawn?
Who needs a smoky old nightclub
When we can make love all night long?

2. It's sad and it hurts me all the space in between us,
We're driftin' apart day by day.
You know my love keeps on burning
But you keep on turning away.

Refrain. Who needs a smoky old nightclub,
Who needs to dance until dawn?
Who needs a smoky old nightclub
When we can make love all night long?

3. So now as we're leaving
And you say it's all over
Do I see a tear in your eye?
The music's stopped playing
So won't you stop saying goodbye?

Refrain. ('Cos) Who needs a smoky old nightclub,
Who needs to dance until dawn?
Who needs a smoky old nightclub
When we can make love, with the stars up above?
Yes, we can make love all night long.
