This Long Night (Dancing With The Dark)
Words & music Janis Ian

Take these burdens from my heart
Lay them down beside the sea
They are tearing me apart
Let them drift away from me
Take this sorrow from my soul
I have prayed to find some rest
It’s a weight I cannot hold
It lays heavy on my breast

      This long night cannot last forever
      This long night, sorrow shields the stars
      Give me light
      Illuminate the secrets of my heart
      Dancing with the dark

Take these tears that blind my eyes
I have lived too long in shadows
Unbind these shuttered skies
My horizons are too narrow
Take my weariness and sorrow
Take the troubles I have borrowed
They will all be here tomorrow

      This long night cannot last forever
      This long night, sorrow shields the stars
      Give me light
      Illuminate the secrets of my heart
      I'm dancing with the dark
      Dancing with the dark
