Oh it's way past time,
When I should be home - in bed.
Standing here - on this moonlit street instead.
I want to drink the breeze in,
And bathe in lantern light.
Oh my reason's gone,
And I blame it on the summer night.
I see - couples pass,
And their eyes are - luminous.
And they smile at me as if to say,
"You're one of us."
What's going on here?
The street is full of lunatics,
Sharing some pagan right.
If we're here 'til dawn,
We can blame it on the - summer night.
I keep remembering I've,
Fiery pale in the moonlight,
Spinning my heart into an endless flight.
But I'm - not to blame,
It's just the shameless - summer night
I've got to stop this.
I've never felt so giddy.
Why are the stars so bright?
Through the streets I wonder and,
Blame it on the - summer night
Maybe the sun will come through,
Oh maybe the morning - will save me,
Clearing my mind,
Giving me back my fight.
But - for now I'm stuck,
In the sweet seductive - summer - night.
