Make the Night a Little Longer

Make the Night a Little Longer

Lyrics: 

My days are years
'Cause I don't see my baby till the stars are in the sky
And every night
When we can be together, time just seems to hurry by

So Lord, I beg you to
Make the night (just a little longer)
Make the night (just a little longer)
So I can kiss him (just a little longer)
And hold him tight (just a little longer)

You made the world the way you thought it should be
But can't you make the night a little longer for me

My nights are warm
'Cause when he comes and holds me, everything just feels so fine
But Lord, you know
I hate to see the sunrise that takes away that boy of mine

So Lord, I beg you to
Make the night (just a little longer)
Make the night (just a little longer)
So I can kiss him (just a little longer)
And hold him tight (just a little longer)
Just a little longer
Just a little longer

So Lord, I beg you to
Make the night (just a little longer)
Make the night (just a little longer)
So I can kiss him (just a little longer)
And hold him tight (just a little longer)
Then embrace his arms (just a little longer)
And all of his charms (just a little longer)
