Patti Smith

Key: Bm
Intro: Bm, G, A, Bm, G, A, Bm 
 
Bm      G          A         Bm 
Take me now, baby, here as I am. 
        G             A    Bm 
Pull me close try and understand. 
          G              A      Bm 
Desire is hunger, is the fire I breathe. 
          G          A        Bm 
Love is a banquet on which we feed. 
G       A            D    A 
Come on now, try and understand 
    Bm    G                     A 
the way I feel when I'm in your hand. 
D       G                A 
Take my hand; come under cover. 
     C                   Bm                  F# 
They can't hurt you now, can't hurt you now, can't hurt you now. 
 
Chorus: 
 
Bm      G                 A 
Because the night belongs to lovers. 
Bm      G                 A  Bm 
Because the night belongs to lust. 
        G                 A 
Because the night belongs to lovers. 
Bm      G                 A  Bm 
Because the night belongs to us. 
 
Second verse: 
 
Have I doubt when I'm alone? 
Love is a ring on the telephone. 
Love is an angel disguised as lust, 
here in our bed until the morning comes. 
Come on now, try and understand 
the way I feel under your command. 
Take my hand as the sun descends. 
They can't touch you now, can't touch you now, can't touch you now. 
 
Repeat chorus 
 
Ending: 
 
     D    A         D          A                   Bm   A 
With love we sleep; with doubt the viscious circle turn and turns. 
D       A            Bm    A       D        A 
Without you I cannot live, forgive the yearning, burning 
    G     D        G 
I believe in time, too real to feel, 
   Bm            D             G              F# 
so touch me now, touch me now, touch me now.
