THE  ROOF  OF  THE  NIGHT 
by The Barking Dogs (Album : Spasm)
words & music : Hugo Scott

[Intro]

Dm A7 Dm A7


[Verse]

Dm                    C#m
When the night comes down I can't sleep,
     Dm                    A7
For the lights in the town are far too steep,
    Dm
We'll slide down the ropes of the rain,
       Em
And we'll steal all the steam from the trains,
     Dm              A7
And the Star of the East shines pale,
                    Dm A7
While the cold whistles weep.


[Chorus]

        F                                                               
Then we'll dive right off the roof of the night,
     Am
'Til we find the deepest deeps,
    G                       
We're going straight to hell,
     Gm
And the tolling of the bell,
    C               A7
Can't stop our midnight creep.


[Verse]

Dm                                C#m
All our time flows out beyond our grasp,
          Dm                           A7
So I'll slide down your skin 'til I'm home at last,
            Dm
And there's no turning back to the start,
          Em
When the burning begins that could tear us all apart,
            Dm
Then we'll drowse asleep,
        A7                      Dm  A7
On the soft golden sands of the dawn.


[Chorus]

           F
And we'll dive right off the roof of the night,
         Am
'Til we find the deepest deeps,
             G
Beneath the blazing neon stars,
         Gm
Are the cut-throats and the bars,
        C                 A7
And the faces that we'll keep.


[Verse]

Dm
One short moment's all that it takes,
        A7
To catch the flashing of your eyes,
        Dm        A7
One long hour is all that we need,
                       Dm
To fire up our bodies' desires,
One short night is all that it takes,
                A7
to turn the winter snows to summer rain,
        Dm
And one long daydream's
A7             Dm  D7
All that we've left to remain.


[Instrumental]

Gm Dm Gm A7 Gm Dm A7 Dm
