Lyrics 

This is the rhythm of the night

This is the rhythm of the night

You could put some joy upon my face

Oh sunshine in an empty place

Take me to turn to

And babe I’ll make you stay

Oh I can ease you of your pain

Feel you give me love again

Round and round we go

Each time I hear you say

This is the rhythm of the night

The night, oh yeah

The rhythm of the night

This is the rhythm of my life

My life, oh yeah

The rhythm of my life

Won’t you teach me how to love and learn

There’ll be nothing left for me to yearn

Think of me burn

And let me hold your hand

I don’t wanna face the world in tears

Please think again, I’m on my knees

Sing that song to me

No reason to repent

I know you wanna say it

This is the rhythm of the night

The night, oh yeah

The rhythm of the night

This is the rhythm of my life

My life, oh yeah

The rhythm of my life

This is the rhythm of the night

This is the rhythm of the night

This is the rhythm

This is the rhythm

This is the rhythm of the night

This is the rhythm

This is the rhythm

This is the rhythm of the night

I know you wanna say it

This is the rhythm of the night

The night, oh yeah

The rhythm of the night

This is the rhythm of my life

My life, oh yeah

The rhythm of my life

This is the rhythm of the night
