THE NIGHT HOLDS NO FEAR
Peggy Lee

The night holds no fear for the lover
for one of a love of his own
The night holds no fear for the lover
So love me and be mine alone

Hurry, hurry darling, love me
Come, be my all
Hurry, hurry darling, love me
Soon the night will fall

Be mine dear, and you will discover
that night is for dreams, not for tears
The night holds no fear for the lover
Be mine, and we’ll dream through the years

Hurry, hurry darling, love me
Come, be my all
Hurry, hurry darling, love me
Soon the night will fall

Be mine dear, and you will discover
that night is for dreams, not for tears
The night holds no fear for the lover
Be mine, and we’ll dream through the years
