SHEET OF NIGHT LYRICS JOHN MARK MCMILLAN

 

The devil’s dealing dirty

In broken hearts and counterfeit currency

The living isn’t easy

When a heart’s regret can tax the air you breathe

 

But like diamonds we shine

Up against the sheet of night

The jet-black sheet of night

We overtake the cityscapes

We scale the heights

We break but we don’t die

 

Whoa we’ve got a blood

We’ve got a love that’ll brave the flood

Whoa we’ve got a blood

We’ve got a love that’ll brave…

And the wind will shake you like a tambourine

The dogs will leave you hungry

And your superiors will tax the blood you bleed

 

But like diamonds we shine

Up against the sheet of night

The jet-black sheet of night

We overtake the cityscapes

We scale the heights

We break but we don’t die

 

Whoa we’ve got a blood

We’ve got a love that’ll brave the flood

Whoa we’ve got a blood

We’ve got a love that’ll brave the flood

 

But like diamonds we shine

Up against the sheet of night

The jet-black sheet of night

We overtake the cityscapes

We scale the heights

We break but we don’t die

 

The devil’s dealing dirty

In broken hearts and counterfeit…
