Subject: Origins: In the darkness of the night
From: Fidjit

I have this song. Had it for years and years.
Now who can tell me who wrote it?

In the darkness of the night
I sometime wonder was I right
To leave you love, without a smile
Without a word, when all the while
It hurts inside to say goodbye
As you bid for another try
At loving me, And at pleasing me

Allthough I tried to heed you still
I fought a battle against your will
To keep me and to make me stay
Keeping bills and the seas at bay
To make of me an older man
Nothing, but an older man
And just for you. That's what you tried to do

So at the dawn of another day
I feel an ache about the way
I left you and I said goodbye
In case we meet and want to try
Again my love to build a wall
To keep out evreything, but what our love could mean
Oh! What our love could mean.

So. In the darkness of the night
I sometime wonder was I right
To leave you love, without a smile
Without a word, when all the while
It hurts inside to say goodbye
As you bid for another try
At loving me, And at pleasing me.

Anyone know who wrote this?

Chas

I have a slightly different version of that song on a Harvey Andrews LP "Writer of Songs". It says that all songs on the LP were composed by Harvey Andrews.

These are the words I have - written on a sheet that came with the LP.

In the darkness of the night
I sometimes wonder was I right
To leave you love, without a smile
Without a word, when all the while
It hurt inside to say goodbye
As you beg for another try
At loving me, And pleasing me

But though I tried to need you still
I fought a battle 'gainst your will
To tie me down and make me stay
To keep the hills and seas at bay
To make of me an only man
A loving but a lonely man
Meant just for you that's what you try to do

And now within an empty day
I feel an ache about the way
I left you and I said goodbye
In case we meet and want to try
Again my love to build a wall
To keep out ev'rything, but all our love could mean
Oh! What our love could mean.

So in the darkness of the night
I sometimes wonder was I right
To leave you love, without a smile
Without a word, when all the while
It hurt inside to say goodbye
As you begged for another try
At loving me and pleasing me.
