All Through The Night

Words & Music:

Jules Shear (Cyndi Lauper)


G               D                                     G

All through the night, I'll be awake and I'll be with you.

                D                                      G

All through the night, this precious time when time is new.

Em/G                        Bm

Oh, all through the night today,

                         C             Am

Knowing that we feel the same without saying.



G          Em/G                 C

We have no past, we won't reach back,

             Am          D           G

Keep with me forward all through the night.

            Em/G             C

And once we start, the meter clicks,

            Am          D           G

And it goes running all through the night.

         Em/G              Bm  D

Until it ends, there is no end.


All through the night, stray cat is crying so stray cat sings back.

All through the night, they have forgotten what by day they lack.

Oh, under those white street lamps

There is a little chance they may see.





Em/G                          Bm

Oh, the sleep in your eyes is enough.

                        C           Am

Let me be there, let me stay there awhile.
