You And The Night And The Music
Stanley Black & His Orchestra Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You and the night and the music
Fill me with flaming desire
Setting my being completely on fire
You and the night and the music
Thrill me but will we be one
After the night and the music are done?

Until the pale light of dawning and daylight
Our hearts will be throbbing guitars
Morning may come without warning
And take away the stars

If we must live for the moment
Love till the moment is through
After the night and the music die
Will I have you

Until the pale light of dawning and daylight
Our hearts will be throbbing guitars
Morning may come without warning
And take away the stars

If we must live for the moment
Love till the moment is through
After the night and the music die
Will I have you

You and the night and the music




You and the night
You

Overall Meaning

In the lyrics of "You And The Night And The Music" by Stanley Black & His Orchestra, the song captures the intense and passionate emotions evoked by a moment filled with love and music. The imagery of "You and the night and the music" symbolizes the intoxicating combination of being with a loved one in the enchanting setting of the night, heightened by the presence of music. The mention of being filled with "flaming desire" and being set on fire conveys the overwhelming intensity and passion experienced in this moment.


The lyrics express a sense of thrill and anticipation, wondering if the connection felt in the moment will continue beyond the night and the music. The uncertainty of whether the intimacy shared will lead to a lasting bond adds a sense of vulnerability and longing to the song. The question posed - "Thrill me but will we be one after the night and the music are done?" - captures the fleeting nature of such magical moments that leave one questioning their permanence.


The reference to the transient nature of time, with the impending dawn and daylight, highlights the ephemeral quality of the experience. The hearts described as "throbbing guitars" suggest a sense of heightened emotions and passion that may be short-lived. The imagery of morning taking away the stars serves as a metaphor for the potential loss of the enchanting moments once daylight breaks, underscoring the impermanence of the night and the music.


The repeated refrain emphasizing the need to live in the present moment and love fully until it passes reflects a bittersweet acknowledgment of the fleeting nature of love and passion. The song contemplates the possibility of losing the connection once the night and the music fade away, leaving behind a sense of yearning and uncertainty. Overall, the lyrics of "You And The Night And The Music" beautifully capture the intoxicating mixture of love, music, and the transient yet profound emotions experienced in a fleeting moment of connection.
