It's Gonna Be A Long Night - Gary Portnoy - Original Artist - Trivia of the week



"It's Gonna Be A Long Night" comes from the season 1 Episode "Expose" where it was performed by Lori Singer.

 Lyrics:
The moon's up and the sun's down
And a thousand starry eyes have caught me crying
You don't die of a broken heart
You just lie down and give up trying

And its gonna be a long night
Its such a long hard fight
Keeping the teardrops out of sight
Waiting for morning light
Its gonna be a long night

Its all gone but the memories come back to me in scattered pieces
Your eyes shine your smile glows
And my loneliness for you increases

And its gonna be a long night
Its such a long hard fight
Keeping the teardrops out of sight
Waiting for morning light
Its gonna be a long night

The moon's up and the sun's down
And a thousand starry eyes have caught me crying
You don't die of a broken heart
You just lie down and give up trying

And its gonna be a long night, long night
Its such a long hard fight
Keeping the teardrops out of sight
Waiting for morning light
Its gonna be a long night
