"In The Heat Of The Night" lyrics

In The Heat Of The Night

In the heat of the night
When you know it ain't right
But you do what you wanna do
You do what you feel
But no one can feel like you

In the summertime city
Ain't it a pity?
There's so much to tie you down
You're leaving tonight
For somewhere you can't be found

While down at the end of town
At a pool hall where they all hang around
You can hear them talking
About girls they knew
Talking about what they're gonna do
Then you ask yourself
Is this where you belong?
Is it right or is it wrong?
Does it matter what's right?
In the heat of the night

Ah, in the streets tonight
Under the neon lights
You're searching for something new
Nothing is real
But no one could feel like you

They say eagles fly
In this red hot sky
But were they just passing through
Or did they look down
And see what you found was true?

But still in the back of your mind
You've got something to believe in
But there's so much to find
As the bright lights dim
And the night closes in
You thought everything has ended
But it's yet to begin
And you ain't see nothing yet
But what you see you won't forget
You say

"Why, baby, why
Did it take you so long
To want something more?
Why, baby, why
Did you never got off on this before?
Why, baby, why?
And here it is
The life you've been waiting for
Why, baby, why
Standing in front of you
Like an open door"

And you ask yourself
Is this where you belong?
Is it right
Or is it wrong?
And does it matter what's right?
In the heat of the night

In the heat of the night
When you know it ain't right
But you do what you wanna do
You do what you feel
No one can feel like you
