Song Lyric Sunday: Football (apparently) – ‘End Of The Night’

I originally categorised the overall overall theme for Jim’s Song Lyric Sunday challenge this week’s as ‘Aspects’: the key words are ‘bottom’, ‘end’, ‘middle’, ‘side’ and ‘top’. Although it seems it refers to Football terms. I had not spotted that, I must say.

My immediate thought was ‘The End’ by The Doors, but I’ve used that before. However, here is another Jim Morrison song that also fits the bill. This appeared on the group’s eponymous debut album in early 1967. It was also the B-side to the single ‘Break On Through’.

Authorship is attributed collectively to ‘The Doors’, although there can be little doubt that Jim Morrison was the prime mover, with the lyrics including a ‘sampling’ of the 19th century English poet William Blake.

Take the highway to the end of the night
End of the night, end of the night
Take a journey to the bright midnight
End of the night, end of the night

Realms of bliss, realms of light
Some are born to sweet delight
Some are born to sweet delight
Some are born to the endless night
End of the night, end of the night
End of the night, end of the night

Realms of bliss, realms of light
Some are born to sweet delight
Some are born to sweet delight
Some are born to the endless night
End of the night, end of the night
End of the night, end of the night

Written by The Doors
