Song Lyric Sunday | “No Night So Long” – Dionne Warwick

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is Alone/Confined/Depressed/Isolated/Restless/Solo.


Boomers are old enough to remember some of the heyday of Dionne Warwick, and to have witnessed her comeback which included No Night So Long, the title track from Warwick’s second album for Arista Records in 1980.

While it doesn’t speak directly to this week’s prompt, this song keeps me connected to a lifelong friend who was considering suicide during a low point in her life when she felt abandoned. We traded mix-tapes over the years and now share playlists, and No Night So Long is always on the list. We’ve both lost our parents and are widows, but this song reminds us though it’s dark and you have traveled far, every long night gives you one bright shining star.


  • No Night So Long peaked at number twenty-three on the Billboard Hot 100 and spent three weeks at number one on the adult contemporary chart. It was Warwick’s third number one on the AC chart.
  •  Richard Kerr and Will Jennings also wrote Warwick’s 1979 comeback hit I’ll Never Love This Way Again which won her the 1980 Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.

The video is a live appearance from The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson.

  1. Her voice is so powerful. Did you see her on “The Masked Singer”? She was the mouse and shouldn’t have gone home as early as she did. We watch every week and play the game with my sister in Texas, my daughter here in Jacksonville and my daughter in Tampa. It’s a great way to play family games in this world of social distancing. Thanks for sharing this one! 🙂
