Will You Be Home Tonight

Album: Disturbing the Peace (1985)

  • He's just a kid and loves to ride
    Taking the freeway, driving blind
    Just like a loaded gun, he pushes down the hammer
    Hard to fire

    In the embrace of his gasoline lover
    Her sleek body wraps all around
    Turns on the radio, lights up his cigarette
    Takes the lights up, dims them down
    A silent Geisha, the perfect seducer
    Knows someone is waiting too long

    Oh will you be home tonight
    Oh please say you'll be there

    He's just a kid who loves to drive
    To get out of sight out of his mind
    He pushed the hammer down
    And shot just like a bullet from a gun

    Drunk on the fix of the powerful kick
    As he shoots up from zero to speed
    Has one more drink of the cold liquid courage
    To keep on the level he needs
    Soothed by the sound of the wheels on the ground
    But he won't hear the tires when they scream

    Oh will you be home tonight
    Oh will you be home tonight

    Oh will you be home tonight
    Oh will you be home tonight
