Lonely Is The Night

Album: Don't Say No (1981)
  • Lonely is the night when you find yourself alone
    Your demons come to light and your mind is not your own
    Lonely is the night when there's no one left to call
    You feel the time is right, say the writing's on the wall

    It's a high time to fight when the walls are closin' in
    Call it what you like it's time you got to win
    Lonely, lonely, lonely your spirit's sinkin' down
    You find you're not the only stranger in this town

    Red lights, green lights, stop and go jive
    Headlines, deadlines jammin' your mind
    You been stealin' shots from the side
    Let your feeling's go for a ride

    There's danger out tonight, the man is on the prowl
    Get the dynamite, the boys are set to howl
    Lonely is the night when you hear the voices call
    Are you ready for a fight, do you wanna take it all?

    Slowdown, showdown waitin' on line
    Show time, no time for changin' your mind
    Streets are ringin', march to the sound
    Let your secrets follow you down

    Somebody's watchin' you baby, so much you can do
    Nobody's stoppin' you baby, from makin' it too
    One glimpse'll show you now baby, what the music can do
    One kiss'll show you now baby, it can happen to you

    No more sleepin', wastin' our time
    Midnight creepin's, first on our minds
    No more lazin' 'round the TV
    You'll go crazy, come out with me

    Feelin' lonely
    Lonely is the night
    Feelin' lonely
    Lonely is the night
