  • I remember flashbacks lighting up magic waves
    Eight o'clock, saloon emptiness, handle it
    The wide old image I had to view 11 seconds ago
    I didn't say anything, so you will never know

    I got away for a little while
    But then it came back much harder

    Swinging on the cable line to pull it
    Climbing down the ghostly wine in a battery
    That light in your eyes, I search for religiously
    Oh, when it's not there, oh Lord, it's over me

    I got away for a little while
    But then it came back much harder

    'Til I ever hold you out there again
    Will you be mine?
    'Cause I'm on a ghost ship driving my heart
    in Hong Kong
    It's the last ride boarding here tonight
    Out in the bay (out in the bay) I need lantern in you to shine out bright rays
    Rat race

    Living outta body here, what can I do?
    It's up to the doc everyday to join here with you

    I had to get away for a little while
    But then it came back much harder

    'Til I ever hold you out there again
    Will you be mine?
    'Cause I'm on a ghost ship driving my heart
    in Hong Kong
    It's the last ride boarding here tonight
    Out in the bay (out in the bay) I need lantern in you to shine out bright rays
    Rat race

    'Til I ever hold you out there again
    Will you be mine?
    'Cause I'm on a ghost ship driving my heart
    in Hong Kong
    It's the last ride boarding here tonight
    Out in the bay (out in the bay) I need lantern in you to shine out bright rays
    Rat race
    Rat race
