When the night's quiet and you don't care anymore And your eyes are tired and there's someone at your door And you realize you want to let go And the weak lies in cold walls you embrace you At your insides and baby I ain't no liar, I walk Streets of fire Streets of fire Streets of fire Streets of fire Now I'm wandering, a loser down the tracks An' I'm lyin', but babe I can't go back 'Cause in the darkness I hear somebody call my name And when you realize how they tricked you this time And it's all lies but I'm strung out on the wire, in these
Streets of fire Streets of fire Streets of fire
I live now, only with strangers I talk to only strangers I walk with angels that have no place And don't look at my face Don't come to my place 'Cause I'm strung out on my wire, cross
Streets of fire Streets of fire Streets of fire Streets of fire, oh yeah

Brian from Chalfont, PaYou have got to love a person who sticks to his ethics and does not sell out.
Steve from Torrance, CaBruce's objection to the use of his song in the 1984 movie was due to the fact that the producers wanted the song remade with a younger, hipper vocalist. Had they used the original version, permission would have been granted.
