Album: First Offense (1983)
Charted: 7
  • I wear my sunglasses at night
    So I can so I can
    Watch you weave then breathe your story lines
    And I wear my sunglasses at night
    So I can so I can
    Keep track of the visions in my eyes

    While she's deceiving me
    It cuts my security has
    She got control of me
    I turn to her and say

    Don't switch the blade on the guy in shades oh no
    Don't masquerade with the guy in shades oh no
    I can't believe it!
    Cause you got it made with the guy in shades oh no

    And I wear my sunglasses at night
    So I can so I can
    Forget my name while you collect your claim
    And I wear my sunglasses at night
    So I can so I can
    See the light that's right before my eyes

    While she's deceiving me
    She cuts my security
    Has she got control of me
    I turn to her and say

    Don't switch the blade on the guy in shades oh no
    Don't masquerade with the guy in shades oh no
    I can't believe it!
    Cause you got it made with the guy in shades oh no
    Cause you got it made with the guy in shades oh no

    Oh I say I wear my sunglasses at night
    I wear my sunglasses at night
    I wear my sunglasses at night
    I say it to you now
    I wear my sunglasses at night
    I wear my sunglasses at night
    I wear my sunglasses at night
    I cry to you
    I wear my sunglasses at night
    I wear my sunglasses at night

  • John from Cg, NjI love the Guitar solo in this song, anyone know who plays lead guitar on it?
  • The Murf from Whitehorse, YtCorey also had a huge hit with "Never Surrender" so how does he qualify as a OHW?
  • Nicole from Plymouth, MaThis is a great song and deserves a lot more credit. "I WEAR MY SUNGLASSES AT NIGHT".
  • Lefteris from Nea Smyrni, GreeceCorey also made some song contributions to successful soundtracks (for example "Eurasian Eyes" in the movie "Nine 1/2 Weeks") but he will be mostly remembered for this 1983 song, although it is obvious that it shares the same intro as "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)" by Eurythmics (1982), an intro also used by The Cars in their 1984 smash hit "Heartbeat City (Jacki)" & its Hellenic cover version by Greek band Synnefa Me Pantelonia and their homonymous song in 2000.
