Disco Apocalypse

Album: Hold Out (1980)

  • Down the side streets and the avenue
    There be sisters walkin' two by two
    Their dresses and their shoes are new
    But their hearts are weary through and through
    And it's a long way into the light of the day
    While the jukebox and the radio play

    Where the days turn into the nights
    People move into the sounds and sights
    Like the moth is drawn into the lights
    Like the tight-rope walker into the heights
    It's in their hearts, it's in their hips,
    It's in their feet, it's on their lips

    Tonight's the night I'm gonna make you mine
    Gonna dance right out onto the edge of time
    When the sound starts pumpin'
    And the lights are flashin'
    And my hearts-a-thumpin'
    And I feel the passion
    And the world is right there waiting
    At my finger tips
    Disco... apocalypse

    In the dawn the city seems to sigh
    And the hungry hear their children cry
    People watch the time go by
    They do their jobs and live and die
    And in their dreams they rise above
    By strength, or hate, or luck, or love

    Tonight's the night I'm gonna make you mine
    Gonna dance right out onto the edge of time
    When the world starts turnin'
    And the dreams are burnin'
    And the skies awaken
    Through the wind and the fire
    They will be dancing still

    It's in their hearts, it's in their hips,
    It's in their feet, it's on their lips
    A single sound that never ends
    They die each night and live again

    I'm gonna make you mine
    Tonight's the night
    Out on the edge of time
    With the dreams of flesh and love dancing in my mind
    Dancing through the fire on the edge of time Writer/s: Jackson Browne
