  • No intentions
    I was gone for a night
    Nothing's forever
    The cruel daylight
    Brought me back to my senses
    Got caught in here
    Under false pretenses

    No way out
    None whatsoever
    I made up a story
    Thought it was clever
    She didn't ask
    And I got no reply
    But later that night
    I heard her cry

    No way out she doesn't buy my story
    No way out she doesn't buy my story

    No accusations
    But can she forget?
    Nothing's forever
    Since yesterday
    She's a little bit colder
    It won't happen again
    What could I've told her?

    No way out she doesn't buy my story
    No way out she doesn't buy my story

    How can she tell the truth from the lies
    How does she know when to close her eyes
    She doesn't want to lose me
    So she only sees what she wants to see Writer/s: Ina Wolf, Peter F Wolf

  • Caligula from Somewhere In Minnesota The Priestly Character in Jefferson Starship "No Way Out" Is Father Guido Sarducci And I will Pray for Him ! And it's Wednesday April 7th 2021
  • G. Pollock from Windber, PaThe woman who plays the wife is NOT China Kantner. She would have been 13 at the time. The resemblance is close though.
  • Brent from Denair, CaThe priest is Father Guido Sarducci (played by Don Novello, a common character in Saturday Night Live of the 70's and 80's episodes). Yes, he was in the Casper movie.
  • Wendell from Milton, PeThis song is an interesting case of selective amnesia. The girl knows he has cheatedbut lets it slide. The video is quite appropriate. He has more guilt by her ignoring it then he ever would with a direct confrontation.
  • Linc from Beaumont, TxIn this video - the priestly character - is strangely similar to the priest who comes to bless Casper's House in the movie Casper...wierd!
    This video is so '80s - pumping iron in bed! I mean we're Magnum PI - suprised he's not in here with the Miami Vice enterouge and Molly Ringwald!
  • B-man from Detroit, MiThe girl who plays Mickey's wife is China Kantner, daughter of Grace Slick and Paul Kantner. She went on later to become an MTV vj.
