  • Lyrics
  • The dark side's callin' now, nothin' is real
    She'll never know just how I feel
    From out of the shadows she walks like a dream
    Make me feel crazy, make me feel so mean

    Ain't nothin' gonna save you from the love that's blind
    Slip to the dark side and cross that line
    On the dark side, oh yeah
    On the dark side, oh yeah

    The dark side's callin' now, nothin' is real
    She'll never know just how I feel
    From out of the shadows she walks like a dream
    Make me feel crazy, make me feel so mean

    Ain't nothin' gonna save you from the love that's blind
    Slip to the dark side and cross that line
    On the dark side, oh yeah
    On the dark side, oh yeah

    Ain't nothin' gonna save you from the love that's blind
    Slip to the dark side and cross that line
    On the dark side, oh yeah
    On the dark side, oh yeah

    On the dark side, oh yeah
    On the dark side, oh yeahWriter/s: JOHN A. CAFFERTY
