  • We're running with the shadows of the night
    So baby take my hand, you'll be all right
    Surrender all your dreams to me tonight
    They'll come true in the end

    You said, oh girl, it's a cold world
    When you keep it all to yourself
    I said, you can't hide on the inside
    All the pain you've ever felt
    Ransom my heart, but baby don't look back
    'Cause we got nobody else

    We're running with the shadows of the night
    So baby take my hand, it'll be all right
    Surrender all your dreams to me tonight
    They'll come true in the end

    You know that sometimes, it feels like
    It's all moving way too fast
    Use every alibi and words you deny
    That love ain't meant to last
    You can cry tough baby, it's all right
    You can let me down easy, but not tonight

    We're running with the shadows of the night
    So baby take my hand, it'll be all right
    Surrender all your dreams to me tonight
    They'll come true in the end

    We're running with the shadows of the night
    So baby take my hand, it'll be all right
    Surrender all your dreams to me tonight
    They'll come true in the end

    And now the hands of time are standin' still
    Midnight angel, won't you say you will

    We're running with the shadows of the night
    So baby take my hand, it'll be all right
    Surrender all your dreams to me tonight
    They'll come true in the end

    We're running with the shadows of the night
    So baby take my hand, it'll be all right
    Surrender all your dreams to me tonight
    They'll come true in the end

    We're running with the shadows of the night
    So baby take my hand, it'll be all right
    Surrender all your dreams to me tonight Writer/s: D.L. Byron

  • Bob from Franklin TennesseeI believe that it was a depiction of Rosie the riveter in the video
  • Steve Burdin @ Northern Pop Quizzes from West Yorkshire UkRachel Sweet did indeed record an early version of the song but I believe Helen Schneider predated it with her version.
