  • You are hardcore, you make me hard
    You name the drama and I'll play the part
    It seems I saw you in some teenage wet dream
    I like your get-up, if you know what I mean

    I want it bad
    I want it now
    Oh, can't you see I'm ready now?
    I've seen all the pictures, I've studied them forever

    I want to make a movie, so let's star in it together
    Don't make a move till I say "action"
    Oh, here comes the hardcore life
    Put your money where your mouth is tonight

    Leave your make-up on and I'll leave on the light
    Come over here, babe, and talk in the mic
    Oh yeah, I hear you now
    It's gonna be one hell of a night

    You can't be a spectator, oh no
    You got to take these dreams and make them whole
    Oh, this is hardcore
    There is no way back for you

    Oh, this is hardcore
    This is me on top of you
    And I can't believe it took me this long
    That it took me this long

    This is the eye of the storm
    It's what men in stained raincoats pay for
    But in here it is pure, yeah
    This is the end of the line

    I've seen the storyline played out so many times before
    Oh, that goes in there
    Then that goes in there
    Then that goes in there

    Then that goes in there
    And then it's over
    Oh, what a hell of a show
    But what I want to know

    What exactly do you do for an encore?
