  • One day you feel quite stable
    The next you're comin' off the wall
    But I think you should warn me
    If you start heading for a fall
    I see the problem start
    I watch the tension grow
    I see you keeping it to yourself
    And then instead of reaching conclusions
    I see you reaching for something else

    No one can stop you now
    Tonight you're on the loose
    No one to tell you how
    Tonight you're on the loose
    No one can stop you now
    Tonight you're on the loose
    No one to tell you how
    Tonight you're on the loose

    I see no harm or danger in escaping
    If the method suits the style
    We put the mind on idle
    And let the others take it for awhile
    When the pace is too fast
    And I think I won't last
    You know where I'll be found
    I'll be standing here beside myself
    Getting ready for the final round

    No one can stop me now
    Tonight I'm on the loose
    No one to tell me how
    Tonight I'm on the loose
    No one can stop me now
    Tonight I'm on the loose
    No one to tell me how
    Tonight I'm on the loose

    The time we feel most stable
    Is the time we're comin' off the wall
    And there's every indication
    We may be heading for a fall
    So let the problems start
    And let the tension grow
    We'll be keeping it to ourselves
    And while they're busy reaching their conclusions
    We'll be reaching for something else

    No one can stop us now
    Tonight we're on the loose
    No one to tell us how
    Tonight we're on the loose
    No one can stop us now
    Tonight we're on the loose
    No one to tell us how
    Tonight we're on the loose Writer/s: IAN CRICHTON, JAMES CRICHTON, JAMES GILMOUR, STEVE NEGUS, MICHAEL SADLER
