  • Sarah has her dreams and makes her plans
    To get what she wants when she can
    A little bit of heaven was all she asked for
    In those silent moments deep in the night
    She'd find herself make it feel all right
    Hungers for the bright life and something more

    With her young heart so gently beating
    A secret rendezvous lovers meeting
    Out in the night, out in the night night night night
    Played on the radio, heard on the news
    Baby's gone lost they found her shoes
    You can turn out the light
    You better turn out the light

    * you go walking on the wild side
    Learn how to run 'cause you can't hide
    Better steel yourself away
    Another page, another day
    In your lonely heart
    Beating out in the dark
    Lonely heart

    And beneath the lights the rock 'n' roll band
    Electric guitars, one night stands
    Are you giving away, giving away
    With hungry and oh so desperate eyes
    The souls who get hurt believe in their lies
    You only betray only betray


    And now you cry yourself to sleep

    Against the odds you wanted to beat
    You never say no, never say no no no no
    Left with the promises that you swore
    The price you pay is the love you tore
    Now where did it go, where did it go

    * repeat
