Stand And Deliver

Album: No Smoke Without Fire (1978)
  • The wind and the moon are behind me
    I feel like a highway man of old
    Don't give no mercy I don't need no alibi
    I'm out to pick me some love from the jewelled sky

    Watch for me by the moonlight
    If hell doesn't block my way
    And you will be my prize of the night
    (And) If I'm only dreaming, tell me how and why
    I'm gonna take your love or your life
    Stand and deliver

    When I climb inside your window
    With more in my mind than a share of the night
    You can kick bite and scratch, but you'll have to surrender
    The chances are you won't see me no more
