SOMETHING IN THE NIGHT

Live 13 Feb 1977 version

Woahhh
Woahhh
Woahhh
Woahhh
Woahhh
Yeahhh
Woahhh
Woahhh
Woahhh
Woahhh

I'm riding down Kingsley figuring I'll get a drink
I turn the radio way up loud so I don't have to think
And I take her to the floor looking for a moment when the world seems right
And I tear into the guts, hmmm, of something in the night

Well God's angels can tear this town down and blow it all into the sea
Well I don't give a damn, yeah that's alright with me
But the streets are living soul, but there's nothing but heroes in sight
Just mutations that gone wrong, hmmm, something in the night

Yeah, nothing is forgotten or forgiven when it's your last time around, whoa!
I got stuff running 'round my head that I just can't live down

Well we found the things we loved, they were crushed and dying in the dirt
We thought we could pick up the pieces, and get away without getting hurt
But they caught us at the state line, burned our cars in one last fire fight
And sent us running burned and blind, woahhh, chasing something in the night

Woahhh
Woahhh
Woahhh
Woahhh
Yeahhh
Woahhh
Woahhh
