Lonely Is The Night

Billy Squier

Lonely is the night when you find yourself alone

Your demons come to light and your mind is not your own

Lonely is the night when there's no one left to call

You feel the time is right--(say) the writin's on the wall

It's a high time to fight when the walls are closin' in

Call it what you like--it's time you got to win

Lonely, lonely, lonely--your spirit's sinkin' down

You find you're not the only stranger in this town

Red lights, green lights, stop 'n go, drive

Headlines, deadlines jamming your mind

You been stealing shots from the side

Let your feelings go for a ride

There's danger out tonight..the man is on the prowl

Get the dynamite...the boys are set to prowl

Lonely is the night when you hear the voices call

Are you ready for thefight--do you wanna take it all

Slowdown, showdown--waiting on line

Showtime, no time changing your mind

Streets are ringing, march to the sound

Let your secrets follow you down

Somebody's watchin' you baby--so much you can do

Nobody's stoppin' you baby, from makin' it too

One glimpse'll show you now baby, what the music can do

One kiss'll show you now baby--it can happen to you

No more sleeping, wasting our time

Midnight creeping's first on our minds

No more lazing 'round the tv

You'll go crazy--come out with me
