Faster Than the Speed of Night

I don’t want to let another minute get by
They’re slipping through our fingers but we’re ready to fly
The night’ll be our cover and we’ll huddle below
We got the music in our bodies and the radio

There really isn’t any time to lose
They’re going to catch us
If we wait until it gets too light

You’re such a pretty boy
Let me show you what to do and you’ll do it
But you gotta move faster
Faster than the speed of night

Faster than the speed of night
Faster than the speed of night
It’s all we ever wanted
And all we’ll ever need
And now it’s slipping through our fingers
Faster than the speed of night

Faster than the speed of night
Faster than the speed of night
It’s all we ever wanted
And all we’ll ever need
And now it’s slipping through our fingers
Faster than the speed of
Faster than the speed of night
Faster than the speed of night
Faster than the speed of night
Faster than the speed of night

Let me show you how to drive me crazy
Let me show you how to make me feel so good
Let me show you how to take me to the edge of the stars… and back again

You’ve gotta show me how to drive you crazy
You’ve gotta show me all the things you want to happen to you
We’ve gotta tell eachother everything we always wanted someone to do

I don’t want to push you now and I don’t want to rush
We’re getting closer every second now but close is not enough!
And the night’ll be our cover and we’ll huddle below
We got the music in our fingers and the radio

There really isn’t any time to lose
We’re going to loose it
If we wait until it gets too light

You’re such a pretty boy
Let me show you what to do and you’ll do it
But you gotta move faster
Faster than the speed of night

Faster than the speed of night
Faster than the speed of night
It’s all we ever wanted
And all we’ll ever need
And it’s slipping through our fingers
Faster than the speed of night

Faster than the speed of night
Faster than the speed of night
It’s all we ever wanted
And all we’ll ever need
And it’s slipping through our fingers
Faster than the speed of
Faster than the speed of night
Faster than the speed of night

Faster than the speed of night
(I don’t want let another minute get by)
Faster than the speed of night
(it’s slipping through our fingers but we’re ready to fly)
Faster than the speed of night
(I don’t want let another minute get by)
Faster than the speed of night
(love is gonna get us while the moon is in the sky)
Faster than the speed of night
(I don’t want let another minute get by)
Faster than the speed of night
Faster than the speed of night …

Aaah …
Aaah …
Aaah …
[vocal wail to fade]

Gonna Get Better

I’m sat here all alone
Here in my one room home
No one comes ‘round no more
No one knocks on my door
Was high, then came the fall
The tax man took it all
I didn’t play the rules
I was a careless fool

But it’s gonna get better
Feel it in my bones
Just got to hold you ‘cause I’m all alone
I need your touch
I need you here to stay
This time I’ll never let you get away

They laughed at all my jokes
Look around, where are those crazy folks?
I think of real good times
Those wasted partying nights....

Just bring your loving home
Don’t waste love on the phone
I love you, yes, it’s true
Hell’s what I’ve been going through
There’ll be more ups and downs
Please make that turn around
Not that we’ve played ‘away’
You’re coming home to stay

And it’s gonna get better
Feel it in my bones
Just got to hold you ‘cause I’m all alone
I need your touch
I need you here to stay
Never ever gonna let you get away

Feel it in my bones (feel it in my bones)
‘Cause I’m all alone....
