Blind Before I Stop (extended version)

(I’ll go blind before I stop)
(I’ll go blind before I stop)
They’re gonna have to come and lock me up
(I’ll go blind before I stop)
‘Cause this boy, mama just… wanna rock

There’s a two ton fireball burnin’ through the headphones
Cuttin’ up my head, makin’ ashes of my soul
A lightning bolt petition—tonite I’m gonna sign
Trouble out my window and I’m gonna find it

And I’m feelin’ the fever, takin’ in the heat
Bouncin’ to the boogie, hittin’ with the beat
Wrapped in the rhythm—dancin’ till we drop

And I’ll go blind before I stop
They’re gonna have to come and lock me up
And I’ll go blind before I stop
‘Cause this boy mama just wanna rock

Moonlite madness masquerade
Got my invitation baby, time to play
Rip off the headphones, shove my arm into the socket
Sound comes rushing thru me like an intravenous rocket

And I’m feelin’ the fever, takin’ in the heat
Bouncin’ to the boogie, hittin’ with the beat
Wrapped in the rhythm—dancin’ till we drop

And I’ll go blind before I stop
They’re gonna have to come and lock me up
And I’ll go blind before I stop
‘Cause this boy mama just wanna rock...

Doin’ it in the market, doin’ it in the mall
Doin’ it in the busses and the high school hall
Doin’ it in the alley, doin’ it for free
Now they’re doin’ it baby on MTV

Doin’ it in the backseat, doin’ it on the beach
Doin’ it in the grandstand, just dancin’ on the seats
Doin’ it in the movies, doin’ it on the train
Doin’ it a mile high in a big jet plane....

And I’m feelin’ the fever, takin’ in the heat
Bouncin’ to the boogie, hittin’ with the beat
Wrapped in the rhythm–dancin’ till we drop

(I’ll go blind before I stop)
(I’ll go blind before I stop)
‘Cause this boy, mama just… wanna rock

Moonlite madness masquerade–masquerade–masquerade
Rip off the headphones, shove my arm into the socket–the socket–the socket

And I’m feelin’ the fever, takin’ in the heat
Bouncin’ to the boogie, hittin’ with the beat
Wrapped in the rhythm–dancin’ till we drop

(I’ll go blind before I stop)
(I’ll go blind before I stop)
‘Cause this boy, mama just… wanna rock....

Doin’ it in the market, doin’ it in the mall
Doin’ it in the busses and the high school hall
Doin’ it in the alley, doin’ it for free
Now they’re doin’ it baby on MTV

Doin’ it in the backseat, doin’ it on the beach
Doin’ it in the grandstand, just dancin’ on the seats
Doin’ it in the movies, doin’ it on the train
Doin’ it a mile high in a big jet plane....

(I’ll go blind before I stop)
They’re gonna have to come and lock me up
(I’ll go blind before I stop)
‘Cause this boy, mama just… wanna rock

I’ll go blind before I stop
They’re gonna have to come and lock me up
I’ll go blind before I stop
‘Cause this boy mama just… wanna rock....
